The Thunder lost the first two games of the series on the road and looked like a completely different team when they played on Oklahoma City on Friday.
Their 15 three-pointers on the night tied their record for three-pointers made in a playoff game, since they moved to Oklahoma City. Schroder said he saw Lillard do it in the first two games and was just returning the favor. Westbrook backed down Lillard, hit a bank shot and was fouled.
It was more than acceptable in Game 3.
Thunder radio play-by-play announcer Matt Pinto says he expects the Thunder to do a better job at throwing bodies at Lillard and McCollum and he believes this series could take a turn in OKC.

After about 10 minutes other staff members were able to lure the tiger into an indoor pen using its food ration, Mr Wiley said. The site reports that Shawnee County Dispatch were called just after 9.30am local time following reports of a tiger attack.
Whether Lillard was inspired or not, he scored 23 points the rest of the quarter to help cut Oklahoma City's lead to 86-82 at the end of the period.

Lillard couldn't buy a bucket, going 2-for-6 from the field and 0-for-3 from long range for a total of just four points as his team went into the half down 10 points.

George threw down a monster dunk right after time expired that didn't count.
When asked about the dunk, George reiterated Westbrook's last answer in a tense news conference by saying: "Next question". "The game had been decided".
While Westbrook took on more of the scoring load in Game 3, with 33 points after scoring 38 points combined in the series' first two games, he also did plenty of facilitating.
They set the tone early, going 5-of-8 from three in the first quarter, stretching the Blazers defence as five different players all connected from deep. With Paul George battling a shoulder injury, the team has not played anywhere near the level they had previously in the year. If people are not guarding you, you're left wide open, you're going to have to keep the defense honest ...
