Warriors' Kerr out for Game 3 vs Blazers with illness

That wasn't a typo, and more on that later. "So we weren't disciplined enough to close out and win the game". It was understandable under the circumstances.

Noah Vonleh's dunk got Portland within four at 110-106 with 1:29 left, but Curry answered with a 3-pointer that all but sealed it, sending fans streaming for the exits.

Matt Barnes (right ankle/foot sprain) and Shaun Livingston (right index finger sprain and hand contusion) also were out for Golden State. Rookie Patrick McCaw earned his first playoff start in place of Durant and had nine points and five rebounds.

It was mentioned that the Warriors can win without Durant, but this unlikely means he is not needed.

"I don't think it's ever been done, coming back from 3-0, especially against a team like Golden State", Lillard said afterward. Mohr proceeded to miss all three of his free throw attempts. They trailed by 16 with 6:08 left in the third quarter when McGee entered and played the role of basketball defibrillator. When he's on, he changes the game. It didn't matter that the Blazers' supporting cast was much better in the second game compared to the first. Over the 105 minutes of this series when McGee has been on the bench, Portland has outscored Golden State by four points. With Golden State trailing, Brown said general manager Bob Myers approached him at halftime and jokingly threatened to replace him with assistant Ron Adams. "I got on the court today".

"Our offense got scattered, we were rushing everything". But that didn't stop the former NBA MVP from losing his mind (just like the rest of us) in the middle of the Warriors' run. How concerned should we be about Kerr's health? A 19-1 run in the third quarter brought the Warriors back. Klay Thompson broke out of a shooting funk to put up 24 points on 8-of-21 shooting from the field and 4-of-9 shooting from three in over 40 minutes.

BUCKS 104, RAPTORS 77 Khris Middleton scored 20 points and host Milwaukee overwhelmed cold-shooting Toronto to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series. Our offense kind of stagnated a little bit, they pushed it out in transition as well as they have so far in this series. In truth, it was more of a team effort than that. Yeah, every game matters but at the same time we're looking far into the future where we're playing for another two months. "It's a seven-game and we've still got more games to play, so I've still got time to pick it up".

Nonetheless, Durant is hopeful that he will be able to play in Game 3. Still, the contributions of otherwise uncounted-upon players are notable. Curry joined Barry as the only Warriors with 100 steals in the playoffs.
