NBA Playoffs First Round, Game 4: Warriors vs Trail BlazersPublished April 24, 2017 by Sol FH
Can the Warriors pull off the sweep of the Trail Blazers? Check out Game 4 tonight at 3:30 GMT.
The first round of the NBA playoffs is coming close to an end. The Cavs are already through to the second round after their sweep of the Pacers and the Golden State Warriors are trying to close out their opening round series against the Portland Trail Blazers tonight at Moda Center. Portland have lost the first three games due to getting overpowered by the Warriors in the second half of each game, but they seem to start the games much stronger than Golden State does. If the Trail Blazers are to have any chance of winning tonight, they will need their players to step it up in the second half and try to contain Golden State's incredible roster.
Does Portland Have a chance?
Portland are going into tonight's game as the underdogs. Golden State are playing without their head coach, Steve Kerr who is suffering from terrible body pains, which could mean that he will be out for the entirety of the first round of the playoffs. The Warriors were also without Kevin Durant in Game 3, but that didn't even slow the team down, as Steph Curry and Klay Thompson took over the game and there was really nothing that Portland could do to stop them.
Whether or not the Trail Blazers have a chance tonight is a good question, but it is one that we will only know after the end of the fourth quarter. Everything is pointing to a Warriors' sweep. The Blazers had their best chance for victory in Game 3, but the Warriors totally wreaked havoc and won the game impressively. Now, with Game 4 tonight, and the chance that Durant will be back in the lineup, the Blazers' chances are very slim.
