Damian Lillard's 44 points lead Trail Blazers past Warriors

Draymond Green of Golden State has a word with NBA official Leon Wood who will be working the game on Wednesday at Moda Center between the Warriors and Trail Blazers

Golden State outscored the Blazers by seven points over the final 36 minutes.

Durant finished the game with 50 points exactly, his first time scoring 50 points in Golden State and the fifth time in his career. Defensively, the Warriors are yielding 107.5 points per game against the opposing teams. Durant had only produced a combined 27 points over his prior two outings, so Wednesday's outburst was both a welcome sight and somewhat unexpected despite his vast talent.

In the video above, Lillard discusses Portland's win, his hot play of late, and the Blazers' outlook after the All-Star break.

Here are full highlights from Lillard's 44 points. The perennial All-Star's 50-point effort was the fifth of his career and first this season, and it came in his first game with more than 20 shot attempts since December 18.

The Golden State Warriors (44-13) have won their last three games including a 129-83 victory over the Phoenix Suns in which Stephen Curry scored 22 points in 8 of 17 shooting from the field and 3 of 3 from the free throw line. On Wednesday, his final line was recorded like this: 44 points, 14-of-25 shooting, 4-of-11 on threes, eight assists, four turnovers.
