After getting blown out in their first game of the season the Warriors have regrouped and won 2 in a row. However, they are coming off a less than impressive 106-100 win over a weak Phoenix Suns team.
The Blazers have won 2 of their 3 games this season and in their last game they were on the road and beat the Denver Nuggets 115-113 in OT.
The Warriors took 3 of 4 games against the Blazers last season.
Golden State Warriors
Early in the season the Warriors rank 4th in the league in points per game, but dead last in opponents’ points per game.
In their win over the Suns the Warriors did not have a good shooting night, but they did hold Phoenix to a FG% of only 41.1%.
In the win over Phoenix Kevin Durant and Steph Curry combined for 65 points. Klay Thomson went for 14 in the Suns game, but only was 5/15 from the floor.
In three games he has failed to shoot over 40% from the floor in 2 of them and for the season he has been cold from deep only hitting on 3 of his 21 3-pointers.
Durant has been en fuego for his new team averaging over 31 ppg and in 2 of 3 games he has shot over 60% from the floor.
The Warriors gave up 11 offensive boards to the Suns, but that should not be a problem tonight facing a Blazers’ team that is thin up front and lacks a true center.
The Warriors are 2-0 on the road this season with their only loss coming at home.
The Blazers rank 2nd in the league in points per game and 24th in opponents points per game.
Damian Lillard has gotten off to a fast start this season and he is averaging 35 ppg. The Blazers have 5 players that are averaging in double figures and they are led by the G duo of Lillard and C.J. McCollum (21.3 ppg).
The top 3 scorers for Portland are guards, so it is key that the Warriors play legit perimeter D.
The Blazers held the Suns to FG% of only 38%, but they made it close by getting killed on the offensive glass.
Their lack of rebounding has hurt them and the frontcourt guys have to hit the glass in this game.
Lillard and McCollum combined for 60 points in the win over the Nuggets and if the Warriors can contain these guys and keep them to a low FG% than they will win their 3rd in a row.
The Blazers are 1-1 at home this season.

These teams had some big time shootouts last season and look for the same tonight between a couple of teams that have been giving up a lot of points.
