    Portland, OR (SportsNetwork. Bradley McDougald Jersey .com) - Klay Thompson is quickly proving he is worth every penny of his recently signed four-year contract extension. Thompsons runner in the lane with 8.7 seconds left gave the Golden State Warriors the lead for good in a 95-90 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Thompson, who signed a max extension worth a projected $70 million on Friday, scored a career-high 41 points in Saturdays win over the Los Angeles Lakers, then kept the momentum going with his clutch bucket on Sunday, which gave him 29 points. LaMarcus Aldridge scored the final 10 points for Portland, the last two on a jumper that gave the hosts a 90-88 lead with 2:01 remaining. Andre Iguodala split a pair of free throws with 26.3 seconds left before the Warriors forced a turnover of Wesley Matthews. Matthews grabbed the inbounds pass and a pair of Warrior defenders swarmed him. He lost the ball and it rolled out of bounds, with the officials awarding possession to the Blazers. But after a replay review, the call was overturned. We anticipated them trapping, Blazers coach Terry Stotts said of the play. I dont know if they fouled (Matthews) or not. Coming out of timeout, Thompson ran the baseline, rolled up the block, received a crisp pass from Iguodala and converted the running jumper that essentially won it for the visitors. Portland then got sloppy and turned it over two more times in the closing seconds and Stephen Curry sealed it at the line with four free throws. Curry supplied 21 points with six assists for the Warriors, who are 3-0 for the first time since beginning the 1994-95 season with five straight wins. Leandro Barbosa came off the Golden State bench to score 13 points and Andrew Bogut added 11 points and 12 rebounds. Aldridge scored 26 points with 13 rebounds and Robin Lopez added 12 points and 10 boards for Portland, which dropped its second straight contest. Damian Lillard managed just 11 points on 4-of-18 shooting in the setback. Well it certainly is a disappointing loss, said Stotts. It was a good basketball game. I was disappointed that we lost the game. Thompson picked up right where he left off on Saturday by scoring 15 points in the first quarter to help the Warriors to a 30-22 lead after 12 minutes. Matthews scored nine of his 18 points in the second period to help the Blazers trim the deficit to 51-48 at the break. Will Bartons high-arching jumper gave Portland its first lead since the opening minute with just over a minute left in the third. However, Festus Ezeli answered with a jumper and the teams entered the final quarter tied at 68-68. Game Notes The Warriors finished 26-56 in 1994-95 ...

Even if he is shooting 38 per cent from the field overall this season, the Utah Jazz rookie always feels like his final shot is going in. "I still have confidence and believe I can make the big shot," Burke said. The rookie point guard scored 17 points, including a high-arcing 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds remaining, to push the Jazz past the Orlando Magic 89-88 on Saturday night. With the Jazz trailing 88-86, Gordon Hayward dribbled through the centre of the Magic defence and found Burke in the corner. The decisive basket snapped Utahs six-game losing streak and extended Orlandos skid to eight games. "I had an ugly game, turned over the ball a couple of times and felt like I really needed to make it," Burke said. Down the stretch, the game turned into a battle between Burke and Victor Oladipo, two rookies drafted in the top 10 of last summers draft. Oladipo, the second selection, scored 19 points for the Magic. He made a jumper and then added two free throws with 21 seconds to play to give Orlando an 85-82 lead. Hayward, who had 14 points, made two free throws and then assisted Derrick Favours and Burke for the game-winner, all in the final 20 seconds. "They understood the pace. Gordon made a great pass to Trey in the corner, and he made the shot. Its great to see the young guys show a lot of character. We could have fell apart there," Utah coach Tyrone Corbin said. Despite his overall inaccuracy, Burke is 15 for 26 from beyond the arc in the final five minutes of closely contested games (within five points) this season. Richard Jefferson scored 17 of his 21 points in the first quarter and Favours, Enes Kanter and Diante Garrett all scored 11 for the Jazz. Aaron Afflalo scored 19 points for the Magic. He made three free throws in the final 20 seconds but his miss with 12 seconds left opened the door for Burke. Favors knocked the inbounds pass away after Burkes shot, leaving just 0.4 seconds on the clock. The Magic inbounded to Afflalo, who missed a desperation 26-footer that may have left his hands after the buzzer sounded anyway. At times, it seemed neither team wanted to win. There was no exceptional defence on display but both squads struggled to hit open shots, neither topping 40 per cent from the field. Burke, who was taken ninth and had some battles with Oladipo in college, saved his best for last. Earl Thomas III Jersey. . He was embarrassed on a couple of Oladipos drives to the hoop earlier in the game and made only five of his 15 shots. Just as he did at Michigan as the consensus national player of the year, Burke showed hes not afraid to take the big shot with two 3-pointers in the final three minutes. "Its a shot I work on a lot, specifically in that corner, and it fell for me," Burke said. Oladipo, meanwhile, also struggled with his shot, going 5 for 14. But had a far better performance than his three points while shooting a season-worst 1 of 12 in the 86-82 loss at Orlando in this seasons first matchup on Dec. 18. "Trey made a tough shot at the end but I did a great job of contesting it. Hes been big with big shots like that for a long time," Oladipo said. "We both are going to continue to get better. Theres definitely going to be more interesting games down the road in our careers." The Magic are 4-23 against Western Conference teams, including 0-14 on the road. Jefferson made four 3-pointers and had 17 points in the first quarter to spark the Jazz to lead by as many as 14 points in the first half before the Magic cut it to 49-43 at halftime. The Jazz have won seven in a row against the Magic, one of the few teams they can consistently beat these days. Orlando came along just at the right time for the Jazz, who had dropped 11 of 12, including six straight by an average of 14.0 points. The teams ineptitude was on full display even as the game was up for grabs. During a five-minute stretch spanning the third and fourth quarters, the teams combined for 12 empty offensive possessions. Jameer Nelson rested his sore left knee for the second straight game, giving Oladipo more opportunity to play. But the Magic were absent one more playmaker when they needed to make just one more play. Notes: The Jazz honoured the franchises first playoff team, which featured scorers Adrian Dantley and Darrell Griffith, Rickey Green and shot blocker Mark Eaton. The 1983-84 squad won Utahs first division title and advanced to the Western Conference semifinals after years of futility. ... Utahs Alec Burks missed the game with a sprained left ankle. The third-year guard is averaging 13.8 points, second on the team. Cheap Jerseys Throwback Wholesale NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
