No Stephen Curry no problem for the Warriors in the first game of this series, as they took a 1-0 lead with a 118-106 win over the Blazers.
The win in Game 1 snapped the Blazers 4-game winning streak.
The Blazers need to get off to a better start in this game than in Game 1 when they were outscored 37-17 in the first quarter.
Portland Trail Blazers
In Game 1 Damian Lillard was the leading scorer for Portland with 30 points, but he was only 8/26 from the floor. On top of that he was the only Blazers’ player in the game that had over 15 points.
In Game 1 the Warriors did shoot 47.3% from the floor, but the Blazers only had a FG% of 40.2%.
The Blazers did not have to worry about Curry in Game 1, but they allowed the other part of the Splash Brothers duo of Klay Thomson to go for a game high 37 points.
He bombed on 7 of his 14 3-pointers in the game and the Blazers have to keep from killing them from downtown in this Game 2.
Including the playoffs the Blazers are 11 games under .500 on the road.
Golden State Warriors
With Curry out Thomson and the other All Star in Draymond Green came up big combining to score 60 points.
The Blazers had no answer for the Blazers’ starters, as they all went for double figures while the leading bench scorer for Golden State only had 6 points.
Thomson has hit on 7 3-pointers in 3 straight post-season games, which is a NBA record.
The Blazers must get into the passing lanes for the Warriors, as even though their floor general in Curry is out Golden State has 38, 30, and 27 assists in their last 3 games respectively.
The Warriors need to duplicate their Game 1 performance where they moved the ball well, had a legit shooting night, and outrebounded the Blazers by 15 boards.
The Warriors only had 1 home loss this season and since the 2003-2004 season Portland is 5-20 in their last 25 games at Golden State.
