NBA’s Western Conference Finals will see Golden State Warriors take on Portland Trail Blazers in what will be the first game of the series on Tuesday.
Golden State Warriors are the defending champions and showed the heart of a franchise who truly has been thoroughly dominant in the last game. With everyone picking Houston Rockets to get past this side in the absence of Kevin Durant, it was Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who took the mantle to lead the side to victory. They were absolutely sensational and will be looking to prove themselves to be the best side to have ever been assembled. With Durant out for atleast two more games, the pressure is on this team to take an important lead in this series.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers have defied expectations to break into the conference finals. They are a side who truly deserves this honour and most of their success has been down to the shooting backcourt of CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard. The duo have been on fire lately, and they will be hungry for more. This is redemption time for the Trail Blazers, and if by any chance they are able to win one of the first two games, the series will be poised in their favour.
