How to watch National Basketball Association playoffs 2017 online, preview, start time

Lillard answered them directly stating that they will win in 6 games. It should be a wild kickoff to the NBA Playoffs so tune in to see every exciting second. In road games, the Blazers put up 106 while allowing 110.

Been Ready. Huge postseason for them, can they avenge last season's colossal colapse or will they trick it off again.

However, while stopping short of saying the Blazers are a three-man team, they are nevertheless short in the supporting cast.

There are no questions about what drives the No. 1-seed Warriors (67-15 in the regular season), who led the National Basketball Association in offensive rating, were second in defensive rating and No. 1 in net rating.

Head to head, the Blazers are 5-12 ATS in the last 16 meetings overall and 6-20 ATS in the last 26 meetings in Golden State. "You kind of depend on that, but also know that they run some different stuff and they work well, they're a different team together as far as their new center".

The Dubs are a huge favorite in this season, but the Trail Blazers are not just going to roll over and give up.

Golden State swept Portland, 4-0, during the regular season and one of those losses was a 45-point thumper on December 17 at Oracle Arena. That's part of playoff basketball. The rest of the pieces still do not fit, and, save for some offense from Allen Crabbe and the well-intended defense of forward pairing Al-Farouq Aminu and Mo Harkless (along with the occasionally big rebounding night from a rejuvenated Noah Vonleh, who seems to thrive alongside Nurkic), Portland has little else to turn to.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had the same problem in the 2015 NBA Finals against the Warriors. The Raptors have lost the opening game in eight consecutive playoff series. There were some concerns as the Warriors showed signs of weakness when Durant went down to injury, but now that he is back, the Warriors will be eager to get on the court and prove that they are even better than they were last season when they went 73-9 in the regular season.

"I was kind of expecting he would be out this game and I was kind of expecting he'd be back the next one".

The Trail Blazers fill the final playoff spot in the West and will look to cause an upset in the First Round.

The Warriors won the regular season battle by winning 4 out of 4 games against the Trail Blazers. Lillard could have a big game, but he doesn't have the supporting cast he needs to play competitively in this series, especially in games at Golden State. They rated 21st in defensive rating this season. "They played harder, they were more physical". The Baby Face Assassin had arguably the best playoff game of his career a year ago in Portland after he came back from his MCL Sprain.

Nah, Steve Kerr refuses to think about it that way. Offensive execution is always critical against a team that can score as well as the pesky Blazers.

The Trail Blazers have moved in the opposite direction.

Durant averaged 29.3 points against Portland and Curry 27.3.
