Irving was among five players to make double figures as Boston drew first blood in the best-of-seven series opener at the TD Garden.

Westbrook appeared to hurt his right ankle in the final quarter and grimaced while trying to walk it off. Trainers attended to him on the bench at the next timeout but he returned and his layup closed the gap to 91-87 with just under 4 minutes left.

"I don't think it was really anything we did", Blazers guard Damian Lillard said. Adams led the way with 13 points in the first half, Westbrook added 10-8-7, and the Thunder were within striking distance despite George's 9 points on 3-of-14 from the field. Westbrook led the way for OKC, finishing with 24 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists on 8-of-17 shooting. Terrance Ferguson and McCollum had a heated exchange in the second quarter, earning technical fouls. Portland went on to lead the opening quarter by as many as 17 points, paced by Lillard with 12 points.

"We'll try and get the same looks that we got tonight".

Coming into this regular season, the Blazers had a lot of question marks. A year ago as a No. 3 seed Portland got swept by the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Blazers will not have center Jusuk Nurkic, who suffered a broken leg on a gruesome play in late March and missed the last nine games of the season and will be out for the entire playoffs. "Obviously, his rebounding and scoring".
