Portland Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts has agreed a new multi-year contract extension in the wake of the team's National Basketball Association playoff exit to the Golden State Warriors, the team said Tuesday.
In many ways, though, the result was depressingly familiar for the Blazers, whom the Warriors eliminated from the play-offs for the third time in four seasons. Portland's problem, however, was that no lead was large enough against Golden State. In that time, Green and Steph Curry have dominated, each posting a triple-double to clinch the series against the Blazers, becoming the first duo to do so in a playoff game. The Warriors rallied from a 17-point deficit in Game 2, from 18 down in Game 3 and from another 17-point deficit in Game 4.
And while Golden State is losing out on KD's presence while he's sidelined with a calf injury, the Warriors just swept the Blazers en route to a fifth-straight NBA Finals. "This was more hard than it appeared".
