Thompson demoralizing Hawks on glass ... again

While Warriors fans sat stunned, Oakland's own Damian Lillard's group of family & friends behind the Blazers' bench were standing and cheering loudly at Oracle Arena before the fourth quarter started.

Portland fans were hyped when Blazers came home down 2-0 to Clippers. Imagine how they'd be at 1-1 vs Warriors. Difference-making loud

Five seconds of ballet as the quarter ends, as the Trail Blazers ping the ball around in transition to find Damian Lillard a 3-pointer at the horn. Portland leads 87-76 with 12 minutes of basketball remaining at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Portland trying to hang on to its lead, which is down to four points midway through the 3rd quarter. No Harkless, who has been checking Klay Thompson, has gone to the bench with his fourth foul. Blazers are still moving the ball well, but Warriors' D is turning it up.

The Trail Blazers weather the Golden State comeback in the closing minutes of the first half and rebuild their lead. It's 59-51 at intermission. CJ McCollum (14 points) and Al-Farouq Aminu (13 points) both shot well from distance. Damian Lillard struggled to find driving lanes in the Portland half court, but hit a big 3-pointer a couple of minutes before halftime and dropped a pretty dime to Mason Plumlee in early offense.

Warriors trail 59-51 at the half. Defense was bad until the Draymond at center switch. Barnes finally woke up in the 2nd quarter

Draymond draws yet another foul (Lillard) on a post up. He keeps drawing fouls with seemingly no post move.

Heat survive Lowry's epic shot, win in OT

Kyle Lowry forced five extra minutes with a heave at the buzzer, but Dwyane Wade took over from there, scoring seven points in OT to help the Heat to a 102-96 win over the Raptors in Game 1.
