Trail Blazers' cohesiveness helped them to conference finals

Trail Blazers' cohesiveness helped them to conference finals

The Trail Blazers are rewarding Terry Stotts for his team's deep run in the playoffs this season.

. Two seasons ago, they were swept in the first round by the Warriors, who went on to win the National Basketball Association championship.

"We had to fight and scrap", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after Golden State clinched its fifth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.

"It hasn't been done for a reason". If Durant stays with the Warriors and Nurkic regains his previous level of play come this time next year, perhaps we'll get the chance to find out how for sure if Lillard's bravado is well-founded.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks lead the Toronto Raptors 2-1 in the East Finals, with Game 4 set for Tuesday night at Scotiabank Arena.

Fittingly, Curry and Green combined on the game-winning basket in overtime, Curry feeding Green for a three-pointer that pushed Golden State to a 119-115 lead with 39.6 seconds left in overtime.

"Our goal is obviously to get all three of those guys back", Green said.

Trump jokes that he'll serve 5 terms at Pennsylvania rally
A source close to the campaign called Trump's position in those states "troublesome". "And then we'll drive them insane ". But Trump's polarizing presidency has given hope to a host of Democratic contenders that he can be denied a second term.


"But they were swarming them". "But it goes beyond just wins and losses. When I shot it, it felt good".

By and large, the Blazers considered the results of the series to be more of a testament to Golden State's greatness than an exposure of Portland's flaws.

With veteran Andre Iguodala having joined superstar Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins on the injured list, the Warriors produced a total team effort to rally again.

Meyers Leonard, Portland's starting centre, scored a career-high 30 points, while Lillard finished with 28 points and 12 assists.

CJ McCollum added 26 for them.
