The Golden State Warriors snapped the Portland Trail Blazers' four-game winning streak Friday.
Point guards Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard went head-to-head in the game, with Lillard, the leading Rookie of the Year candidate, scoring 37 points on 15-of-25 shooting and Curry recording 22 points and 12 assists.
The Warriors led by double figures much of the game, taking a 15-point lead into the fourth quarter before the Trail Blazers mounted a late run. The Blazers outscored Golden State, 34-25, in the fourth quarter. A three-pointer by Lillard cut the lead to three points with 17 seconds left, but that's as close as Portland would get.
