In what has been a brilliant first round of the Western Conference in the NBA as Oklahoma City Thunder travel to face and meet their fate when they take on Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
Oklahoma City Thunder have had the worst reality check a team can possibly have in the recent playoffs as they have been thoroughly dismantled. The team is looking to like a shadow of their former selves and much of that has been down to their two superstars in Paul George and Russell Westbrook. Neither has performed at the level expected from them, and this has to be the biggest disappointment the NBA will see in the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers have been absolutely sensational and thoroughly dominant in this series. The franchise has broken the curse of being a choker, and it is clear that they will be looking to prove themselves as an elite side in the Western Conference. Their backcourt is now comparable with anyone as the duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum have been world-class in the first four games played.
