Lillard separated ribs in Game 2 against the Warriors

Lillard separated ribs in Game 2 against the Warriors

There's been plenty of discussion about whether or not they're better without K.D., but at the very least they play a far more exciting style, Durant's absence forces Kerr to make Steph Curry the primary option on offense, and they run all sorts of pick-and-roll actions instead of iso-ball.

Lillard played with padding on his left side during in the Game 3 loss, when he scored 19 points on 5-of-18 shooting. The over is 3-1-1 in Warriors last 5 road games. It's there but it's not something that's affecting anything that I'm doing. "I understand who he is as a person to the core, so it's an unfortunate situation and injury to have to fight through, but he's a strong person, and understanding what's at stake, we're in the Playoffs right now, so there's no excuses and there's no way I feel like he can sit out of a game or anything of that nature". "They can really score the ball". He did not take any painkillers because he said they "mess with your stomach after the game". Golden State is 12-6 in Game 4s since the 2015 playoffs.

Asked about that after the game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr listed a hockey injury - lower leg soreness - and said an MRI was coming. "He was just destroying every in his path".

Golden State has a chance to toss a wet blanket over the Blazers in Game 4. However, Lillard downplayed the impact of the injury on his performance in the series, which Portland trails 3-0.

The Blazers suffered another gut-wrenching defeat in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series, falling 110-99 to the Warriors Saturday night at the Moda Center.

Lillard was hurt in the third quarter Thursday when Golden State's Kevon Looney landed on top of him in a scramble for the ball. He's a first-team All-NBA player this year, and other guys have to be willing to screen. Portland had a 125.7 offensive rating in the first half thanks to that shooting, plus grabbing the offensive rebound on 34.8 percent of their missed shots.

Lillard credited the Warriors' defense for making it hard for him to get in any rhythm as a scorer.

All that had the Trail Blazers up 13 at the half.

Also like Game 2, the tables would turn in favor of the Warriors in the second half. The Warriors were not fazed. "We had unbelievable contributions off the bench, every single guy came in and made an impact". Stephen Curry added 36 points and six assists and is averaging 36.3 points per game in the series. Still, Green continues to prove why he is so important to the Warriors success.

Draymond Green has been credited as being the heart and soul of the Golden State Warriors.

CJ McCollum led the Trail Blazers with 20 points.
