This was the second game in a row in which the Warriors did not have Kevin Durant playing at all and this game was much closer than the second meeting.  McCollum had another big game scoring 32 points for the Trail Blazers while Curry had 34 points for the Warriors.  The jump shots were not falling for the Warriors at all during this game and one begins to wonder how far they can make it should Kevin Durant be out permanently at some point. It should also be noted that Steve Kerr will probably not be returning to the coaching bench for the rest of the playoffs.  This will be very difficult should the Warriors make the NBA Finals.
