The Golden State Warriors may be playing their last Western Conference playoff game in Oracle Arena tonight, as they look to take a 2-0 lead on the Portland Trail Blazers. With that in mind, the Dubs will be leaning on their home crowd for an extra boost to battle what should be a motivated Blazers team.
Oakland’s very own Damian Lillard probably has had all the homies in his ear telling him that can’t have another 4-of-12 shooting night as he did in Game 1. C.J. McCollum also struggled in the first game, shooting 7-of-19 from the field. If the Blazers have any chance of stealing a game in the Bay, they’ll need their two stars to play out of their minds.
McCollum should have some motivation, as the infamous “Jennifer” is in the building tonight.
If you recall, Jennifer’s Twitter call out of McCollum is the folk tale spark of this inspired Blazers run.
The defending champions probably don’t give a damn about Jennifer though; I expect the Warriors to remind everyone why they are heavy favorites in this series, despite the absence of superstar Kevin Durant.
