Unfortunately, the fans in Portland weren’t cheering for long. The Warriors eventually made another furious comeback in the third quarter after trailing by 13 points at the half. The defending champs poured it on in the fourth quarter to complete the 110-99 come-from-behind Game 3 victory to put a stranglehold on this series.
Stephen Curry finished with 36 points on 11-of-26 shooting from the field and made six triples on the night. Seth, on the other hand, scored just five points on 2-of-6 shooting in 30 minutes off the bench.
Seth Curry has held his own with Stephen Curry so far in this series. He scored 16 points in Game 2, as opposed to Steph’s 37, and even made a key 3-pointer down the stretch to give Portland the lead with a minute to go on Thursday night.
Portland couldn’t pull out the win in Game 2 and wasted an opportunity to defeat the defending champs in Oakland. The Blazers couldn’t finish what they started in Game 3, either. Now, the third-seeded Blazers find themselves in a massive series hole.
Golden State put the clamps on the Blazers in the second half, holding them to just 33 points in the final 24 minutes of action. The Warriors, on the other hand, poured on 57 points in the second half. Golden State is now one win away from making a fifth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals.
