Stephen Curry scored 37 points as the Golden State Warriors fought back to defeat the Portland Trail Blazers 114-111 and take a 2-0 lead in their NBA Western Conference finals series Thursday.

Iguodala aggressively pursued Lillard during the final possession, giving him little room to breathe. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told the media after the Warriors game two victory Durant will be looked at again in a week.

"I had to catch myself a couple of times because I do want to go over and have a little small talk or whatever, but you've got to stay locked in".

"For me, as the offensive player, I felt like it was contact".

Through 26 games, ESPN is averaging a 3.5 metered market rating, up three percent from 2018 and up five percent from 2017.

Or even this from Warriors head coach Steve Kerr: "He's been the best player in the National Basketball Association in the playoffs". To a man, each player and coach in the organization has expressed the need to get Durant back, despite winning three straight playoff games without him. Green also had a brilliant all-around game for Golden State, contributing 16 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and five blocks in the win.

The Salt Lake Bees didn't get to play their scheduled game against the Las Vegas Aviators at Smith's Ballpark on Thursday night because of rain, but the weather didn't stop a special reunion from happening.

We'll never know if Golden State would have won those last two titles without No. 35. It has raised questions about Durant's true value and whether or not Golden State is a better, more unsafe team without him.

While that doesn't mean they're better without him, playing without Durant is the reality the Warriors are facing for the time being. "(Warriors director of sports medicine and performance) Rick [Celebrini] and his staff are in there all day, and hopefully he'll be back at some point, but we'll just wait and see".

Golden State center DeMarcus Cousins suffered a torn quad in Game 2 of the Warriors' opening-round playoff series against the Clippers, and is "unlikely" to return this season.
