SAN FRANCISCO. — Rookie Eric Paschall scored a season-best 36 points as the Golden State Warriors won for the first time at their new Chase Center in San Francisco, surprising the Portland Trail Blazers 127-118 on Monday night.
Alec Burks broke a tie with a three-point play with 6:37 remaining, and Paschall extended the lead to eight by hitting his fourth 3-pointer less than 90 seconds later.
The win capped a six-day, four-game homestand during which the Warriors had lost to Phoenix, San Antonio and Charlotte to fall to 0-4 at home before finally getting Monday’s win.
Portland took just its second loss in five road games.
In other games, it was Washington 115, Detroit 99; Brooklyn 135, New Orleans 125; Houston 107, Memphis 100; Milwaukee 134, Minnesota 106; and Phoenix 114, Philadelphia 109.
Neither team led by more than seven points until the final 5:10 of the tightly contested game, a rematch of last season’s Western Conference finals which the Warriors swept in four games.
