Warriors fight off Trail Blazers, win Game 1 121-109 - Apr 17, 2017

Stephen
Curry
An enthralling Game 1 to open the 2017 postseason was tied at both halftime and at the end of the third quarter. Damian Lillard (6'3''-PG-90, college: Weber St.) and C.J. McCollum (6'4''-G-91, college: Lehigh) combined for 75 points. It felt more like the Western Conference Finals. In the end, the Warriors prevailed 121-109 over the Trail Blazers, in a game that reminded us of Portland's potential and Golden State's preeminence. They were the losers, but McCollum and Lillard's near heroics were the surprise story from Game 1. The Trail Blazers were doing the punching on offense the first three quarters, and the Warriors were doing their very best to counter. McCollum was unconscious, hitting 11 of his first 15 shots while scoring 27 first half points - and he held Klay Thompson mostly in check. McCollum finished with 41 points; Lillard posted 34 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. They were the two most dangerous players at Oracle Arena on Easter Sunday. The Warriors weren't able to start pulling away until the fourth quarter - with both Stephen Curry (6'3''-PG-88, college: Davidson) and Kevin Durant (6'9''-SF-88, college: Texas) on the bench. Led by Draymond Green (6'7''-F-90, college: Michigan St.), they finally put the defensive clamps on the Blazers and got multiple stops. An 88 third quarter gridlock quickly turned into a 103-90 Warriors lead. The game was won on this 15-2 run and 7 those points were scored by Ian Clark (6'3''-G-91, college: Belmont). Yep, the two key bench contributors were not Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston (6'7''-G-85) - rather Clark and Javale McGee (7'0''-C-88, college: Nevada). Clark had a 5-0 run by himself in the second quarter, nailing a 3 and finishing a steal with a gorgeous left-handed floater. McGee's energy was much-needed and felt all over the court - 6 points, 5 rebounds, 2 blocks in 10 very impactful minutes. Curry and Durant did nothing out of the ordinary, but both were their effective selves. Curry finished with 29 points and 5 rebounds on 9 of 19 shooting. Durant went into closer mode late in the fourth quarter, scoring on consecutive trips down the floor to give the Warriors a 113-99 edge with just over three minutes to play. KD ended up with a team-high 32 points and 10 rebounds on 12 of 20 shooting. It was his 40th career 30-point game in the postseason, and obviously his first-ever with Golden State. Thompson scored 15 points but went 1 of 6 from downtown. It was Green who provided the most riveting performance, and something Portland just had no answer for. Green scored 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter, was blocking shots off the backboard and screaming at the top of his lungs, igniting his teammates. The 12 rebounds and 9 assists were vital in the end, too. The Warriors rode the wave of an 8-0 at the end of the third quarter to gain some breathing room on Portland. On one end of the floor, McGee soared for a block and directly on the other he corralled an offensive rebound, slid the ball to Curry for a corner 3 that put the Warriors up 80-77. Immediately after a timeout, Durant drove left for a leaning And-1 bank shot, extending the lead to 83-77. Oracle Arena finally woke up during this vital sequence for the Warriors. But the good vibes didn't last long. An improbable McCollum bank shot and a Pat Connaughton And-1 of his own tied things up at 88 apiece at the end of the third quarter. It was a reminder that this series won't be a breeze. The Warriors have a couple things to clean up, starting with turnovers. Golden State committed 9 of them in the first 14 minutes, ending with 16 total. Game 2 is set for Wednesday at 7:30 from Oracle Arena.

Wizards rally to tie series with uncomfortable Raptors - 13 hours ago
In the lead-up to Sunday's Raptors-Wizards Game 4, Toronto coach Dwayne Casey posed a rhetorical question for public consumption. 'How do we respond?' the coach wondered. The Raptors had been run off the Capital One Arena floor in Game 3, dropping their first loss of the series in a turnover-rife shambles that saw Toronto's players, veterans and youngsters alike, lose their collective cool in the face of Washington's timely injection of physicality. 'How do you respond when someone is up...   [read more]

LeBron James
Cavs top Pacers 104-100 in Game 4 to even series - 13 hours ago
LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) has been the first-round king for 12 years. On Sunday night, he needed Kyle Korver (6'7''-F/G-81, college: Creighton)'s 3-point shooting to put him in position to extend his reign. The two combined for all of Cleveland's points in a late 10-2 run, helping the Cavaliers to a 104-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers to even the series at 2. James drew boos from the crowd after flipping the ball up the court to run out the clock. 'You don't ever want to go down 3-1...   [read more]

Celtics Lose Game 4 to Bucks, 104-102 - 13 hours ago
Giannis Antetokounmpo (6'11''-G/F-94, agency: Octagon Europe) scored 27 points, including tipping in the go-ahead basket with 5 seconds left, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics 104-102 on Sunday to tie their first-round playoff series at two games apiece. Boston's Marcus Morris (6'9''-F-89, college: Kansas) missed a 14-footer at the buzzer with Khris Middleton (6'8''-F-91, college: Texas A&M)'s hand in his face to seal a nail-biting win for the Bucks. Seconds earlier, the 6-f...   [read more]
