Kevin Durant Will Miss The Next 2 Playoff Games For The Warriors

Damian Lillard: 'There Was a Lot of Contact' On Final 3-Point Try

The Golden State Warriors had no issues rolling over the Portland Trail Blazers in 116-94 win in Game 1 of their Western Conference Finals. Curry finished with 37 points while going 11 of 22 from the field, 4 of 14 from 3 and 11 of 11 from the free-throw line, a performance that cemented his third consecutive 30-point game.

Maybe the most impressive aspect of the Warriors' road success under Kerr: In the 18 total playoff series Golden State has played in since 2014-15, the Warriors have won and covered at least one road game in every series.

"We stole that game", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said afterward.

Lillard led the Blazers with 23 points.

The Salt Lake Bees didn't get to play their scheduled game against the Las Vegas Aviators at Smith's Ballpark on Thursday night because of rain, but the weather didn't stop a special reunion from happening.

"He's been the best player in the National Basketball Association in the playoffs", Kerr said. With Kevin Durant sidelined, Draymond Green stepped up again in Game 1 with 12 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. "We're going to hold the fort down until he gets back and go win another championship with our full squad". While speaking to The Athletic's Sam Amick, Seth Curry of the Blazers spoke about the Durant-less Warriors and had some very interesting comments.

"We confident we can win, but we would much rather have him playing", guard Stephen Curry told reporters after Game 2. "They made plays in the last three minutes and we didn't".

Since KD suffered his injury, Curry has been averaging 34.5 points per game and has hit 13-of-26 attempts from beyond the arc. I didn't shoot the ball well for 4 1/2 games the last series and got off to a good start tonight.

Andre Iguodala sealed Golden State's come-from-behind victory in Game 2 by stripping Damian Lillard as the Blazers guard went up for a potential game-tying shot in the final seconds. "Hopefully he'll be back at some point, but we'll just wait and see". This is our third game, three and a half games really, without him.
