The Golden State Warriors enter this contest looking to complete the sweep. The Portland Trail Blazers haven’t been the easiest out at times, but the Dubs have used their depth and superstar talent to take care of business up to this point despite being shorthanded.
Game 4 has the potential to be a funeral for Rip City.

Golden State Warriors
The Warriors have proven why they’re the No. 1 seed out West and the presumed NBA Finals victors.
In three games against the Blazers, the Dubs have won in three different fashions. In Game 1, they took down Portland with a dominant fourth quarter to separate themselves from a hard-fought Blazers approach.
Game 2 saw them take over in the second quarter and win in blowout fashion. And Game 3 was an example of how they can come back after being down early to escape with a close, gritty win.
In Game 4, don’t be surprised if we see a performance that mimics Game 2. That’s not to say the Blazers won’t come out motivated, but they will be without Jusuf Nurkic despite the big man making his postseason debut Saturday night.
Note that the Warriors will be without Kevin Durant and head coach Steve Kerr. But that hasn’t proven to be a problem yet.
Golden State has gotten an excellent showing from its bench and has taken full advantage of a team that struggles defensively and relies on its two scoring guards as heavily as any team in the league relies on its top two scorers.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers have announced that their big man Jusuf Nurkic—the same big man that got them into the playoffs following the pre-trade deadline deal—will be out Game 4.
To be quite frank, he likely wasn’t going to be the difference between a win and a loss for the Blazers based on what we saw in Game 3; that said, his absence could be a killer when it comes to playing against the spread.
If Portland stands a chance at keeping things close, it’ll need two things. For starters, it will need Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum to be as dominant as they were in the first contest of this series.
Those two can go off against any defense (even the great Warriors), but it’ll be about efficiency in this one.
The second thing this team will need is support. As good as the two guards were in Game 1, they didn’t get enough help to put them over the top.
With Nurkic out in this one, it’s difficult to imagine a scenario where they get the help they need.
