Golden State Warriors at Portland Trail Blazers (Thursday 03:00 GMT)

Portland blew hot then cold as they followed up a six-game win streak with a four-game skid, but their return home on Monday night brought a change in fortunes as they rolled over in-form Charlotte and the Trail Blazers will now be looking to make it back-to-back victories on their home court when they welcome Golden State to town on Wednesday night. The Warriors saw a run of three straight victories come to an end with a horrible blow-out defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night, but they are now well rested and will be eager to bounce back at the first attempt. Can they?

The bookmakers have struggled to separate the two teams, as evidence by the handicap that has been set for this one, and it is easy to see. Golden State were in great shape heading into that meeting with the defending champions, only to get destroyed at the Staples Center, and while that loss to the Lakers was a disappointing and pretty embarrassing one, the Warriors have not just become a terrible team overnight. The same can be said for Portland – they hit a major slump after that win streak in February but they steadied the ship on Monday night and they did it against a Hornets team who had shown promising signs during recent outings. That gives me faith in them here.

Damien Lillard’s scoring streak has slowed a little in recent weeks, making it difficult to get behind him when the total points mark has been set so high by the bookies, but the All-star guard has played the role of provider and creator during this time, averaging just over nine assists per game over his last four outings. Enes Kanter, meanwhile continues to rack up the rebounds, hitting double figures in 16 of his last 18 games, and Golden State lack a dominant rebounder so this is a great opportunity to rack up plenty more. Lillard and Kanter can lead the Trail Blazers to victory here.
