Warriors are one win away from NBA Finals ... again

Warriors are one win away from NBA Finals ... again

The Bucks or the Raptors await them in the finals, and that's only if the Warriors can get two more wins against the Trail Blazers.

After the celebration in the locker room and post game speech by head coach Steve Kerr, Cook emerged from the iconic Warriors locker room still in uniform and started to get some shots up and work on his game. We got to play and give him an opportunity to get back, and I think that's what really falls on our shoulders.

"We've been here before".

"So, I mean, hopefully he's back sooner than later, but you know, as a guy who is in the war, in the battle every night, we can't sit and look over our shoulder and wonder when he or DeMarcus [Cousins] is coming back". Even after Portland regained control midway through the fourth with an eight-point lead, Golden State continued to fight, enough to ultimately claim victory by a final score of 114-111.

Golden State's Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson together dropped 61 points and buried eight three-pointers overshadowing Portland's Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum who had 45 points and eight 3-pointers together. "He was a wrecking ball, destroying everything in his path".

Against the spread: The outright is the better play than the -115 to cover +2.5 on the spread. Stephen Curry ended up putting up 37 points on 11 of 22 shooting while adding in eight rebounds and eight assists.

Game 3 is scheduled for Saturday, May 18th, in Portland, Oregon.

"It was not a surprise because he gets that strip quite a bit", Green said. In spite of holding the lead heading into the final stanza, the Nuggets initiated a back-and-forth dogfight that saw both sides scrambling to get buckets. Golden State is frequently double-teaming Lillard and blitzing him on pick-and-rolls, trying to force the ball out of his hands, and he acknowledged that he's been hesitant at times because of the Warriors' coverages. "But right now we're a very confident group". Golden State is third in the Western Conference shooting 38.5 percent from downtown.

Leonard finished with 16 points and Evan Turner 12 for Portland, which has now lost 11 of 12 playoff games to the Warriors in the last four seasons. "It was a much better game than we played in Game 1. We had a chance to get one here on the road".

Curry sparked a 14-3 run for the Warriors as the National Basketball Association champions overturned a 108-100 deficit with just over four minutes remaining in a pulsating battle at the Oracle Arena. The new way worked as the Warriors only buried nine 3-pointers.

"It was a nice flow", Curry said. "He played well and we won (laughter)".

Seemingly rejuvenated by getting a day off Wednesday - after having been rushed into Game 1 in the wake of an emotional series win over Denver - the Trail Blazers threatened to blow out the two-time defending champs, going up 67-50 in the first minute of the second half. CJ McCollum had 22 points in Portland's eighth straight playoff loss to the Warriors since 2016. "Scoring 33 in the second half is not going to do it". Portland led 65-50 at the break.
