After three quarters, the Trail Blazers trail the Warriors 93-73. It's been a woeful afternoon for both Damian Lillard (3-for-17 from the field, 12 points) and CJ McCollum (2-for-10 from the field, six points). Among the many other areas of concern for Portland: They've been unable to get to the line and they continue to get dominated on the glass by Golden State.

Apparently the first set of double technicals wasn't enough to defuse the fracas between Anderson Varejao and Gerald Henderson. The pair are whistled for a fresh set of techs just before the end of the third quarter and were summarily tossed from the game.

Kevin Arnovitz ESPN Staff Writer 

Anderson Varejao and Gerald Henderson exchange words after the play after Henderson trips over Varejao's leg. Players on the floor instantly tilt their heads up to see replay on big screen. None follows, but they continue to check back, peering upwards. Double technical fouls are ultimately assessed to Varejao and Henderson.

Warriors were 12/17 at the rim, Blazers were 11/24. GSW's better rim protection is mattering

Lillard and McCollum are a combined 3-of-18

Portland made up some ground in the second quarter, and trails Golden State 65-51 at halftime. After a chilly first quarter, the Trail Blazers have started to hit a few shots. Ed Davis chipped in six points in the quarter as a presence down low, while Allen Crabbe (nine points) and Mo Harkless (seven points) have been bright spots. Portland's dynamic backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum continue to struggle from the field. They're a combined 3-for-19 for 14 points. Golden State is also abusing Portland on the offensive glass -- they've recovered 11 of their 25 missed field goal attempts.

65-51 Warriors at the half. Klay and Draymond have been fantastic. GSW gave up some of the lead with a Speights-Rush-Clark lineup in the 2nd

Portland was having success targeting Bogut in pick and rolls for Lillard. That advantage goes away when Draymond Green is at center

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

Despite his size, Damian Lillard probably defends the post better than anywhere else. He's done a nice job of contesting Shaun Livingston's trademark turnarounds.

Kevin Arnovitz ESPN Staff Writer 

Setting aside skill, one problem the Trail Blazers have already encountered: They're a smaller team than Golden State by a good margin. We are seeing it on the glass and, for instance, when Draymond Green bullies CJ McCollum in the post.
