2017 NBA Playoffs -- Warriors pull away late, hold off Blazers (PHOTOS)

OAKLAND -- ​The visiting Portland Trail Blazers ​backcourt shot the lights out of the Oracle Arena on Sunday afternoon, but it still wasn't enough to uppend the top-seeded Golden State Warriors, who had a huge fourth quarter en route to a 121-109 Game 1 victory.

​CJ McCollum finished with 41 points while Damian Lillard added 34 as the eighth-seeded Blazers gave the Warriors all they handle, knotting the score at 88-88 entering the final frame.

In the end, however, the Warriors simply had too much firepower, closing the last 12 minutes with a 33-21 run, a blistering assault that was anchored by a Draymond Green 3 that gave the Warriors the lead for good.

McCollum put on a show early​, tallying a franchise record 27 first half points. But the Blazers shot just 43 percent of their filed goals (40-of-93) and 36.7 percent of their 3s (11-of-30) while the Warriors went 43-of-81 from the filed (53.1 percent) and 11-of-27 from long distance (40.7 percent).


A sea of yellow adorned the Oracle Arena during Game 1 of Warriors-Blazers series Sunday afternoon.


Warriors stars Steph Curry (L) and Kevin Durant answer questions during the post-game interview.

Blazers head ​coach Terry Stotts ​is hopeful that injured center Jusuf Nurkic will suit up for Game 2, but the task of beating these Warriors remain daunting. "Dame and CJ, if they get 80 points​ between them we've still got to score 50 somewhere," Stotts told reporters.

Kevin Durant ​registered ​32 points and ​10 ​rebounds ​i​n his first playoff game ​as a Warriors while ​Stephen Curry added a quiet 29 points and four assist​s​. Draymond Green was all over the place, barely missing a triple-double with 12 points, 12 rebounds, 9 assists, 5 blocks and steals.

"You've got to give them credit, they got it going. At some point you have to make them miss" Green said after the game.

Game 2 o​f this best-7 series is Wednesday ​night at the Oracle Arena (Thursday AM in Manila). ​(JSM)
