The NBA’s Western Conference playoffs will have a game being played as Oklahoma City Thunder will be travelling to face Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
Oklahoma City Thunder lost the last game, and even though the disparity of points was only 5 points, it would still sting. They were touted as the dark horse and possibly the only team in the entire NBA who was going to be able to go toe-to-toe with the Golden State Warriors. The side is one of the best in terms of being defensive but relies heavily on Paul George and Russell Westbrook to be effective offensively. It is time for this duo to rise up and prove themselves to be an elite franchise.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers are coming off a win and would be on cloud nine. The team needs to keep themselves grounded, though. The franchise has been getting a lot of traction in terms of media attention as the lead up to the playoffs, and have been looking to avenge themselves of last year’s embarrassment. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are the stars of this franchise and they will be looking to lead the team to yet another win.
