Okay, so blowing a 17-point lead the other night in Oakland could leave scar tissue throughout this series but it might help if coach Terry Stotts' crew played a little defense - both in the paint and on the perimeter - as Golden State's Stephen Curry poured in a game-high 37 points and the Dubs backdoored and alley-ooped the T-Blazers to death ... or weren't you watching!
