Oregon: The Golden State Warriors recorded a stunning comeback win Saturday, overturning a 17-point deficit to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 119-113.

The win brings last year's runners up to completing a sweep against the Blazers, they need one more game to do so. Franchise player Stephen Curry gave a clutch performance in the fourth-quarter, scoring 14 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter to spark the comeback. Half of Curry's point was from the three-point range, he was 5-14 from behind the arc. Curry's shooting overall was 10-25. Klay Thompson added 25 points for the Warriors. He made four three- point shots from nine attempts to fend off the Blazers' threat. Andre Iguodala scored 16 while fellow reserve JaVale McGee added 14 points as the Warriors' bench chipped in for the win. 

For Portland, Damien Lillard and CJ McCollum continued to perform superbly as they did throughout the series. However their efforts were once again not enough to get their team the win. They scored 31 and 32 points respectively.
