Grizzlies try to keep Blazers at bay

Memphis' trademark brand of basketball is in effect, collecting 4 blocks and outscoring Portland 30-14 in the paint for a 13-point lead at half. But Damian Lillard's finally arrived. The 21 PPG guard is up to 14, two shy of his 2015 postseason average. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Damian Lillard 5 of 6 from field ... he was 5-21 and 5-16 from field in the other 2 games of this series. Blazers-Grizzlies on ESPN

Nick Calathes has filled in nicely for the injured Beno Udrih with seven points on 3-of-4 shooting.

If you like free throws...

... then this is the quarter for you. An Arron Afflalo foul on Jeff Green put Portland into the penalty -- a place Memphis was just minutes into the second. The Grizzlies are on an 11-4 run and have a 12-point lead midway through the period. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Memphis spent a large part of the quarter building a 22-11 lead, but an 8-2 run by Portland in final 1:39 brought the Blazers within 5 heading to the second quarter. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Portland coach Terry Stotts during a recent time out: "Good stops, good looks, good tempo. Everything's how we need it." Despite that assessment, the Blazers are down by 9 late in the 1st quarter. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

And Grizz go up double-figures, 18-7, with 4:07 in 1Q. Blazers crowd seems a little restless. They’ve seen this before (Games 1 & 2).

Grizzlies grinding early

Courtney Lee is off to a quick start, going 3-for-3 from the field for a quick 7 points to help Memphis off to an 13-5 lead midway through the 1st quarter. Mike Conley is trooping through a sprained right foot by wearing a half-size larger shoe. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

The Blazers bring the series to their turf but face a 2-0 hole. Memphis has lost only once in its last 12 games against Portland. Can the Trail Blazers get their outside game going? Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Elite Warriors company

The list of players in Warriors franchise history with consecutive 35-point road games in the playoffs is short, but sweet:

  • 2015 Stephen Curry
  • 1967 Rick Barry
  • 1964 Wilt Chamberlain
  • NBA 

    Step-back Steph
    NBA 

    It may be ho-hum to Stephen Curry, but it's still boggling to see. Curry goes between the legs, jab steps and pops behind the arc for a silky trey. It was one of six that helped eliminate the Pelicans from the first round.
