Durant optimistic of playing in Warriors' Game 3 at Portland

However, should Durant play after sitting out of Game 2, bet the house on the Warriors securing a 3-0 series lead.

In the Regular season of this National Basketball Association, the Warriors dominated the Blazers in all the four games.

If the Clippers want to have a chance to beat the Warriors, they must stick to their style of play, and they can not let the game turn into a perimeter matchup. Javale McGee, especially, made a difference by grabbing multiple alley-oop buckets over smaller defenders on his way to 15 points on 7-for-7 shooting. "Our guys understand that's the name of the game".

"People want to talk about the shooting in the back court and all that stuff, but this has been a great defensive team for awhile", Kerr said. "We didn't do that".

Even without Durant, Golden State still has three All-Stars to rely on, even if none of them shot well. Draymond Green had six points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Heather and Jason America proved their Blazer knowledge and won a Damian Lillard autographed ball. The pace of the game receives an undeniable jolt every time McGee touches the floor. Warriors scored 33 and the Blazers just scored 21 points. McCollum had 11 points and shot 4 for 17.

With the game well in hand, Steve Kerr went to the bench for the majority of the fourth quarter.

More important than the poor shooting, and unlike the first half, Westbrook was not getting his teammates involved, so they started standing around and watching the show, which was a stark contrast to the Rockets who played with a team energy. C Ed Davis (L shoulder surgery), C Festus Ezeli (L knee surgery) and C Jusuf Nurkic (R leg fracture) were listed as out.

The third period saw the Warriors explode to outscore the visitors 28-12.

Lillard (1-for-8) and McCollum (1-for-5) were held to a total of four points in the period.

Curry led the Warriors with 19 points but shot 6 of 18. "And that's what they did".

Portland's Damian Lillard was perplexed by how McGee beat them in Game 2. "But you can't give them 75 either".

John Wall finished with 32 points and nine assists, including the dish to Beal for his shot from beyond the arc with 38 seconds remaining that sealed the win for the hosts.

"Sometimes shots go in, sometimes they don't. We're going to err on the side of caution". "I thought in the third quarter we settled our offense down which helped our defense".

If the Clippers can stay healthy during the playoffs, they could pose a problem for the Warriors. Durant returned for the final three regular-season games and looked ready to take his game to a new level in his first postseason with the Warriors.

But the Warriors didn't need their injured all-world forward - Durant missed Game 2 with a minor calf strain - or the defining skill of their All-Star backcourt to take a commanding 2-0 lead over the Blazers in Round 1. "If we throw him out there and he pulls it and he's out a few weeks, you'd feel like an idiot.".

The alternate way to watch the Game 2 of Warriors vs Blazers if the user doesn't have access to a cable or satellite log-in, then use Sling TV and watch the game on TNT. He had tied SG Clyde Drexler's franchise record of seven straight with 25 or more when he tallied 34 in Game 1. He's just the second player in Warriors history-Rick Barry being the other-to reach triple-digits in playoff thefts, per Warriors Public Relations.
