Damian Lillard and the Portland #Trail Blazers find themselves down 1-0 in their best-of-seven series against Golden State. On Wednesday night, they'll try to win on the road again, this time in an attempt to even the series with the Warriors ahead of two home games. There had been rumors that #Kevin Durant was questionable for the game, which may have given a glimmer of hope to the No. 8 seed. Here's a look at the Trail Blazers vs. Warriors Game 2 preview, as well as how to watch this 2017 NBA Playoffs game live streaming online or on TV..
Game 2 preview
Kevin Durant is the big question mark for the #Golden State Warriors ahead of tonight's game. In the first game of the series, Durant suffered a strained left calf. The Warriors still managed a 121-109 victory over Portland, but Durant was held out of the team workout on Tuesday. His coach Steve Kerr said there was "concern" over the superstar player which caused the team to hold him out of the practice session.
On the opposing side, the Portland Trail Blazers are without Jusuf Nurkic. He was out of the first game due to a fractured right leg. As of right now, it appears he won't be part of tonight's lineup for the Trail Blazers. The team will continue to rest its hopes on their talented backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.
The Blazers duo combined for 75 points in the first game, albeit in a loss. Still, they outscored Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson by 31 points, showing how much scoring ability this tandem in Portland has. It was Golden State's front court that had the edge in the win, though, as Draymond Green had 19 points, 12 boards, nine assists, five blocks, and three steals, while Durant scored 32 points despite the nagging injury he sustained..
Tonight's point spread still favors Golden State by double digits. As of this report, it was at -12.5 points in their favor, with the moneyline price at -1000. The underdog Blazers were priced at +650 on the moneyline with the over/under hovering around 218.5 points for the complete game.
