★★★
Fresh off their first regular season home loss in over a year, the Golden State Warriors welcome the Portland Trail Blazers to Oracle Arena in a Western Conference showdown.

The Dubs have not lost back-to-back games since April 5th-7th of 2015. No team in NBA history has played an entire season without losing two consecutive games (GSWStats).

Catch up on all of the highlights from the last meeting between Golden State and Portland back on March 11th:

Golden State enters their matchup against Portland as big favorites at home yet again. The 12 point line for Sunday's contest is the 11th straight home game the Warriors are favored by double digits, however the Dubs are 5-6 ATS in those games.

Portland is 10-5 ATS in their last 15 games on the road and have won five of their last six games overall. But in their last seven games against the Warriors, the Blazers have managed to cover the spread only once according to OddsShark.com.

There is no shortage of points whenever the Warriors and Blazers meet. Each of the last five games between the two Western Conference foes have gone OVER. Virtual sportsbook BetOnline lists the tentative OVER/UNDER line for Sunday's meeting is currently 224.5 total points. While the OVER is a solid bet between these two teams, keep in mind that six of Golden State's last seven games have gone UNDER.
