The Warriors have won both of the games in this series by double-digits and they have done so without Stephen Curry.
Curry pinpointed a Game 3 return, but Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said he likely would not play. Curry was injured in the last series, as the Warriors were up 2-0, so it would be pretty shocking if he played in this game since the Warriors are in control of the series so far.
In Game 2 the Warriors beat the Blazers 110-99.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors won Game 1 easily, but they had to use a late run to beat the Blazers in Game 2. They outscored Portland 34-12 in the 4th quarter to win by 10.
Klay Thomson was the leading scorer again in Game 2, but while he did go for 27 points he was only 7/20 from the field and 5/14 from 3-pt land.
The Warriors shot a solid FG% of 46.2% in Game 2 and 4 of the 5 starters scored in double figures.
Golden State was the highest scoring team in the league this season and they have scored 118 points and 110 points respectively in the 2 games in this series.
Thomson and Draymond Green combined for 60 points in Game 1, but only combined for 44 in Game 2. Green was also 7/20 from the floor. The other Warriors’ players stepped up in Game 2, especially in the 4th quarter, but Green and Thomson need to have better shooting nights in this game in Portland.
This season the Warriors are 35-8 on the road.
Will the Blazers be about to put together a solid full game? In Game 1 they got off to a horrible start and in Game 2 they fell apart in the 4th quarter.
Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum were pretty solid in Game 2, for the most part, combining for 47 points. They are the guys that need to step up in this game.
The Blazers used a solid defensive scheme to contain Thomson in Game 2 and they need to do the same in this game.
The Blazers only got 21 points from their bench in Game 2 and they need a spark from the reserves in this game.
The Blazers are 31-13 at home this season.
