Warriors 114, Blazers 111: Steph Curry, Klay Thompson make life great despite no Durant

So in another game in which the Warriors tried to adjust without Kevin Durant, Curry and Thompson offered something familiar both before and during their current NBA championship run.

In the Warriors’ 114-111 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, Curry and Thompson made plenty of shots.

Curry finished with 37 points while going 11-of-22 from the field, 4-of-14 from 3 and 11-of-11 from the free-throw line and a post-season high eight assists, a performance that cemented his third consecutive 30-point game.

“Klay and Steph take on a bigger responsibility scoring-wise and they look to go into games more aggressively when Kevin is out,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Then Curry set up Draymond Green for an open layup that gave the Warriors a 114-111 cushion with 12.3 seconds remaining.

“When you’re missing a guy like that that can produce 30 points, however many rebounds, and just creates so much attention, it changes the way you play a little bit but when we have those opportunities to be aggressive, we do what we do.”
