Damian Lillard is not known as a great defender — something he even acknowledged himself after Game 1 — but is locking in on Russell Westbrook in Game 2. He's battling Westbrook's post-ups and not letting him get anything easy.

We're tied at 54 after a disjointed, frustrating first half in Portland that featured 29 fouls and 27 free throws. Nonetheless, the stars have shined: Paul George, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum all have 16 points. The Blazers have controlled the game with both starting lineups on the court but struggled to score with Lillard on the bench to start the second quarter.

Paul George gets a 3 to drop that answered a tough 3 by Damian Lillard and George trots back on defense doing a shoulder shrug kind of thing.

Paul George's two jumpers (that actually made it all the way to the basket; his first was blocked) have looked very pretty. All net on both.

Steven Adams asked if there's time during a playoff series to get together and hang out with Enes: "Yeah, there is. But I don't wanna."

Kanter proves critical as Blazers end losing streak

Enes Kanter's 20 points and career-postseason-high 18 rebounds were key to Portland's 104-99 win over OKC in the series opener, which snapped a 10-game Blazers playoff losing streak that dated to 2016.
