Damian Lillard said his Portland Trail Blazers would beat the Golden State Warriors in six games, which means the Blazers have their work seriously cut out for them after dropping Game 1. With Game 2 set for Wednesday, sportsbooks opened the Dubs as 13.5-point home favorites with a total of 219.5.
– Shark Bites
- The Trail Blazers are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 19 of the Warriors’ last 26 games.
- The Trail Blazers are 0-7 SU in their last seven games against the Warriors.
Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry grab most of the headlines, but Warriors power forward Draymond Green has been the biggest difference-maker in this series so far. Green recorded 19 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, five blocks and three steals in a 121-109 triumph on Sunday, including stuffing a pair of dunk attempts in the fourth quarter.
The dynamic backcourt duo of Lillard and CJ McCollum was fantastic for the Blazers thanks to a combined 75 points, but the rest of the team amassed only 34 points on 12-of-39 shooting in Game 1. Big man Jusuf Nurkic’s absence was noticeable, and he’s currently questionable for the remainder of the series. If Nurkic can’t get back on the floor, this series might not see five games.
After soaring over the 219.5 number in Game 1, OVER bettors once again cashed tickets in this series. In the last 16 meetings between the clubs, the OVER is 13-3.
