Oakland Native Damian Lillard Predict Blazers Upset Over Warriors In 6 Games

Dame thinks the Portland Trail Blazers can repeat what they did previous year vs the Los Angeles Clippers, this time against Golden State. The Warriors swept the Blazers 4-0 in the regular season. But all games were played before the Blazers turned things around after the All-Star break. The Portland Trail Blazers (41-40) have three-game winning streak along with the eight games win out of last ten matches.

Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers have their hands full in the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

The Golden State Warriors are in the playoffs for a fifth straight season and have won 15 of their last 16 games. Lillard was asked for a prediction of Blazers in six or seven, and modified the old Brandon Jennings line from the 2013 playoffs where he said "Bucks in six" when asked for a prediction for Milwaukee's upcoming series with the top-seeded Cavs.

Among the Golden State Warriors players trying to get healthy, the biggest name is former NBA MVP Kevin Durant. Allen Crabbe is dealing with a foot injury and Damian Lillard has a right foot strain that caused them each to miss recent games. Now the roster is going to do everything it can to make the Portland Trail Blazers vs.

Game 1 will tip off on Sunday afternoon at 3:30pm EST. However, either way, this is a lot of points to lay with a Portland team that can light it up. "It was a lighthearted exchange, but with that said, I do believe we can win the series". The value is with the points even though the Warriors are easily the better team.
