Preview: Warriors vs. Trail Blazers start time and TV channel

The Golden State Warriors lead the NBA 16-2 despite missing their All-Starguard Klay Thompson and young center prospect James Wiseman. Meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers are battling 10-9, and star guard Damian Lillard is not keeping his usual high standards, at least according to Blazers Edge:

Through 17 games, Portland’s All Star shoots 40.2% off the field, which is a drastic low point in his career. It is overshadowed by his 30.8% success rate from the three-point arc. For reference, 34.3% is the lowest grade Lillard has ever recorded in a season.

Thanks to a couple of giant games, Lillard has an average of 21.8 PPG. It’s impressive, but it’s also his lowest grade since 2014-15, when he played alongside LaMarcus Aldridge and tried 2.4 fewer shots per game. match.

Lillard has an average of 7 fewer points this season than last, while he only takes 1 field goal attempt less per game. match. It’s something of a fall.

All these years with Lillard and Portland have apparently still not figured out how to put enough complementary talent around him; if he fights, so does the team. On the other hand, the Warriors benefit from a group dynamic around twice the MVP candidate, where the team can survive if he is gone.

Stephen Curry vs Lillard is the box office and this will be a great game between two franchises that have often clashed during the Splash Bros era.
