On the ensuing possession, Collins drew an offensive foul on Klay Thompson, after which both players had to be separated and assessed technical fouls.
Finally, Collins really helped the Blazers secure the win when he drew a flagrant foul call on a frustrated Draymond Green. Kerr reacted angrily, throwing his clipboard to court and yelling at the officials before he was ejected. Jake Layman added 17 points off the bench for the Blazers, who rebounded after a two-game skid.
Extra heart and smarts could go a long way toward Collins reclaiming some of the playing time he's lost over the last month of the season, though the competition for minutes is about to get even stiffer with the addition of center Enes Kanter, who the Blazers signed Wednesday after he was bought out by the Knicks. Coach Kerr said Bell should come off the bench and bring the energy they will need in a second night of a back-to-back. The New York Knicks, who made a decision to focus on younger players, were unable to deal Kanter before the trade deadline and waived him instead. DeMarcus Cousins, Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston all left the Warriors depleted of some reinforcements which would have been greatly appreciated tonight. The Warriors finished with just 12 points in the final quarter.
Seth hit a series of clutch shots late in the fourth quarter as the Trail Blazers closed out the game. "He's got his OR shoes on tonight, representing the Ducks".
