Last night, The Golden State Warriors finished off the sweep of the Portland Trailblazers with a decisive 128-103 victory in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals. Stephen Curry was on fire early and often finishing with 37 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 assists on 12-20 shooting from the field and 7-11 from the three-point line. Draymond Green played a team high 33 minutes and finished with 21 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. Kevin Durant only played 20 minutes in his return to action since Game 1 and finished with 10 points on 4-7 shooting from the field.
This game was over early and never in doubt for the Warriors. The Warriors came out blazing with Stephen Curry immediately shooting and making three’s from everywhere on the floor. The Warriors held a 45-22 lead after the first quarter of play after starting with a quick 14-0 lead. The one piece of bad news that came from this series was the serious news of head coach Steve Kerr’s health. Kerr did not coach Game’s 3 and 4 in Portland do to an illness that can be related to the back surgery he had some time ago. Since the Warriors got the job done early and swept the Blazers in the first round, this will give Kerr time to consult with doctors and see what his timetable to return is for the rest of the playoffs. The team will be playing every game with heavy hearts for their coach no matter if he is on the sidelines or if he is resting at home. The team will be awaiting the winner of the Jazz vs. Clippers series to play in the next round of the 2017 NBA playoffs. The series is currently tied at two games a piece.
