Welcome to Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals between the Blazers and the Warriors. Golden State won Game 1 in dominant fashion even without the services of All-World forward Kevin Durant, who will be out tonight and also for the foreseeable future.
The Blazers will look to tie the series up at one game apiece, but Golden State has the best home-court advantage in the NBA and taking this game will be a challenge even with one of the finest guard combos in the league in Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.
Lillard had an uncharacteristically bad performance on Tuesday in his hometown, and it’s hard to imagine he’d have two such duds in a row. Can Lillard lead the Blazers past the Warriors tonight or will Golden State hold serve at home once again?
Tonight’s game will be on at 6 p.m. on ESPN. Enjoy the game!
