Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Pelicans are ready to play against Trail Blazers as the last game of this National Basketball Association season at Moda Center, Portland. 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 dates, times, and TV schedule for the 2017 NBA Playoffs are listed below, laying out the Portland Trail Blazers vs.

"I was asked in six or seven [games], and I said six".

The Blazers and Warriors will begin their series Sunday. The Warriors had four members of the Western Conference All-Star team in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Kevin Durant, while the Blazers had zero All-Stars this year.

In the latest injury report for the Portland Trail Blazers, a number of key players were listed.

The Portland Trail Blazers made the playoffs for a fourth straight season and have won 12 of their last 16 games.

This season, Portland comes into the playoffs at 41-41, while Golden State has the best record in the National Basketball Association at 67-15. The Warriors only have to look to themselves to know they need to be careful.

The NBA regular season is already finished which means that NBA Playoffs is about to start.

Regardless of the regular season and the swirling expectations, nothing will come easy for the Warriors because every team in the Western Conference is capable of going deep into the playoffs. The playoffs are a totally different ball game, after all. Golden State should show up ready to play at its highest level every single game and treat each potential series like they're playing for rings.
