Trail Blazers, wired for sound

Portland coach Terry Stotts during a recent time out: "Good stops, good looks, good tempo. Everything's how we need it." Despite that assessment, the Blazers are down by 9 late in the 1st quarter. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

And Grizz go up double-figures, 18-7, with 4:07 in 1Q. Blazers crowd seems a little restless. They’ve seen this before (Games 1 & 2).

    Step-back Steph
    NBA 

    It may be ho-hum to Stephen Curry, but it's still boggling to see. Curry goes between the legs, jab steps and pops behind the arc for a silky trey. It was one of six that helped eliminate the Pelicans from the first round.

    Kerr was SCREAMING at Curry to move the ball on that AD iso. After Curry hit the shot, Kerr walked to the bench, laughing hysterically
