Blazers vs Warriors: The Golden State Warriors next game is scheduled to play against Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA Western Conference Playoffs First Round, Game 2 in which Warriors lead series 1-0.

He is hopeful of playing in Saturday's Game 3 at Portland as the Warriors try to take a 3-0 lead in the series, though coach Steve Kerr said being up two games could affect any decision. Game Four is set for Monday.

Golden State is the best team in the league this is an absolute fact.

The NBA Playoff match of Portland Trail Blazers vs Golden State Warriors (PTB vs GSW) live streaming will be telecasted on KGW and TNT TV Channels. "That's totally the expectation but you've got to be careful with this stuff, too". "Understand that it's a long game, and you try to wear them down".

Asked about his potential future relationship with Trump , Erdogan said: "It s very early to comment". There was no confirmation from the White House about a meeting with President Erdogan.

Couple those potent scoring runs with a quiet night from Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum (23 combined points) and the Trail Blazers really stood no chance. "We didn't do that". He sprained the MCL in his right knee slipping on a wet spot during Game 4 of the first round a year ago at Houston and missed the first three games against the Blazers in the Western Conference semifinals before coming off the bench in the fourth.

In a series that was intriguing from the get-go due to all of the incredible scorers on the floor at one time between both teams, the victories by the Warriors so far have been decided by players like Draymond Green and JaVale McGee. It just doesn't make sense. Instead of assigning him impact to a player, they chopped it up, passed it around and ended up with a dominant 30-point win without a single player even scoring 20 points. Durant won't be 100 percent even if he can go, so that cuts into Golden State's production. After the star guards combined to scorch the Warriors for 75 points in Game 1, they were unable to deliver an encore. He finished with 15 points, five rebounds, four blocks and a steal, shooting a ideal 7-for-7 from the field and making his only free throw. And you know they will.

In the game-1 loss, CJ McCollum scored game-high 41 points while Damian Lillard posted 34 for the Blazers. Warriors scored 33 and the Blazers just scored 21 points.

"I think that we found ways to score".

The Golden State Warriors will not risk Kevin Durant getting a worse injury than the strained calf that sidelined him for Game 2 of their playoff series against Portland on Wednesday night. "We respect them and have to come out with the same fire on Wednesday". Throw him out there and he pulls it and he's out for a few weeks, you feel like an idiot. It would not be a shock to see Curry, Thompson, Iguodala and Green approach 40 minutes, especially if it's a close game. None of Portland's forwards have been able to offset the production of Golden State's vocal leader. Thompson's three 3-pointers gave him 200 in the postseason for his career, tying him with Scottie Pippen and Michael Finley for 14th with NBA's all-time list.
