The Blazers finally put in a solid full game in their series with the Warriors winning Game 3 on their court. They are still down 2-1 in the series and may have to face Stephen Curry in Game 4, but they have to be confident coming into the game.
The Blazers have beaten the Warriors in their last 2 games in their house.
In Game 3 the Blazers beat the Warriors 120-108.
Golden State Warriors
Game 3 proved that basketball is a team game, as while Klay Thomson and Draymond Green combined for 72 points they did not get much help and Golden State lost by 12 points.
In Game 3 Thomson and Green were the only starters, and 2 of only 3 players, that scored in double figures.
The Warriors had 10 more assists that the Blazers in Game 3, but they could not knock down the shots when it counted. Playing better D will be key to them winning Game 4, as if Curry sits, which is a distinct possibility, they have to keep the Blazers from lighting up the scoreboard.
This season the Warriors are 35-9 on the road.
The Blazers shot a red-hot FG% of 56.7% in Game 3 and if they can shoot the rock like that again they should even the series.
Damian Lillard went for 40 points in Game 3, but C.J. McCollum and Al-Farouq Aminu gave him help each going for at least 22 points.
Lillard had a solid shooting game and that is key, as he scored in the first couple of games, but struggled with his shot and he has to shoot a legit FG% for the Blazers to even this series.
Lillard also had 10 assists in Game 3 and when he was diching the other Portland players were draining their shots. He will get his points, but keeping the other players from scoring big is what the Warriors must do to take a commanding 3-1 lead.
The Blazers are 32-13 at home this season.
