Nate McMillan: "Since I've been here (in Indiana), LeBron (James) has been in the way of this franchise getting to the Finals." He said he appealed to Jeff Teague's pride leading up to Game 4, bringing up how James swept Teague in Atlanta and now has a chance to sweep him in Indiana too.

LeBron James has some history on the line today. With a win he will pass Tim Duncan for most playoff sweeps in a career all-time with 10. He will also pass Magic Johnson, Michael Cooper and James Worthy for most consecutive first round playoff wins with 21 (since 1984). Also, he's averaging 32.7 points, 10.7 assists and 9.7 rebounds in the playoffs against IND thus far, putting him in range to join Johnson and Jason Kidd as the only players in the last 30 years to average a triple-double in a playoff series.

Kawhi Leonard this series Game 1: 32 (ties playoff career-high) Game 2: 37 (new playoff career-high) Game 4: 43 (new playoff career-high)

Watching Kawhi last night reminds why NBA has had renaissance. Most of league's stars conduct their business right way. LBJ, KD, Steph, etc.

Warriors rally from 16 points down to beat Blazers 119-113 and take 3-0 series lead. The ViewFromVegas is they were -210 on the money line and also covered against the closing spread of -5 (though early Portland backers pushed on +6). The game went over the closing total of 218 on Steph Curry's 3-pointer with 49 seconds left.

Second-half scoring in this series: Golden State Warriors 185, Portland Trail Blazers 124.

Warriors take their biggest lead at 100-96 pending an Ian Clark free throw and suddenly the scattered Warriors fans are louder than the home crowd.

Curry, fresh off a 3, passes up another open one to swing ball to Ian Clark. Clark gets and-1, Curry more pumped than when he scored himself

ESPN Stats and Information  

How did the Warriors make this a game in the 3rd quarter? - The Warriors outscored the Blazers 14-3 in transition - 1 turnover in the 3rd is the fewest in a quarter for the Warriors this series - Klay Thompson made more 3s in the 3rd (4) than total FGM in the 1st half (3) - CJ McCollum was 4-7 fror 10 points in the 3rd... the rest of the team was 3-15 for 11 points

Big question as we head to the fourth quarter with the Blazers up one: how many minutes does Jusuf Nurkic have left? He's played 12:40.

Warriors back within four on a 10-0 run. Buckle up.
