    Default 2017 NBA Playoffs: (1) Golden State vs. (8) Portland

    A bit early, but since we already have matchups set in stone, why not?

    Really, Portland may win a game. And it'll probably take 50+ from Lillard if it happens. Otherwise, this should be a sweep. GSW has been waiting a whole year for redemption and they don't have time to waste here.

    Prediction: in 4

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I really think Portland can steal a game or two. Late Game Dame can make things happen with his back against the wall.
    IF they can get stable production from frontcourt, and KD isn't fully back to being himself, I really think Portland snags at least one.

    Warriors in 5...think Lillard and McCollum manage to take 1 game, would be really interesting if Nurkik could play.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    4-1 Warriors. I think Portland wins by some massive game by their backcourt.

    Golden State in 4. If Portland steals one I think it will be more about Nurkic beasting than Dame or CJ. If Nurkic can't go, it's an easy sweep.

    Expecting a sweep? Oracle booked the night of potential Blazers-Warriors playoff matchup

    Damian Lillard may have told a local reporter in Portland that the Trail Blazers would beat the No. 1 seed Golden State Warriors in six games, but whomever scheduled the space at Oracle Arena thinks differently.

    Users across social media and Reddit pointed out on Thursday that the home of the Warriors is booked for April 26th at 8 p.m. for Chance the Rapperís Coloring Book tour.

    The only problem? Thatís when Game 5 of the Western Conference series between the Blazers and the Warriors would take place if Portland can grab a game away from Golden State.



    Looking at both Chanceís website and ticketing vendors online, that information appears to be correct. Perhaps, if the Blazers can make a series out of it, the promoters will have to scramble to either move the date or find a new location for the concert.

    Then again, if thereís a sweep-worthy series waiting to happen, itís probably Warriors-Blazers, especially if Portland doesnít get Jusuf Nurkic back at full strength.

    Portland is playing without a center and is working.

    I didn't watch this one, but 12-10-4 in a loss isn't normally what I'd consider a game that qualifies for being call-out worthy numbers.

    I think it is. People all over this board have been doing the same with Lance, who has arguably had worse numbers in each game. I understand the impact difference, just saying though.

    He also had really bad turnovers and dribbled the ball for a long time, his stats lie.
