The Golden State Warriors head to Portland to take on the Blazers in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.
The Warriors survived a scare in Game 2 with the Blazers leading most of the match only for once again, Stephen Curry, to hit some big-time shots late in the Game. The Warriors won by 3, 114 to 111 and will be looking to almost seal the series in Game 3.

Golden State Warriors 2 @ Portland Trail Blazers 0
Prediction – Game Total Under 222.5
Golden State (Win)
The Portland Trail Blazers did their best to try and stop the Warriors in Game 2 but Klay Thompson, Steph Curry, and Draymond Green were all simply too good.
If the Blazers are any chance in Game 3 they will have to bring it on the defensive end and try and force as many turnovers as possible from the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors are 28-1 when Curry plays and Durant sits and the Warriors have not needed the offensive firepower from Durant in the last few games. Thompson and Draymond Green along with Andre Iguodala have all stepped up to help the Warriors to a 2 nil lead.
The first two games have been fairly slow paced contests and expect much the same here with defense being the key to having any chance of stopping the Warriors.
The Warriors just look too good at the moment and should win this game in a lower scoring affair.
Andre Iguodala + 9.5 Points
Iguodala has been playing a lot of minutes and will get plenty of chances to score with the Blazers putting so much pressure on the Splash Brothers. He should score in double figures in this game and get a lot of open three point looks.
Draymond Green + 7.5 Assists
Green has been playing very well this playoffs and a lot of the Warriors plays will once again go through the hands of Green. He can rack up dimes quick with so many good shooters around him. Will definitely be around the number once again.
Al-Farouq Aminu + 7.5 Points
The Blazers have not been using Aminu a lot but may need to to try and generate another option offensively in this game. He is a good rebounder and if he plays 25+ minutes should score in double figures in a must-win contest for the Blazers.
