Will he or won't he? Nurkic's return still uncertain

Will he or won't he? Nurkic's return still uncertain

The Warriors beat the Blazers all four times they met this season by an average margin of 19.5 points, so the odds aren't exactly in the Blazers' favor. Damian Lillard of The Portland Trail Blazers is one of them. Curry (25.3 ppg) and Thompson (22.3 ppg) make the Splash Brothers the second-highest scoring backcourt duo in the conference this year, and in the two games in which both backcourts were at full strength in the regular season series, they totaled the exact same amount of points as Lillard and McCollum.

Portland also sat forward Al Farouq-Aminu, and reserve guard Allen Crabbe missed a third straight game with foot soreness. In fairness, he was asked quite the leading question: "Blazers in six or seven?"

The Golden State Warriors (67-15) will face the Portland Tail Blazers (41-41) for the second postseason in a row. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.9 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 104.3 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Golden State Warriors series an exciting one for the fans. He was seen shooting during warmups for the past two regular-season games, and he's walking with no apparent limp. The Trail Blazers are 6-20 ATS in the last 26 meetings in Golden State, 5-12 ATS in the last 17 meetings and the over is 18-6 in the last 24 meetings.

So when he was asked if the eighth-seeded Blazers could beat the best team in the National Basketball Association in six games or seven, he went with the optimistic answer.

They'll have to get by Portland first, though. That's huge for Portland if he returns.

Connaughton's 3-pointer put Portland in front 93-86 in the final period.

Portland went 0-4 against the Warriors this season, although the last game in January was just a two-point Golden State win.
