OAKLAND, Calif. – With seconds remaining in Game 2 between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Golden State Warriors, Damian Lillard had a chance to tie the game up.

Unfortunately for the Blazers and Lillard, his shot was blocked and then stripped by Golden State’s Andre Iguodala and the Warriors held on to win, 114-111.

In the game, Lillard finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds as the Blazers fell into a 0-2 hole in the Western Conference Finals.

Lillard started the game slow, going scoreless in the first quarter. He picked it up in the second with 10 points, but was never as effective in Game 2 as he had been throughout the playoffs. The Blazers ended up blowing what was at one point a 17-point lead.

Playing without Kevin Durant, the Warriors were led by 37 points by Stephen Curry and 24 points by Klay Thompson.

Game 3 in Portland will tip off on Saturday at 7 p.m. and be broadcast on ESPN.
