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.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The NBA playoffs are 8 days old... and six different players have already dropped 40: Kawhi, LeBron, Westbrook, Harden, McCollum and Hayward. That is already tied for the most 40-pt scorers in a single round in NBA postseason history.

Impressive offensive half by the Portland Trail Blazers, whose 67 points were the third most allowed by the Golden State Warriors in a first half this season, per Basketball-Reference.com. Portland made eight of 13 3-point attempts and got a combined 39 points from guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

Evan Turner did not appreciate David West pushing him to stop a fast break. Again, a side effect of the NBA's ineffective clear-path rule.

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

Eight Blazers turnovers have prevented them from taking full advantage of their hot shooting. Up just eight despite 6-of-9 from 3 and 55.6 percent overall.
