The Portland Trail Blazers and the Golden State Warriors will meet for the second time in the past three days as the NBA has teams playing consecutive games to cut down travel during the pandemic.
The Warriors hold the all-time record between the teams with 105 wins in 233 meetings. Last season, the teams played three times with the Blazers winning two of the three contests.
Portland Trail Blazers
Sometimes you get a gut instinct about a player or matchup and that’s what happened for me in the last game. It felt like coming home to the Bay would bring out the best in Damian Lillard who hasn’t shot the ball great this season, or at least at Dame standards.

Lillard was hot from deep hitting six of his ten 3-point attempts and led the Blazers with 34 points, four rebounds, eight assists, and a steal.
Backcourt partner CJ McCollum was also hot registering 28 points, a rebound, four assists, and three steals. McCollum had been red hot to start the 2020-21 campaign and added four triples in the victory over the Warriors.
Carmelo Anthony scored 18 while youngster Anfernee Simons added 11 as the only other double-figure contributors.
Rodney Hood exited the last game with thigh cramping, while Gary Trent Jr. (calf) and Nassir Little (personal) have missed the last two and three games respectively. All three are questionable for Sunday.
Zach Collins (ankle surgery) is slated to make his return in late January.
Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green finally returned to the court coinciding with the Warriors seven-game homestand. Unfortunately, as he returned rookie standout James Wiseman left as he suffered an ankle sprain versus the Blazers although he’s listed as probable for Sunday.
Like Lillard, Stephen Curry was hot scoring 26 points along with eight rebounds and five assists to lead the Warriors. Curry hit four 3-pointers which was more than double the Dubs output as they shot 7 of 35 for 20%.
The ability of Andrew Wiggins and Kelly Oubre to find range from deep could often be the difference in whether Golden State wins or losses games because Curry can’t be the only one connecting from deep. In the loss, the pair was 1 of 7 from outside.
Wiggins (15), Eric Paschall (13), and Oubre (10) were the other Warriors to hit double-figures.
Alen Smailagic (knee) is out until February while Marquese Chriss (ankle) and Klay Thompson (Achilles) are lost for the season.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
The Dubs have moments where they look like things are going to click especially when Oubre and Wiggins are connecting so the addition of Green should help them defensively although, again the wings ability to hit 3-pointers feels like what will determine game outcomes.
