Curry-Less Dubs Host Blazers in Game 1

The Golden State Warriors survived without Stephen Curry in their first-round series with the Houston Rockets, but things are about to get a lot tougher in round two. Game 1 of the Dubs’ second-round playoff series with the Portland Trail Blazers kicks off this afternoon in California.

Shark Bites
  • The Trail Blazers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games.
  • The UNDER is 6-2 in the Trail Blazers last 8 overall.
  • The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Blazers handed Golden State their worst loss of the regular season (a 137-105 pounding on February 19). The Warriors committed 13 turnovers in the third quarter in the setback.

Golden State outscored Houston by 60 points in six quarters without Curry after the superstar suffered a knee injury in Game 4, so sports bettors shouldn’t assume the sky is falling in Oakland just yet.

The dynamic backcourt combo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum will be key for Portland in challenging the Warriors. The two combined for 45.9 points per game in the regular season, and both can shoot from long-range with ease and make every other player on the court better with their excellent passing.
