The Portland Trail Blazers, for the second game in a row, came out and punched the Golden State Warriors in the mouth.

Portland had a strong 13-point lead at the half but a typical third quarter run from the Warriors erased the Blazers' advantage and they would never recover.

Draymond Green finished with a triple-double and Stephen Curry had his fourth consecutive 30-point game while Damian Lillard's struggles continued.

Golden State did a fantastic job defending Damian Lillard in this one, as Lillard went 5-for-18 from the field with five turnovers. His struggle to get things going put his team at a significant disadvantage in trying to fend off the Warriors' comeback.

Now leading 3-0 in the series, the Trail Blazers will have to make NBA history if they're going to reach The Finals.

Draymond Green has been the best player on the floor tonight and it's not even close. He already has a triple-double of 18 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists after three quarters. Stephen Curry is up to 25 points to propel the Warriors' offence.

Halftime: Trail Blazers 66, Warriors 53

Head coach Terry Stotts' decision to start Meyers Leonard has paid off in a big way - the Blazers' centre has a team-high 13 points at the half and is making good things happen on both ends of the floor.

Stephen Curry (15 points) and Draymond Green (14 points) are doing their best to keep the Warriors close, but the Blazers supporting cast has been much better than Golden State's.

The Trail Blazers' bench is outscoring the Warriors 23-12.

Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum have been quiet with 10 and 12 points, respectively.

End of first quarter: Trail Blazers 29, Warriors 26

The Trail Blazers got out to an early 10-point lead but the Warriors cut that deficit quickly. Portland is doing a great job of attacking the rim and forcing Golden State to foul, as the Blazers have already attempted 13 free throws.

It's been a duel between the two stellar backcourts as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson both have nine points apiece but Damian Lillard (8 points) and CJ McCollum (6 points) have their team in the lead after one frame.
