    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Second consecutive solid effort

    Maurice Harkless registered 12 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 23 minutes during the Portland Trail Blazers' 114-111 loss to the Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals Thursday.Harkless has opened the conference finals with consecutive double-digit scoring efforts, only the second time he's accomplished the feat this postseason. The veteran wing has gotten it done with 57.7 percent shooting, a level of efficiency that he didn't come close to matching over the first two playoff series despite some serviceable performances. Harkless will look to keep the hot hand going in Saturday's critical Game 3 on his home floor of Moda Center.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Strong performance in Game 1 loss

    Maurice Harkless tallied 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three blocks, one assist, and one steal in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 116-94 loss to Golden State.Harkless finished as the only player on the Portland Trail Blazers team to shoot in excess of 50 percent, ending with 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting. It was a nice night for Harkless who also chipped in with a combined four steals and blocks, all in just 30 minutes. Despite his strong numbers, the result serves as an ominous warning given the Warriors were without Kevin Durant (calf) who could return at some stage in the next week.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Thrives in Game 3 win

    Maurice Harkless (ankle) managed 15 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 45 minutes during the Portland Trail Blazers' 140-137 quadruple-overtime win over the Nuggets in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal-round series Friday.Harkless powered through his ankle issues to turn in a strong all-around effort. It was the veteran's second 15-point, 10-rebound double-double of the postseason, as he'd also accomplished the feat against the Thunder in Game 4 of the first-round series. Despite the surge Friday, Harkless had logged just 13 minutes in Game 2, so it will be hard to gauge whether he'll be able to replicate his success in Game 4.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Inefficient showing in Game 3 loss

    Maurice Harkless totaled seven points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 34 minutes during the Portland Trail Blazers' 120-108 loss to the Thunder in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday.Harkless enjoyed a somewhat rare offensive surge in Game 2, draining six of nine shots on his way to a 14-point effort. However, he was back in the single digits in the scoring column Friday, and he also ultimately fouled out of the contest. The veteran wing is valued primarily for his solid defense, and double-digit scoring contributions the likes of which he produced in Game 2 tend to be few and far between.
