Damian Lillard drags the Thunder right back into the contest, scoring 25 POINTS in th third quarter!

Half-time: Thunder 49, Blazers 39

The Thunder close the half on a 10-1 run to take a nine-point lead into the half.

The Blazers aren't making life easy for themselves, recording 14 turnovers in the first half and unlike Games 1 and 2, OKC are making them pay.

End of first quarter: Blazers 22, Thunder 21

The Thunder look to have shaken off their struggles from beyond the arc, knocking down 5-8 from the three-point line, with five different players getting in on the act.

Boston Celtics 104, Indiana Pacers 96

The Boston Celtics take a 3-0 series lead after a hard-fought win on the road, making it six wins from their past seven games at Bankers Life FieldHouse.

Jaylen Brown led the way with 23 points on the night, but it was Kyrie Irving who again delivered down the stretch, knocking down tough shot after tough shot to seal the W.

End of third quarter: Celtics 80, Pacers 73

It's been a problem that's plagued the Pacers in their first two games and today they struggled again, scoring just 12 points in the third quarter.

They shot just 5-of-23 from the field, but luckily for them, Boston weren't much better, shooting 7-of-24 for their 21 points.

Half-time: Pacers 61, Celtics 59

The Pacers end the second quarter on a 21-7 run to take a two-point lead at the half, after trailing by as many as 15 in the first quarter.

The second quarter belonged to Tyreke Evans! He's scored 12 of his 15 points in the period to get the Pacers right back into the game.

Evans is 5-of-7 form the field and 3-of-3 from beyond the arc.

End of first quarter: Celtics 41 Pacers 22

The Celtics just couldn't miss, shooting 66.7% from the field in the Q1.

Pre-game

Jaylen Brown knows the Celtics can't afford to lose focus in Game 3, despite holding a 2-0 lead.

Toronto Raptors 98, Orlando Magic 93

The Toronto Raptors take a 2-1 series lead after a hard-fought win on the road in Orlando.

Pascal Siakam was a force with 30 points, 11 rebounds and four assists on the night, while Kawhi Leonard added 16 points on just 5-of-19 shooting from the field.

The Raptors looked like they were in control, leading by 9 points, with 2:44 remaining, with Terrence Ross scoring eight quick points to give the Magic a chance.

End of third quarter: Raptors 76, Magic 65

Pascal Siakam led the Raptors on a 16-0 run to take control of the game. The Magic were leading 59-57 with 6:37 to play, missing their next 12 field goal attempts.

Siakam's up to 26 points on 11-for-16 shooting from the field.

The Raptors are turning up the heat on the defensive end, with a pair of big blocks from Danny Green and Serge Ibaka halting the Magic in their tracks.

Halftime: Raptors 48, Magic 45

Terrence Ross drains a shot from halfcourt to make it a one possession game heading into halftime!

Ross scored all 11 of his first-half points in the second quarter. He's now Orlando's leading scorer.

End of first quarter: Raptors 26, Magic 21

Considering the Magic trailed by as much as 11 points in the first quarter, they could be in much worse shape entering the second.

A big reason the Magic aren't down more is because of Jonathan Isaac, who did it all in the first quarter with eight points, four rebounds, two blocks and two steals.

Kawhi Leonard is off to a slow start for the Raptors - two points (1-5 FG) and three turnovers - but Pascal Siakam came out of the gates strong with 12 first-quarter points.

Pregame

Patrick McCaw, who has been sidelined since March 30 with a sprained right thumb, is back in the lineup for the Raptors.
