Portland is unsure of Jusuf Nurkic's status for Game 1

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

When: Sunday, 3:30 p.m. But all games were played before the Blazers turned things around after the All-Star break. As for the Blazers, the duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum is looking to pull off the biggest first-round upset in recent National Basketball Association history.

The Portland Trail Blazers have been scorching hot towards the end of the season.

Last season with Steph Curry injured, the Warriors eliminated Portland 4-1 in a playoff series.

Damian Lillard was wrong about the Blazers beating the Warriors in six. The Trail Blazers sat a total of five players Monday night due to injury.

Portland finished the season at 41-41, while Golden State rolled to a 67-15 mark. After trading for Jusef Nurkic from the Denver Nuggets, they proceeded to chase down Denver for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. After upsetting the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, Portland lost to the Warriors in five games in the second round. He believes that the Blazers can shock the world and they can eliminate the Warriors in the first round. Somehow, the Warriors' 67-win season felt underwhelming coming off last year's National Basketball Association record 73 wins.

The Warriors begin their march toward a third straight NBA Finals on Sunday, and the first team on the road is the Trail Blazers. Portland made every game with Golden State competitive during round two of the 2016 playoffs, and the Warriors should expect nothing different this time around.
