The heavyweights of the Western Conference will have the first round of playoffs take place in the NBA as Oklahoma City Thunder host Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.
Oklahoma City Thunder are in a dire need for a win and have to come out of their shell in this game. The franchise has been underperforming ever since Kevin Durant left, and this is not supposed to be the storyline for them. They were touted to be the side to be Golden State Warriors, and they will have to fight back now all the way to progress into the semi-finals. The side has got a fight in their hands, and need to do better than what they have done till now.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers are the side who has taken the playoffs by storm. The team has taken their level of basketball to a whole new place, and that is been the story so far. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are straight out balling, and which has made things really interesting in the Western Conference. If they are able to keep this up, it will be one of the biggest achievement the franchise has ever had. It seems that their target of making the finals of the conference wasn’t as farfetched as first anticipated.
