Warriors Vs. Blazers, Halftime Score: Turnovers Killing Warriors Again, Blazers Lead 57-54

The Golden State Warriors played host to the Portland Trailblazers Wednesday night, gunning for their fourth straight victory in a row. The Blazers entered Oracle Arena without their top scorer and rebounder LaMarcus Aldridge trying to turn it around after back-to-back losses. And after a half in which the W's shot over 56% form the field, their nine first half turnovers ensured Portland stayed close and eventually took the lead, owning a 57-54 advantage at the half.

The W's stretched out a comfortable lead that they watched whittle away towards the end of the second quarter, as Gerald Wallace leads the way for Portland with 12 points including 2-2 from downtown, while Nicolas Batum continues to shine as well, dropping 11 in the first half.

David Lee is having another solid game, scoring 17 first half points and grabbing eight boards, while Nate Robinson hit three three-pointers in his first 2:35 on the floor to spark the W's bench tonight, adding 11 points in only five minutes. Dorell Wright is 4-7 from the field for 10 points, while Monta Ellis has six points and Stephen Curry four and six assists.

The W's out rebounded the Blazers 21-19 in the half and were 6-9 from downtown, two things they'll have to continue if they want to come out on top tonight.
