The Portland Trail Blazers are going to have their hands full against the Golden State Warriors in game 2 of round 2 of the Western Conference NBA playoffs. You have probably have heard a lot about the Warriors team. They are the reigning NBA champions and also happen to be one of the greatest teams to ever play professional basketball.
This season the Warriors recorded 73 regular season wins. That is a new NBA record, besting the 96′ Chicago Bulls. So how can Portland, who only won 44 games this season, have a chance against the greatest team in the history of the NBA? With some help from injuries, that’s how. The Warriors number one scorer all season, Stephen Curry, 28, is currently sitting out, resting his knee after a strain suffered in the first round.
The rest of the Warriors responded well, with a decisive victory in game one. Klay Thompson, 26 picked up the slack scoring 37 points in 37 minutes. The Trail Blazers are strong, fast and hungry too but they just may be out matched in this series. Portland will need more production, from their starters, like they got in round 1, and stronger defense from their bench if they have a chance to steal a win away from this record-breaking team.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Do the Trail Blazers have a shot at getting back in this series or will the Warriors dominate and sweep them out in 4? Let us know who you will be rooting for in this Western Conference showdown!
