Steve Kerr Ejected In Loss To Trail Blazers After Arguing Foul Call

Damian Lillard scored 29 points and the Blazers snapped Golden State's five-game winning streak with a 129-107 win on Wednesday night.

With seven minutes remaining in the game it still looked like it was going to go down to the wire - the Portland Trail Blazers led the Golden State Warriors 104-101 and teams were trading buckets and stops.

Jake Layman sparked the Blazers' fourth quarter run with 12 points on two made threes.

That's when Draymond Green came gliding over from the help side, went up to contest a Zach Collins drive and delivered a hard foul, but, in the Warriors' estimation postgame, a clean one. In response to that ruling, Kerr flipped out, smashing his clipboard and looking like he wanted to fight an official.

Cousins will be joined on the sideline in Portland by veteran guard Shaun Livingston, who is getting his first pure rest night of the season.

US crude oil production remained at a record of 11.9 million barrels per day (bpd). Analysts polled by Reuters forecast an increase of 2.7 million barrels.

He was immediately hit with two technical fouls and ejected. Kerr said before the game that Cousins and Livingston got the night off because of the back-to-back games, and Iguodala was additionally a "little banged up".

The Blazers signed Kanter as a restricted free agent to a four-year, $70 million offer sheet in 2015. Kanter will back up starter Jusuf Nurkic. He received a standing ovation when he entered the game late in the first quarter.

It was the last game before the All-Star break for both teams.

Blazers: In addition to Kanter, Portland strengthened its bench prior to the trade deadline with the addition of Rodney Hood. He's averaging 6.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 18.1 minutes as a backup.
