Warriors move on with a sweep of the Trail Blazers

26 April, 2017, 09:16 | Author: Ruben Patrick

Last season, Golden State defeated Portland 4-1 in the second round. Here is how it all went down.

Let's begin with the obvious highlight: Norman Powell. By that point, Golden State had a 72-48 lead, and all that was left was to wait until the season ended - and to feel Kourtney Kardashian's pain (or shame). It was an awe inspiring performance.

"It's weird when you don't have your head coach", Curry said. "And they're feeding off that". We weren't sure anyone was able to dunk on Giannis, but Ibaka did it. "He told us this morning this is a situation where we need to rally and go out and win a game for him". The Cavaliers are waiting on the victor of this series. With things getting worse, I decided I couldn't coach. But the Wizards had a chance to take a commanding lead and they could not do it.

Steph Curry celebrates the Warriors' sweep of the Blazers following a 123-109 Game 4 rout. It was a total team effort and a complete game. It seemed like he could have played, but the team wanted to be extra cautious. All of Golden State's starters were in double figures.

Portland managed to get the deficit under 20 a couple of times in the second and third quarters, thanks mostly to the play of Damian Lillard and Al-Farouq Aminu, though that would be about the only highlight, if one could call it that, for the home team. Dennis Schröder (18 points), Kent Bazemore (16 points, seven assists) and Tim Hardaway Jr. Howard also had 15 boards.

You know what they say. The pursuit of the title has gotten off to a great start. I felt like we showed our true colors by the way we fought.

It was the most points ever in a quarter for Golden State in a playoff game, and matched the National Basketball Association record for most first-quarter points in a playoff game. In the 1st quarter, they hit 8/10 three-pointers as Curry led all scorers with 12 points.

The Warriors jumped out to a 14-0 lead at the start. If they did not produce a win in Game 4 and every following game, their season would be over. That will either be the Toronto Raptors or Milwaukee Bucks, with both of those teams taking the court on Monday night for a pivotal Game 5 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

Durant finished with 10 points in just under 21 minutes. In other news, Stephen Curry had 37 points and went 7-of-11 from the three-point line. From there, the Warriors had no brakes, they were unstoppable.
