He finished with 30 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals while scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter alone to assure that his team would defend home court and pick up the win.

Paul George's injury status is day-to-day due to right shoulder soreness, Thunder coach Billy Donovan said after practice Friday.

The worst shooting performance by the Oklahoma City Thunder came perhaps at the wrong time of the season with the team opening up the NBA Playoffs on Sunday.

The Blazers have endured a miserable record in the playoffs in recent years, suffering back-to-back first round sweeps in 2017 and 2018 against Golden State and New Orleans. The Thunder offense continued struggling despite the defensive resurgence, hitting just 8-of-23 from the floor in the frame. The Thunder did not make any of their six 3-point attempts, while Portland was 7 of 10.

He was backed by C.J. McCollum, who added 24 points from nine-of-24 shooting with six rebounds and three assists.

Oklahoma City beat the Blazers in all four meetings this season, including a heated 129-121 overtime victory on March 7.

Kanter was definitely key to Portland's game one victory, and he could very well be a huge part of their playoff run moving forward.

George also was sidelined on February 28, March 2 and March 3 with soreness in the right shoulder. George buried a 3 and it was 93-92 with 2:35 to go, but Lillard's trey upped Portland's lead to 96-92 with 2:23 to play.

Westbook's layup got the Thunder within 64-60, but he collected his fourth foul late in the third and went to the bench. The Blazers haven't made it out of the first round for the past two seasons.

Enes Kanter had a fantastic regular season for the Blazers after they signed him in February following his buyout with the New York Knicks.

"Any time you're going up against a team you played for, in the most important series of the year, you're going to want to play well", Lillard said.

UP NEXT: Game 2 is Tuesday night at the Moda Center.
