Trail Blazers preparing to let it fly against the Warriors

19 in Portland.“I believe in the percentages of the three-point shot,” said Blazers coach Terry Stotts.

That game was by far the Warriors’ largest losing margin in a regular season that saw them set an NBA record for wins with 73 and just nine losses.

OAKLAND -- Whether he has been asked to provide 15-20 minutes of stability off the bench or step in for the best, flashiest basketball player on the planet, Shaun Livingston's demeanor hasn't seemed to waver.He's the same self-assured, buttoned-down, laconic Livingston. The breakdown by game was 1-2-1-1-1.Such a sustained efficient performance was Livingston personified, all performed with a stoic, decidedly unflashy stealth that almost makes him the anti-Steph.

That means Curry will have a full week of rest before the Warriors play another game.More than anything, Game 5 was a reminder of how good Thompson can be when he's on his game. The Rockets' veteran wing gave Thompson problems in Game 3 and parts of Game 4. Over the last six quarters in the series, Thompson totaled 39 points on 14 of 20 shooting.

Sports Nuggets end-of-season evaluations 2016: Darrell Arthur

Arthur shot a career-high 38.5 percent from the 3-point line.On top of all of that, Arthur averaged a career-high 21.7 minutes per game.In many respects, it was a solid season for Arthur, who made his name as a defensive-minded forward. Few players believe more in the Nuggets' future than does Darrell Arthur. But an expanded offensive game put a more well-rounded Arthur on display, and the Nuggets hope to get him back next season.
