Warriors take 3-0 lead into game 4 against the Trail Blazers

Game 3 Déjà vu: Warriors slow down Lillard, come from behind to win, take 3-0 series lead

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 Golden State Warriors visit the Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference finals with a 3-0 lead in the series. The Blazers are down 3-0 in the series and no team in National Basketball Association history has lost the first three games of a playoff series and come back to win.

DURING THE PLAYOFFS: Warriors: Averaging 117.1 points, 43.7 rebounds, 28.4 assists, 7.5 steals and 6.1 blocks per game while shooting 48.9 percent from the field.

Coach Steve Kerr said Green's improved focus has been a big key for the Warriors. "He's our leader. He's our emotional leader out there, so if he can play like he did last night in terms of just moving onto the next play after something goes wrong that's a huge boost to our team".

"I think the double teams, obviously the trapping, is created to get the ball out of his hand so he doesn't have the same freedom", Blazers coach Terry Stotts said.

"But (Durant) said to me then, like, 'You're not emotional". Since suffering the injury, Lillard had made just 8 of 27 shots (29.6 percent), including 5 of 16 (31.3 percent) from three-point range. "Like Klay [Thompson] said, we've got one more game to win, and we know Damian can get hot and change an entire series". Steph Curry continued his torrid pace, Draymond Green put together one of his best playoff games ever, while Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum continued to struggle.

For the second consecutive game, Golden State dominated the third quarter to get back in the game after trailing by double digits at halftime. The Blazers, who trailed the Denver Nuggets 3-2 in the conference semifinals, are 2-0 in elimination games during the playoffs this season. Game 4 is in Portland on Monday night. He turned the ball over five times and had a game +/- of -23. He grabbed it again after making the shot and hit a layup before walking to the Portland Trail Blazers' bench.

All Western Conference finals games will air on ESPN. "Just really want to be a good example for them and show them the right things", Green said.

ESPN confirmed The Athletic's original report of the injury, but quoted a source who downplayed its significance, saying, "Not a story, he always plays through injuries".
