93-73 Warriors heading into the 4th. Somehow the Warriors must soldier on sans Anderson Varejao

Kevin Arnovitz ESPN Staff Writer 

Apparently the first set of double technicals wasn't enough to defuse the fracas between Anderson Varejao and Gerald Henderson. The pair are whistled for a fresh set of techs just before the end of the third quarter and were summarily tossed from the game.

Anderson Varejao and Gerald Henderson exchange words after the play after Henderson trips over Varejao's leg. Players on the floor instantly tilt their heads up to see replay on big screen. None follows, but they continue to check back, peering upwards. Double technical fouls are ultimately assessed to Varejao and Henderson.

"Everything is fine. I saw my chest on the way out (of the care center). It looks very symmetrical."

A determined-looking Clayton Kershaw is perfect through four innings against the Padres. The Dodgers left-hander struck out the first four batters he faced and there has been nothing close to a hit. The Dodgers are in the midst of a six-game home losing streak and will be winless on the entire homestand if they fall today.

Portland made up some ground in the second quarter, and trails Golden State 65-51 at halftime. After a chilly first quarter, the Trail Blazers have started to hit a few shots. Ed Davis chipped in six points in the quarter as a presence down low, while Allen Crabbe (nine points) and Mo Harkless (seven points) have been bright spots. Portland's dynamic backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum continue to struggle from the field. They're a combined 3-for-19 for 14 points. Golden State is also abusing Portland on the offensive glass -- they've recovered 11 of their 25 missed field goal attempts.

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

Despite his size, Damian Lillard probably defends the post better than anywhere else. He's done a nice job of contesting Shaun Livingston's trademark turnarounds.

Kevin Arnovitz ESPN Staff Writer 

Setting aside skill, one problem the Trail Blazers have already encountered: They're a smaller team than Golden State by a good margin. We are seeing it on the glass and, for instance, when Draymond Green bullies CJ McCollum in the post.
