3rd Quarter Report

The last time the Warriors and the Trail Blazers met, the contest was decided by 20 points, but it sure doesn't look like the final score will be so lopsided this time. Sitting on a score of 75-74, the Warriors have looked like the better team, but there's still one more quarter to play.

If the Warriors keep playing like this, they'll bump their record up to 45-35 in no time. On the other hand, the Trail Blazers will have to make due with a 21-59 record unless they turn things around (and fast).
