The Blazers have their backs against the wall, big time, as they are down 3-1 in this series. They won Game 3 at home and had their chances in Game 4 before Stephen Curry took over in OT to lead the Warriors to the win.
Curry was recently named the league MVP and in his return in Game 4, after missing the first 3 games with an injury, he went for 40 points and set a NBA record scoring 17 points in OT.
In a wild Game 4 in Portland the Warriors beat the Blazers 132-125.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers did scored 125 points in Game 4, but they only shot 40.6% from the floor while the Warriors shot 46.3% from the floor.
In Game 4 Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum combined to score 60 points, but they were only a combined 18/53 from the field.
The Blazers had a 10 point lead at the half in Game 4, but were outscored by 11 points in the 3rd quarter. They could not stop Curry in OT and they have to figure out a way to stop the MVP, especially in the clutch.
Portland must also get back on defense in transition, as in Game 4 they gave up 28 points off the fast break while they only scored 11.
All 3 games in this series have been high scoring ones and with the Trail Blazers losing 3 of them they should slow the pace, as they are at a disadvantage in shootouts with all the offensive firepower Golden State has.
On the season the Blazers are only 17-29 on the road.
Golden State Warriors
Curry was needed in Game 4, as Klay Thomson was only 7/18 from the floor, but did have 23 points. With Curry back on the court the Blazers will have to come up with something special to win and force a Game 6 in Portland.
Including the playoffs the Warriors have won all 4 home games facing the Blazers this season.
Curry may come off the bench again in Game 5, but he and Thomson are the players the Blazers have to key on.
If both of these guys shoot a legit FG% Portland has no chance to win.
