Golden State’s Klay Thompson had 33 points and Stephen Curry had 29 points and 11 assists as the Splash brothers came up big again to oust the Trail Blazers, 125-121, in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals Wednesday night in Oakland.

Damian Lillard finished with 28 points and C.J. McCollum had 27 for Portland.

Golden State heads to the Western Conference final against either the Spurs or the Thunder.

Raptors 99, Heat 91: DeMar DeRozan scored 34 points, Kyle Lowry had 25 and the Toronto Raptors beat the Miami Heat to take a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Bismack Biyombo had 10 points for the Raptors, who can clinch their first conference finals berth with a win in Game 6 in Miami on Friday.

It was DeRozan’s franchise-best 13th 20-point game in the playoffs and his sixth this postseason.

Dwyane Wade scored 20 for Miami, Goran Dragic and Josh Richardson each had 13 and Joe Johnson 11.

Toronto led by 20 in the first half and by 13 to start the fourth quarter before its lead was cut to one. DeRozan sealed it by going 4 for 4 on his free throws in the final 21 seconds.

Love blooms in Cleveland

One year after Kevin Love’s first playoff appearance ended with a dislocated left shoulder, an injury that wrecked Cleveland’s chances of winning an NBA title, the versatile big man is playing at an All-Star level and perhaps the biggest reason the Cavaliers are 8-0 in the postseason.

Through two rounds, Love is averaging 18.9 points, 12.5 rebounds and shooting 44 percent (28 of 63) on three-pointers. The Cavs, who knocked down a league-record 25 threes in one game and 77 in their series against the Hawks, are outgunning everyone, including trigger-happy Golden State in these playoffs.

“Kev is just being Kev,” said LeBron James, whose on-court relationship with Love has been analyzed for two seasons. “He’s a workhorse, a guy who is giving us 19 and 12 in the postseason and has eight straight double-doubles. No, he’s not the Kev in Minnesota. He’s the Kev in Cleveland.”

For Love, now 12-0 in the playoffs, the comeback has been a year in the making.

After six sometimes-miserable seasons with the Timberwolves, Love finally got into the playoffs last spring only to have his debut end horribly when Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk yanked his shoulder from the socket. Love had surgery and spent the remainder of the playoffs in a sling, sitting helplessly on Cleveland’s bench, the pain of not playing as searing as his injury.

Looking back, Love feels the hurt helped him heal.

“There’s something to be said for being able to sit there and watch and be hungry,” he said yesterday as the Cavs returned to practice while awaiting an opponent in the Eastern Conference finals. “I think last year kind of helped me, getting a little taste in the playoffs and then having it taken away from me.”

n Heat’s Dragic fined

Miami guard Goran Dragic has been assessed a technical foul and fined $2,000 for swinging at Toronto guard Cory Joseph under the basket late in the fourth quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The NBA announced the ruling yesterday after a review. “It was just a physical play,” Dragic told reporters yesterday. “I was trying to get a rebound and he was holding my arm. I kind of tried to let it go. I swung it a bit but there was no contact, nothing.”

Said Joseph before Game 5: “Ah, I got nothing to say. I’m just focused on tonight.” — AP
