Golden State’s Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green combined for 35 points in the opening half, but Portland was able to build a lead as large as 18 in the first two quarters and took a 13-point lead at halftime.

At the half, the Blazers were shooting 48.8 percent from the field while the Warriors were converting at a 41.3 percent clip.

Another Utah college local, Andrew Bogut, got in the game, but he had zero points in two minutes for the Warriors.

Going into Saturday’s Game 3 in Portland, the Warriors held a 2-0 series lead.

The game is being broadcast on ESPN.
