Lillard scored a career-high 51 points back in February as the Blazers inflicted the Warriors with their worst defeat of the season. However, he was kept quiet by the Dubs as he finished with 17 points at the Oracle Arena. 

It took Thompson less than a minute to hit his first bucket from deep, on his way to eight for the night as he shot a stunning 72.7 percent from range.

The Blazers' backcourt of Lillard and C.J. McCollum, who took it to the Warriors at the Moda Center, shot a combined 46.7 percent from three-point land to finish with seven from 15.

Al-Farouq Aminu, Noah Vonleh, Gerald Henderson, Allen Crabbe, Meyers Leonard, Brian Roberts and Pat Connaughton also hit threes for the Blazers.
