OVER is Hot When Blazers Face Warriors

The NBA’s best team and its most surprising squad are set to collide when the Portland Trail Blazers invade Oracle Arena for a date with the Golden State Warriors on Friday. Portland crushed Golden State 137-105 in their first appearance post All-Star break, but the Dubs have proceeded to win nine of 10 to stay on pace with the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ 72-10 record.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 10-3 in the Trail Blazers last 13 games.
  • The Warriors are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. the Western Conference.
  • The Trail Blazers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games.

Standout point guard Damian Lillard had the game of his life in the last meeting between the Western Conference squads, posting a career-high 51 points, seven assists and six steals in the victory while snapping Golden State’s 11-game win streak in the process.

It won’t be easy to knock off the Warriors at home, however. Stephen Curry and company are unbeaten on their home floor this season and extended their NBA record to 46 straight home wins in Wednesday’s 115-94 triumph over the Utah Jazz.

When the Blazers and Warriors get together, high-scoring games are the norm. The OVER is a perfect 4-0 in the last four matchups between the sides.
