Damian Lillard after Blazers' latest win over Warriors: 'We're the real deal'

Late in the second quarter of Golden State's loss on the road in Portland Friday, a fan sitting near courtside was ejected after exchanging pleasantries with Kevin Durant.

The Blazers kicked off the winning run with a home win over the Dubs last month and enjoyed another success over them at the Moda Center to underline their credentials. They have vaulted to third place in a competitive Western Conference.

The Trail Blazers were swept by the Warriors a year ago and lost 4-1 in the previous campaign, but they now believe they're in a much better position to compete and they want people to stand up and take notice.

She did not say what level of tariffs the European Union would set, leaving it unclear what the economic impact would be. President Donald Trump's proposed trade tariffs are "a bad call".

The Blazers won, 125-108, despite the Warriors climbing from 15 points down to take a lead in the third quarter. "They did what they always do, but we kept fighting".

After Golden State's Klay Thompson connected on a short jump shot to pull the Warriors within 92-91 early in the 4th quarter, Portland produced a 12-2 scoring run to push their lead to double-digits and the Warriors wouldn't get the deficit below 7 points the rest of the way.

Possibly a bit too high for one Blazers fan.
