Steph Curry finished with 36 points and Draymond Green recorded another triple double. Klay Thompson chipped in 19 points as the Warriors take Game 3 with commanding road win. This marked an NBA record 22nd consecutive series they have won a game on the road in the playoffs. Curry, Green and Thompson were the only Warriors to score in double figures, but they got plenty of help. The bench combined to score 27 points and played great on both ends of the floor. Draymond Green controlled the game on both sides of the floor.
On offense, he had the triple double and he pushed the ball up the floor forcing Portland to be on their toes at all times. On the defensive end, Green grabbed rebounds, forced difficult shots and was just a handful with his energy. Andre Iguodala was limited to 18 minutes as he went out with a lower leg injury. It has been said that he could miss Game 4 on Monday night. Iguodala is the latest injury for the Warriors as they’re already without Kevin Durant and Boogie Cousins. Initially the Warriors was my pick to win it in six games, but can they close it out Monday night? We have learned that Damian Lillard is dealing with a rib injury.
As far as Portland is concerned, they had the game once again. They had a lead as big as 18 points and went into halftime with a 13 point lead. Like always, in the 3rd quarter they begin to lose control of the game. This game was no different as the Warriors outscored them 29-13 in the 3rd quarter. Once again, Portland was led by C.J. McCollum as he finished with 23 points. Damian Lillard has another bad gaming as he finished with 19 points. The Blazers could be fatigued because these guys have been logging a lot of minutes this postseason. In the first half, Terry Stots looked like a genius by inserting Meyers Leonard into the starting lineup. Leonard had a great game as he helped stretch the floor and defending the pick-and-roll. Leonard finished with 16 points.
Can the Blazers prevent from being swept for the third consecutive season? Of course, they were swept the last two years in the first round. What did you think about Game 3?
