The Portland Trailblazers will have to travel a few hours south, to take the court against the Golden State Warriors. The Trailblazers are a game over .500 this season and riding a four game losing streak. Golden State is trending in the opposite direction.
The Warriors return home after a six game road stretch.
The team lost Steph Curry for three weeks to an ankle sprain during the trip.
The last time the Trailblazers and Warriors took the court against each other, was last season. The Warriors swept the four game series, 4-0. The two teams last regular season game verses each other was a 113-111 Warriors win. Tonight’s game might bring the same excitement.
The Portland Trailblazers, are a fun team to watch, and feature two of the better guards in the NBA, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Liilard is averaging 26.1 points, six rebounds and five assists this year, and McCollum is pouring in 21 points per game this season for Portland.
Aside from the dynamic play of Lillard and McCollum, the Trailblazers are lacking depth on the bench and in the front court. Jusuf Nurkic is averaging a solid 15 points and nearly eight rebounds this season. Al Faroqu Aminu is averaging 10 points per game, but it is still not enough for the Trailblazers to be taken seriously in the west.
Portland is looking to turn around a four game losing skid, but doing so against the Warriors is going to be a tall task. The Trail Blazers recently took a seven point loss at Houston, 124-117. The Trailblazers shot 51 percent from the floor, and 44 percent from three point range in the loss.
Despite last night’s solid play, James Harden dropped 48 on Portland. The Trailblazers are a top tier defensive team through the first part of the season. Portland ranks fifth in points allowed this season, giving up 101.2 points per game this year.
Portland is going to be up for this game. The Trailblazers have not beaten the Warriors in their last six tries. Expect a huge game from Lillard and McCollum tonight.
Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors are fresh off a six game road stretch. The Warriors were perfect on the trip, despite losing their all star point guard a few weeks. With Curry sidelined, Kevin Durant has stepped in as the offensive leader for Golden State. Durant had 35 points against the Hornets and 36 against Detroit in Curry’s absence.
Golden State is 8-3 at home this year. Golden State’s forgotten about all star Klay Thompson, is quietly averaging 20.6 points per game this year. His defensive play has also been key to the Warriors recent success on the road. Thompson dropped 21 points in their last win against Detroit on eight of 18 shooting from the floor.
As the season progresses, so do the Warriors. The team sputtered out of the gate to start the year. Now the Warriors are 20-6 and getting better. The Warriors defense is allowing 106.1 points per game this year.

Free Portland Trailblazers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
Portland is going to give Golden State all they can handle. The effort will be there, but the roster just doesn’t have enough firepower to equal the Warriors scoring and bench play.
This one could be a blowout. Golden State is going to ready for this game. Klay Thompson has not had a huge game yet this year. Look for Thompson to go for 30 or more at home.
