The reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors found themselves in unusual territory after losing their past two games.

They got back in the winners circle on Sunday as they took down the Portland Trail Blazers on the road, 115-105.

The Warriors held the lead at every change, but were never able to pull away from the Blazers who ensured the game remained close at all times.

Klay Thompson had the hot hand for the Warriors as he ended with a team-high 32 points on 12-21 shooting from the field, connecting on 4-5 from beyond the arc.

Thompson had struggled from deep over the Warriors' past six games as he buried only 6-31 from downtown.
