Durant optimistic of playing in Warriors' Game 3 at Portland

Galena Nuncio | 21 Abril, 2017, 21:41

Kevin Durant wasn't on the court at all, nor Shaun Livingston.

Portland Trail Blazers forward Al-Farouq Aminu, center, shoots between Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee, left, and forward Kevin Durant (35) during the first half of Game 1 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, April 16, 2017.

With Durant being out, it will give him five full days off before Game 3 on Saturday in Portland.

The two also combined for nine turnovers (Lillard with four, McCollum with five) in Game 2 after giving up seven in Game 1.

Golden State isn't a deep team, but they can play like one anyway when they're at their best. "People want to talk about the shooting in the backcourt and all that stuff, but this has been a great defensive team for a while".

Grizzlies snap playoff skid against Spurs with Game 3 win
This was just the sixth start for Randolph, who had 19 double-doubles off the bench during the regular season. "I don't know. Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs with 18 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

Portland Trail Blazers' shooting percentage as they were restricted by a smothering Golden State Warriors' defence.

"You got to be aggressive. Our guys understand that's the name of the game". I came here, I wanted to be in the playoffs and we make it. "We didn't do that".

The Blazers fate is largely dependent on the play of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. But tonight we didn't really get it going much or consistently throughout the game. The team shot 33.3 percent (30-for-90) from the field and 20.6 percent (7-for-34) from beyond the arc.

"It's just going to make me raise the level of my game because I take it as a challenge", he said.

After game one, Millsap made a point of calling out what he considered overly aggressive play from the Wizards - "They were playing MMA", he said. They got a couple of huge shots from rookie Patrick McCaw, some monster dunks from Javale McGee (so what else is new?), 13 points from Ian Clark and even quality minutes from James Michael McAdoo. Stephen Curry backed up Durant by scoring 29 points while Draymond Green had 19 points with 12 rebounds, 9 assists and 5 blocks.

District Judge Sean Cox on Friday accepted a plea agreement reached in January between the automaker and the federal government. VW eventually admitted that the cars were programmed to turn pollution controls on during testing and off while on the road.

Key To The Game: Will anyone else on the Trail Blazers step up? He is dealing with a right index finger sprain and a hand contusion after scoring just two points in 15 minutes in Game 1.

We have the Portland Trail Blazers vs Golden State Warriors. In the final frame, Portland was limited to just 23 points.

Jimmy Butler scored 22 points, Rajon Rondo finished one rebound shy of a triple-double and the visiting Chicago Bulls beat the Boston Celtics 111-97 on Tuesday night to take a 2-0 lead in their series against the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

A exhausted Westbrook just kept jacking up shots, many of them bad ones, and he shot.

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant scored 32 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in his first playoff game as a Warrior, showing no ill effects of a left knee injury he suffered in late February. "We put a lot of pressure on them, and we stayed with it". "It's twinged, you throw him out there and he pulls it and he's out for a few weeks, you feel like an idiot". But whenever Green influences the game, the Blazers just don't have an answer.

Wages see Premier League clubs post £110m loss
It was an increase of £200 million, or 9%, on the same period a year ago - and the Manchester clubs were responsible for half of this.

There's no doubt that Steph will take a sip of his own Kool-Aid before looking for a statement victory, which is what this would be for Golden State.
