12/12/2017 Pat Connaughton, Por, G-F
Pat Connaughton scored five points Monday on 2-of-4 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Connaughton grabbed one rebound and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +2 in his 23:08 on the floor. He added one block. Connaughton went 1 of 3 from behind the arc.
12/12/2017 Noah Vonleh, Por, PF
Noah Vonleh scored four points Monday on 2-of-4 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers fell to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Vonleh pulled down nine rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +10 in his 15:28 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.
12/12/2017 Jake Layman, Por, PF
Jake Layman scored eight points Monday, going 3 of 9 from the field, as the Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Layman pulled down three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +8 in his 17:12 on the floor.
12/12/2017 Jordan Bell, GS, F-C
Jordan Bell scored 11 points Monday on 5-of-6 shooting as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 111-104. Bell pulled down six rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +14 in his 25:44 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
12/12/2017 Omri Casspi, GS, F
Omri Casspi scored 11 points Monday, going 4 of 6 from the field, as the Golden State Warriors topped the Portland Trail Blazers 111-104. Casspi grabbed nine rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +2 in his 25:08 of playing time. Casspi went 1 of 1 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Casspi did a solid job starting in place of an ailing Draymond Green, who was held out with a sore shoulder but likely will be back for Thursday's matchup with Dallas. The well-traveled forward has scored in double figures in five of the eight games in which he's received at least 20 minutes, adding 5.4 rebounds in those contests. Unfortunately, regular playing time is hard to come by on this incredibly deep Warriors roster.
12/12/2017 Nick Young, GS, G-F
Nick Young scored 12 points Monday, going 5 of 8 from the field, as the Golden State Warriors topped the Portland Trail Blazers 111-104. Young grabbed two rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +11 in his 13:01 of playing time. He added one steal. Young went 2 of 2 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Young took a shot to the head sometime in the second half and was placed in concussion protocol, putting his availability for Thursday's game against Dallas in jeopardy. Omri Casspi and possibly Patrick McCaw figure to be the beneficiaries if Swaggy P does indeed miss any time.
12/12/2017 David West, GS, PF
David West scored 10 points Monday on 5-of-6 shooting as the Golden State Warriors topped the Portland Trail Blazers 111-104. West pulled down two rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 17:35 on the floor. He added four blocks and one steal.
12/12/2017 Kevin Durant, GS, F
Kevin Durant scored 28 points Monday on 11-of-21 shooting as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 111-104. Durant pulled down nine rebounds and had five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 36:15 on the floor. He added three blocks. Durant went 2 of 4 from behind the arc.

Analysis: The Warriors haven't skipped a beat in the three games Stephen Curry has missed, largely because Durant is averaging a sizzling 33 points, 10 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 3.3 blocks during that stretch. Absolutely locked in right now, the four-time scoring champion will continue to carry the load until Curry returns from his ankle injury later this month.
12/12/2017 Klay Thompson, GS, G-F
Klay Thompson scored 24 points Monday on 9-of-21 shooting as the Golden State Warriors topped the Portland Trail Blazers 111-104. Thompson pulled down three rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +5 in his 37:10 on the floor. He added one steal. Thompson went 4 of 10 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Thompson has now canned four treys or more in seven of his last 10 games while averaging 22.9 points during that stretch, but everyone already knows he's one of the world's best outside shooters. What's less noticeable is the fact he's producing a few more assists than usual lately, averaging 3.5 in six games this month.
12/12/2017 Andre Iguodala, GS, G-F
Andre Iguodala scored six points Monday on 2-of-6 shooting as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 111-104. Iguodala grabbed eight rebounds and had five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 31:44 on the floor. He added one block. Iguodala went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
12/12/2017 Zach Collins, Por, F-C
Zach Collins scored nine points Monday, going 4 of 9 from the field, as the Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Collins grabbed seven rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 25:18 of playing time before fouling out. He added three steals.

Analysis: The rookie recorded career bests in virtually every category while cracking the rotation due to Jusuf Nurkic's ankle injury. Collins also had three blocks in just 19 minutes Saturday in Houston, and he's a player to keep an eye on if Nurkic winds up missing more time.
12/12/2017 Evan Turner, Por, G-F
Evan Turner scored 10 points Monday on 3-of-8 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers fell to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Turner grabbed one rebound and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 30:21 on the floor. He added three steals.
12/12/2017 Al-Farouq Aminu, Por, F
Al-Farouq Aminu scored four points Monday, going 1 of 6 from the field, as the Portland Trail Blazers fell to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Aminu grabbed five rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 25:22 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.

Analysis: Aminu had come in hot, knocking down 10 of 16 tries from 3-point range while totaling 32 points over his previous two games. While his scoring numbers often vary, the veteran forward has shot well from beyond the arc all season long and has grabbed at least five rebounds in all five games since returning from an ankle injury.
12/12/2017 Damian Lillard, Por, PG
Damian Lillard scored 39 points Monday on 12-of-28 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Lillard grabbed four rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 41:56 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Lillard went 5 of 13 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Lillard told reporters before the game that he's dealing with some ankle soreness, but he sure didn't look limited in reaching the 30-point mark for a third straight outing and sixth time in his last nine contests. The superstar guard has now hit 14 treys in his past two games and is averaging a sensational 30.7 points, six assists and 4.7 rebounds over that nine-game tear.
12/12/2017 Meyers Leonard, Por, F-C
Meyers Leonard scored four points Monday, going 2 of 5 from the field, as the Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. Leonard pulled down four rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 18:26 of playing time.
12/12/2017 C.J. McCollum, Por, G
C.J. McCollum scored 21 points Monday on 8-of-14 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Golden State Warriors 111-104. McCollum pulled down three rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -21 in his 33:53 on the floor. He added one block. McCollum went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.

Analysis: McCollum seems to have his stroke back, as he went 11 of 21 from the field in a slump-busting 28-point effort against the Rockets on Saturday and followed up with this strong performance. Damian Lillard's running mate averaged 14.5 points on 34.2 percent shooting - including 5 of 20 from beyond the arc - in four games that preceded Saturday's breakout.
12/11/2017 Furkan Korkmaz, Phi, SG
Furkan Korkmaz scored five points Sunday on 2-of-6 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 131-124. Korkmaz grabbed three rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 19:48 of playing time. Korkmaz went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
12/11/2017 J.J. Redick, Phi, SG
Redick scored 28 points Sunday on 8-of-14 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 131-124. Redick grabbed three rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 35:19 on the floor. Redick went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Redick has heated up, averaging 20.3 points while hitting 17 of 42 from 3-point range in his last six games.
12/11/2017 Jerryd Bayless, Phi, G
Jerryd Bayless scored three points Sunday on 1-of-7 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 131-124. Bayless pulled down one rebound and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -5 in his 25:28 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Bayless went 1 of 5 from behind the arc.
