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.

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.

Very little went right for the Trail Blazers in the first quarter of their opener against the Golden State Warriors in the conference semifinals, as they trail 37-17. The Warriors ran up an effective field goal percentage of 70 percent against the Trail Blazers' undersized and beleaguered defense. Portland's effective field goal percentage was a paltry 26.2 percent. The Trail Blazers loss the battle on their glass, allowing the Warriors to collect four of 10 misses.
