Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers seemed to gain strenth and won five out of six matches from January 24 to February 4, but then they stumbled twice in a row again. First, Chauncey Billups' team unsuccessfully went to the Bulls in Chicago – 121:129. And then they destroyed Milwaukee – 108:127. Which Portland is real, after all? The match with the current champion, the Golden State Warriors, will answer this question in many ways. In the meantime, the Trail Blazers are out of the playoff zone again - only in 12th place in the Western Conference, and it is unknown whether they can fight to get into the postseason.
Golden State Warriors
Steph Curry got another injury in the home match against Dallas (119:113) and will miss several weeks. However, Golden State won in the first game without their leader. Steve Kerr's team coped with Oklahoma very confidently – 141:114. In Curry's absence, Klay Thompson, who scored 42 points, assumed the role of leader. Jordan Poole was very good at playing along, making 12 assists. Golden State has someone to play without Steph Curry.
Expert Betting Tips
It is difficult to say why bookmakers offer such an understated total as 233-234 points for the upcoming match. Portland's three-point offense has been working great lately, while Golden State is one of the worst teams this season in terms of perimeter defense. Yes, the Warriors can experience difficulties in attack without Steph Curry. But the meeting against Oklahoma showed that even without him, Golden State has players to score. If not in the upcoming match, when will the Trail Blazers break a series of game failures with the Warriors? Golden State has only seven wins in 27 away matches in the current championship.
