Warriors Look to Close out Trail Blazers
The Western Conference Finals resume this Monday night with the Golden State Warriors on the road as 3.5-point favorites against the Portland Trail Blazers. The total line at BetAnySports for Game 4 is set at 220 points and the tip in Portland on ESPN is set for 9 p.m.
The Warriors have lived up to expectations with a 3-0 series lead even with Kevin Durant sidelined with a calf injury. They took complete control of this best-of-seven tilt with Saturday’s come-from-behind 110-99 victory as three-point road favorites on BetAnySports’ closing line. The total stayed UNDER 221 points and it has stayed UNDER in three of their last five playoff games. Golden State is now 5-2 straight-up (4-3 against the spread) in seven road games this postseason.
The big three of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have made the absence of Durant an afterthought in the first three games of this series. Curry led the way on Saturday with a game-high 36 points and he has now scored at least 33 points in the last four games with Durant on the bench. Green posted a triple-double with 20 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists. The Warriors are averaging 117.1 points per game in the playoffs after finishing second in the NBA in scoring during the regular season (117.7 PPG).
Lillard Has to Show Up Hurt or Not
Portland has a slim to none chance of winning this series and the way it is playing right now it probably has the same chances to extend this series past four games. In their best effort against the Warriors at home on Saturday, the Trail Blazers blew an 18-point lead. They have failed to cover as underdogs in two of the first three games and they are 4-6 ATS in their last 10 playoff games.
Damian Lillard was Portland’s leading scorer in the regular season with 25.8 PPG. He tallied 19 points in Game 3 while shooting just 27.8 percent from the field. C.J. McCollum was the team’s leading scorer with 23 points but he also struggled shooting the ball by going 7-for-20 from the floor and 2-for-10 from three-point range. Portland has failed to cross the 100-point mark in three of its last six games.
The Warriors are a veteran playoff team that knows how to close teams out when they have the clear edge. This series ends in four with Golden State taking Game 4 both SU and ATS.
