Lillard and the Blazers have their work cut out for them.
Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers finished in the eighth seed in the Western Conference which means they'll be heading to Oracle Arena this weekend for the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
After last night's regular season finale, a reporter asked Lillard, an Oakland native, "Blazers in six or seven?" to which Lillard replied, "Blazers in six."
The two teams met four times during the regular season and Golden State was victorious every time. Still, what'd you expect Dame to say, "Warriors in five?"
Golden State made quick work of the Blazers in the second round of last year's playoffs as well, advancing to the Conference Finals in just five games. Needless to say, Damian Lillard and co. have their work cut out for them.
Game 1 will tip off on Sunday afternoon at 3:30pm EST. Check out the full tv schedule below for the Blazers vs Warriors series.
