Warriors Have the Blazers on the Ropes

Stephen Curry CJ McCollum

The Portland Trail Blazers’ odds to win their second-round series with the Golden State Warriors were stacked against them even without Stephen Curry in the fold, but now that the sharpshooter is back it may take a miracle for them to overcome the 3-1 series deficit they’re facing. Game 5 gets underway in California tonight.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Warriors' last seven games with one day off between games.
  • The Warriors are 7-0 SU and ATS in their last seven games at home.
  • The Trail Blazers are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games with one day off between games.

Curry returned in Game 4 and didn’t miss a beat, erupting for a game-high 40 points including an NBA-record 17 in overtime to rally the Dubs to a 132-125 victory. Portland led 16-2 before Curry entered with six minutes remaining in the first quarter and led 71-59 in the third before Golden State mounted their comeback.

Only nine teams in NBA history have ever overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series, but Houston did so against the L.A. Clippers in last year’s West semifinals. The Blazers also won four straight against the Clips in the opening round after dropping the first two.

When Portland is coming off a loss, the UNDER is trending. The Trail Blazers have gone UNDER in seven of their last eight after a loss.
