The Dubs have won four straight against Portland, including a stirring 118-112 victory in Chase Center on Gary Payton II’s ring night.
But since then the Dubs are battling adversity. Face of the franchise Stephen Curry is out with a lower leg injury that will sideline him for several games.

The Dubs are coming off a big win over the Oklahoma City Thunder that saw the resurgence of Super Klay Thompson.

They’re going to need another performance like that to knock off the Blazers, who are hungry for a win after dropping two straight to the Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls.
