For the second-consecutive game, the Portland Trail Blazers blew a double-digit halftime lead to the Golden State Warriors.

The Blazers squandered a 66-50 halftime lead to the Warriors in Game 2, and did it again on Saturday night when a 66-53 cushion evaporated midway through the third quarter.

The largest Portland lead of the night was 18 points, and fans were quick to taunt the Blazers for being unable to finish games.

“The Portland Trail Blazers and double-digit leads are the equivalent of mixing water and electricity: Only disaster can occur from it,” one user tweeted.

Other fans and media personalities highlighted the struggles of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum after the two combined to shoot 12-38 from the field Saturday night.


“Portland’s Crash Brothers were more like Trash Brothers tonight,” Fox Sports’ Skip Bayless tweeted. “Dame and CJ shot 5-19 from 3. Dame had 5 turnovers. CJ missed 5 FTs. Both missed so many key 4th-quarter shots. Just pathetic. Call off Game 4.”
