Blazers big man Nurkic upgraded to 'doubtful'

Blazers big man Nurkic upgraded to 'doubtful'

"I want to play", he said. He practiced with the team Friday, and he's listed as questionable.

"Look, if it was Game 7 of the Finals, (Durant) could play", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Friday.

The chance to steal a game on the road is pivotal to lower seeds-let alone being the eighth seed. Lillard and McCollum are much more likely to have a big game at home tonight in Game 3 and I think this is the game that the Blazers make their strongest push to win.

They were a huge reason the NBA-best Warriors rebounded from a short rough patch to run off a 14-game winning streak after Kevin Durant went down with a knee injury.

The statement said it is the responsibility of Afghans, not the USA , to remove the Islamic State group from the country. The US military said the bomb was used purely on tactical grounds, "the right weapon against the right target".

Federal Court Finds Lawmakers Intentionally Discriminated In Drawing Texas House Districts
Late Thursday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a statement in response to the ruling. Texas has lost three major voting rights ruling since March.

Mike Conley had 24 points and eight assists, helping the Grizzlies snap a 10-game postseason skid against the San Antonio with a victory. "A bummer. I hate being out; I hate being hurt", he said.

In his last 10 games of the regular season, he averaged almost 12 points but he missed Portland's three final regular-season games with left foot soreness after an MRI revealed inflammation. Portland has a loud and rabid fan base and the Blazers will have the crowd behind them all night long, so the Warriors better be expecting a battle.

The Warriors have a 2-0 lead in the series, which shifts to Portland on Saturday night. The teams traded leads on each of the next four baskets, but after George's 3 with 5:15 to go gave IN a 104-103 lead, James scored on a layup that started a 12-5 run to seal it. George and Lance Stephenson are the only players who have endured every one of those losses, perhaps none more painful than Thursday's. "We made it a competitive series past year because it was a team effort". It's a 48-minute game, and to win we had to come out (of halftime) with even more urgency against that team and we didn't do that. "And we need the same team effort".

James passed Kobe Bryant for No. 3 on the NBA's career playoff scoring list and tied another National Basketball Association record by winning his 20th consecutive first-round game.
