NBA Notebook: Blazers head home for Game 3, down 2-0 to Golden State

Damian Lillard says Golden State did its job and protected home court. Now it's time for the Trail Blazers to do the same.
The Western Conference finals between the upstart Blazers and the defending champion Warriors shifts to Portland on Saturday with Golden State holding a 2-0 advantage.
The Blazers were up 15 points at the half and led by eight with 4½ minutes left before the Warriors rallied — boosted by Kevon Looney's dunk with less than a minute left, and a game-sealing steal from Andre Iguodala — for a 114-111 victory in Game 2 on Thursday night.
Golden State capped the game with a 14-3 run to avoid falling into a tie in the best-of-seven series.
"Lost the game, but you know, their job was to take care of their home floor, and we've got an opportunity to do the same thing," Lillard said.
