Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (0) looks up at the scoreboard during the second half against the Golden State Warriors in game three of the Western conference finals of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at Moda Center.
Lillard, an Oakland native who would like nothing better than to get one more homecoming before the Warriors move to San Francisco next season, has been outscored 109-61 by Curry in the series. Every chance the Warriors get they trap Lillard off the pick-and-roll, and even when they don't do that the Warriors show the second defender early.
"I don't think it's something that's affecting my game", he said. They have to be willing to execute, make plays and help them out and loosen up the defense. The Trail Blazers go as far as their backcourt takes them, and they're both underachieving on the big stage. And the Warriors, after struggling through a sloppy start, to gain complete control of a series that could end Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) in a sweep. The forward, who had two points and five rebounds, was not missed for the final 20 minutes of Game 3, however, thanks in large part to Green. He may not have accomplished that until these conference finals - four technical fouls serve as proof - but Game 3 was the performance Green envisioned when he set that goal for himself. "It's a remarkable group to continue to press and play at this level without so many key guys, so I'm very proud of them". "That's all that matters", Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said.
"That's huge in terms of keeping the focus on what we can control, and that's how we're playing", Stephen Curry said.
Huawei would sign ‘we promise not to spy’ pacts with governments
The order paves the way for a ban on doing business with China's Huawei, though it did not name specific countries or companies. Furthermore, concerns about Chinese law requiring Huawei to cooperate with China's intelligence agencies were simply hype.
Despite being down by almost 20 points for the second consecutive game, the Warriors battled all the way back in the second half on Saturday night to stun the Blazers and steal Game 3.
The Warriors roared back, closing within 76-75 on Alfonzo McKinnie's basket and pulling ahead on Looney's layup to cap a 10-0 run. He's a first-team All-NBA player this year, and other guys have to be willing to screen. So, we just focus on the next game ahead of us.
Bruised and battered as they might be - Enes Kanter has been dealing with a shoulder injury since the Oklahoma City series and Rodney Hood still isn't right after suffering a bone bruise in his left knee during Game 7 versus the Nuggets - the Blazer would like to postpone that summer rest for as long as possible.
He also went on to give credit to his son, noting that he realized his behavior on the court was bleeding into his child's own sportsmanship.
