GREEN & THOMPSON LEAD WARRIORS TO EMPHATIC GAME 1 WIN

No Steph Curry? No worries for the Warriors.

Draymond Green posted his second career post-season triple-double and Klay Thompson went on a scoring spree as Golden State cruised to a 118-106 victory over Portland in Game 1 of the Western Conference semis.

Green tallied 23 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in a virtuoso display, while Thompson dropped 37 points on an outclassed Trail Blazers outfit.

“I just told the guys that we got to come out with a defensive mindset and that’s pretty much it,” Green said post-match.

“I think we can pretty much just stay solid and get good stuff on the offensive end, but against this team, we just got to come out with a defensive mindset when Steph’s not out there.”
