The Defending Champions of the NBA are Golden State Warriors, and they are going to host Portland Trail Blazers in the regular season on Thursday. The Warriors got a reality check in their last game against LA Lakers. The team were out-shown by the visitors and that wound would still be hurting the side. None of their All-Stars did enough to assert the dominance and this would be worrying for Coach Steve Kerr. The team still has the best roster of anyone and if they are going to win another title, it will be down to consistency.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers too are on a similar slippery slope. The team has all the chances of making the playoffs but getting a higher seed has to be the agenda of the franchise. They do have some really good players, and last year they were unable to do anything significant in post-season. Regardless, the likes of Damian Lillard, Jusuf Nurkic and CJ McCollum are gunning to show why they should be also considered as elite players in the NBA.
Match Timing: December 28, 2018, @ 9:00 AM IST
