After dropping Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals to the top-seeded Golden State Warriors, the Trail Blazers have another chance to steal away home court in Game 2 Thursday night at Oracle Arena before the series shifts to Portland. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.
Despite little going right for the Trail Blazers in Game 1, they still managed to go into the fourth quarter down six points. But the Warriors outscored the Blazers by 16 in the fourth quarter to turn a close game into a blowout.
"As much as we turned the ball over, the shots that we allowed them to get up, and to be going into the fourth quarter and still be a game, that shows that, if we're just a little bit better, that game is going to be much closer down the stretch," said Damian Lillard.
