PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Damian Lillard had a career-high 51 points, seven assists and six steals to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a stunningly dominant 137-105 win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

C.J. McCollum added 21 points and seven assists for the Blazers, who have won four straight and nine of 10 to move above .500 for the first time since Nov. 4 (3-2).

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 31 points and five assists. Draymond Green added 14 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists, but also had nine turnovers as Golden State snapped its 11-game winning streak.

The Blazers used a stifling defense throughout the game, but especially in the third quarter when they forced the defending champions into 13 turnovers.

Portland led 104-79 after three and the lead could have been bigger if the Blazers had been able to convert more of those turnovers into points.

During the game, action on the court wasn't just left to the players. A fan from Tualatin won a new car after sinking a half-court shot.
