Warriors rally in fourth for 2-0 series lead on Portland
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Klay Thompson scored 27 points and gave Golden State its first lead of the game on a 3-pointer with 5:33 left, and the Warriors rallied to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 110-99 on Tuesday night for a 2-0 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series.
Draymond Green added 17 points, 14 rebounds, seven assists and four blocked shots in another win without injured MVP Stephen Curry, sidelined with a sprained MCL in his right knee.
Game 3 is Saturday in Portland, and the reigning MVP might be back for that one.
NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala's two free throws at 7:25 trimmed the Blazers' lead to 91-88 and Thompson's 3 at 6:44 tied it, igniting the sellout crowd inside deafening Oracle Arena as the defending champions erased an early 17-point deficit.
