UNDATED (AP) - The Golden State Warriors have been treating NBA fans to an aerial show this season as they drain a ridiculous number of 3-pointers. They added a high-wire act last night by storming back from a nine-point deficit in the final nine minutes of a 110-99 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
Klay Thompson hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the Warriors ahead to stay. Thompson finished with five treys and scored a game-high 27 points to help the Warriors take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.
Draymond Green contributed 17 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists to the comeback win.
The Blazers jumped out to a 19-5 lead and led by 17 early in the second quarter before fading. They allowed Golden State to outscore them 34-12 in the final period.
Damian Lillard hit six 3-pointers and had a team-high 25 points for the Trail Blazers, who don't host Game 3 until Saturday.
The Miami Heat have opened their Eastern Conference semifinal series with a road win at Toronto.
Dwyane Wade scored seven of his 24 points in overtime as the Heat outlasted the Raptors 102-96. The Miami guard clinched the victory by converting a 3-point play with 1.8 seconds left, moments after Jonas Valanciunas hit a slam to get Toronto within three.
Goran Dragic had a team-high 26 points for the Heat, who have won three straight since coming within one loss of elimination.
Raptors guard Kyle Lowry forced OT by draining a 3-pointer from halfcourt to end regulation, but he finished with just seven points on 3 of 13 shooting. Valanciunas finished with 24 points and 14 rebounds for the Raptors, while DeMar DeRozan added 22 points.
Game 2 is Thursday at Toronto.
Bosh with team, not playing
TORONTO (AP) - Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh attended Game 1 of the team's Eastern Conference semifinal series in Toronto, although he remains on the inactive list.
Bosh has expressed a desire to return to action after missing the final 29 games of the regular season and Miami's first-round victory over Charlotte. The 11-time All-Star has not played since a blood clot was found in his left calf during February's All-Star break in Toronto.
