Following Wednesday night's win against the Lakers, Golden State has the same 17-5 record as Portland since March 1.

"Blazers in six", he said, according to The Oregonian. Damian Lillard of The Portland Trail Blazers is one of them.

The Portland Trail Blazers have been scorching hot towards the end of the season.

As seen on the full Blazers vs. Warriors schedule, there are a lot of days off built into the series.

The Blazers are now underdogs against a Warriors team that boasts Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

IEA says global oil market now close to balance
Brent for June settlement rose 3 cents to $55.89 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. The IEA said it raised its second-quarter demand forecast but cut for the second half of the year.

So when he was asked if the eighth-seeded Blazers could beat the best team in the National Basketball Association in six games or seven, he went with the optimistic answer. Portland made every game with Golden State competitive during round two of the 2016 playoffs, and the Warriors should expect nothing different this time around. Dame thinks the Portland Trail Blazers can repeat what they did previous year vs the Los Angeles Clippers, this time against Golden State. Or maybe the Warriors are going to sleep the Blazers.

The Blazers (41-41) lost all four regular season match-ups versus the Warriors (67-15) this year. The Warriors only have to look to themselves to know they need to be careful. After trading for Jusef Nurkic from the Denver Nuggets, they proceeded to chase down Denver for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

San Antonio gave the Warriors the most trouble this season, winning two of their three regular season matchups in two landslide victories. Golden State should show up ready to play at its highest level every single game and treat each potential series like they're playing for rings.

Game 1 will tip off on Sunday afternoon at 3:30pm EST.
