It’s on! The Golden State Warriors will travel north for game 3 of the NBA’s Western Conference Semi-finals against the Portland Trail Blazers on May 7th, 2016 at 8:30pm EST. Watch the Trail Blazers battle back from an 0-2 series deficit online here!
The sweep is on. The Golden State Warriors are quickly handling the Portland Trail Blazers in the second round of the NBA playoffs. The Warriors have the home court advantage in this best of seven series and are getting the job done without their star MVP, all-star, Stephen Curry, 28, who is out with an injury. Watch how all the action goes down in game 3 online here!
This season has been all about the Golden State Warriors. They made their mark in the record books as one of the greatest teams in the history of the NBA when they earned 73 wins in the regular season. They bested the 96′ Chicago Bulls and are now trying to repeat as NBA champions.
But injuries have slowed the Warriors down. The Warriors had a rocky first round of playoff action but are now in the middle of dismantling an out-gunned Trail Blazer team. But this series is far from over. Fans were freaking out when the Warriors star player, Steph, tweaked his knee in the first round. He has been watching his team get the job done without him ever since. The two week time period Stephen was given to heal is just about up and Blazer fans should fear is imminent return.
For Portland to get back into this series they need to defend their home floor in games 3 & 4 or it might be vacation time for the team. Portland has the answer for Golden State, they beat the Warriors earlier this season after the all-star break in a 137-105 rout. So if they can tap into that game plan, control the tempo, maybe they have a shot at a win or two.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Are the Warriors the best team in the history of the NBA? Or are they over-rated and will lose to the Trail Blazers in this series? Who will you be rooting for in this game 3 of the playoffs?
