Trail Blazers @ Warriors Game Thread
After clinching the sixth today against the Grizzlies, the Trail Blazers head to the Bay Area for one final dress rehearsal before the playoffs begin this weekend. Although there is nothing to play for, Portland will still look to exact some revenge for the beat-down Golden State handed them in the Rose Garden the week prior. And it is always a good move to stay sharp heading into the postseason. If any rotation players sit, they could be looking at a five-six day layoff in-between games. But there is always the chance of risking injury. Which way will Coach McMillan lean? For the Warriors, Monta Ellis is out after being taken the hospital after taking a hard fall earlier this week and Steph Curry is a game-time decision after tweaking an ankle. More important to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday will be the results of the Lakers, Mavericks & Thunder games.
So Rip City, will the Blazers be able to tie up the season series with the Warriors?continue
