Game Preview: Warriors vs. Trail Blazers - 2/14/19

powered by

HITTING THE TRAIL VS THE BLAZERS
The Dubs hit the road for one last game before the All-Star break to visit the Portland Trail Blazers. Golden State leads the four-game season series 2-1 going into their final regular season game. It’s been mixed results against Portland this year; the Warriors have won games in both the Bay Area and Portland by double-digits, but also lost one overtime game on Warriors Ground. The squad looks to enter the break on a high note with their fifth win in a row before getting a week to recoup.

LAST TIME OUT
Warriors held off the Utah Jazz in a 115-108 win. All three Dubs All-Stars scored 20-plus points: 28 for Durant, 24 for Curry, and 22 for Thompson. » Full Game Recap

PORTLAND SCOUTING REPORT
Portland is 6-4 in their last 10 games. However, the Trail Balzers still remain one of the top teams in the Western Conference; their overall 33-23 record has them currently sitting in fourth. The dynamic duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are always a three-ball threat, and Jusuf Nurkic continues to shine at the pivot point. Expect a fast-paced, exciting game from Portland.
