Lee's layup and free throw gave Golden State a 41-33 lead late in the second quarter, and the Warriors were up 45-40 at the break.
Golden State stretched the advantage to 53-45 on Thompson's jumper, but the Blazers closed to 57-56 on Aldridge's dunk before going ahead on consecutive long jumpers from Felton.
The game shifted in Portland's way when Felton grabbed a steal but fell trying to control it, and passed it from the floor to Nicolas Batum, who went in for the fast-break layup and free throw to put Portland ahead 65-59.
Thompson's 3-pointer got the Warriors as close as 70-69 early in the fourth quarter. Jenkins' pull-up jumper and a layup put Golden State in front 75-72, but the Blazers went up 80-77 on Felton's 3-pointer with 5 minutes to go.
The Blazers were coming off a 103-96 loss to the Lakers Friday night at Staples Center.
NOTES: McMillan, fired as the Blazers' coach on March 15, took out a full-page ad in the Oregonian newspaper Sunday, thanking fans for their support: "Coaches come and go but one thing that will never change is the unique bond that Portland and Oregon has with its NBA team," McMillan wrote in the ad. Earlier this week, McMiIllan dropped by the team's practice facility to personally thank the employees there. ... Jenkins' previous career high was 15 at Sacramento on March 13.
