Warriors hunt Trail Blazers sweep

PORTLAND, Oregon (AP):

Stephen Curry scored 34 points - including a 3-pointer with just about a minute left that all but sealed the victory - and the Golden State Warriors overcame a slow start to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 119-113 and take a 3-0 lead in their first-round play-off series.

Playing without both Kevin Durant and coach Steve Kerr, the Warriors came back Saturday night from a first-half 17-point deficit. Golden State can clinch the series with a win tonight in Game 4 at the Moda Center.

Napoli held at Sassuolo

MILAN (AP):

Arkadiusz Milik scored his first goal since his lengthy injury layoff, but it wasn't enough to prevent Napoli from drawing 2-2 at Sassuolo yesterday and missing the chance to move second in Serie A.

Milik scored three minutes after coming off the bench to rescue a point for Napoli and move them to within one-point of second-placed Roma, which visit bottom club Pescara today.

Second spot in Serie A secures automatic entry into the Champions League group stage, while the team that finishes third has to go through a play-off.
