Warriors too strong for the Trail Blazers
Golden State Warriors moved back to within 3.5 games of Los Angeles Clippers in the Pacific Division on Sunday after a 15-point victory against Portland Trail Blazers.
Stephen Curry led the way with 38 points and David Lee and Andre Iguodala each had double-doubles as the Warriors not only won, but held the visitors to their lowest-points total of the campaign.
Wesley Matthews had 21 points for Portland, who shot just 33% from the floor - including a 2-of-14 performance from LaMarcus Aldridge in a potential preview of a Western Conference first round playoff match up.
Both sides rest up on Monday before the Warriors continue their home stand with the visit of Washington Wizards and the Trail Blazers return to the Rose Garden to welcome in the Memphis Grizzlies.
On Monday, the Clippers conclude their seven-game Eastern Conference swing in Milwaukee when they play the Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Los Angeles are currently priced 1/6 on the money line and Milwaukee are available to back at 9/2.
It's been a successful road trip for the Pacific Division leaders who have defeated New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors while only falling to Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Bobcats.
Only the latter could be considered something of a surprise and LA continue to win despite the absence of Chris Paul. The Clippers star remains sidelined with a shoulder injury with the expectation that he might return to the court in time for the All-Star game in the middle of February.
