To say the Portland Trail Blazers were not at their best would be an understatement, but it’s a late surge from the Warriors that makes the result appear to be a failure.

Conceding 39 points in the final quarter was the downfall for Portland, who were only down by six entering the fourth period.
With Kevin Durant still sidelined with a calf sprain, the chance is still lurking for the Blazers to tie the series before heading to Portland.
Damian Lillard will need to step up if he wants to lead the Blazers to victory, as he missed eight shots from the field in Game One and was inconsistent throughout.
Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trail Blazers Game Two Tips
Damian Lillard Over 6.5 Assists @ -103.09 with Bovada
The role of a point guard is to get every player on the court involved, whether its through transition or during set-up plays, and Dame just didn’t execute well enough on Tuesday. After watching the way Rodney Hood and Maurice Harkless knocked down shots, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Lillard starts looking for these players on the wings.
Klay Thompson to Make Four Three-Pointers @ -109.89 with Bovada
The old school Klay Thompson is playing in this series against the Trail Blazers, which means we have to cash in on this form spike. Klay was pulling the trigger on dozens of shots but was not hitting the uncontested ones, which means he hit a trio of threes whilst he wasn’t at his best. If he takes nine shots from beyond the arc this Thursday, four or more will drop.
Stephen Curry Pts+Reb+Ast Over 44.5 @ -109.89 with Bovada
After the incredible performance the two-time MVP gave us in Game One, you have to go for him again in this second match. Curry was at his best, making nine threes and shooting above 50 per cent from the field – something he hasn’t done since the regular season. If Curry is on again, the Blazers can kiss their NBA Finals hopes goodbye.
Golden State Warriors by 1-10 Points @ +163 with Bovada
There will be a huge response from the Trail Blazers this Thursday, as they are too good and too proud to be blown out twice in a row. Portland will keep it to a short margin, but the classy Warriors will head to Oregon with a 2-0 advantage.
