Will he or won't he? Nurkic's return still uncertain

The two-time All-Star playfully responded Portland will take down Golden State in six, which caused a stir on social media.

"Blazers in six", he said, according to The Oregonian. 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 are averaging 107.9 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 108.5 points on 45.5 percent shooting. They are going to face Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors but Lillard is confident that the Blazers will win the series in six games.

If the Blazers beat the Warriors in any games this series, it will be a first for the season.

USA, Canada and Mexico announce joint bid to host tournament
Usually, the host country is automatically included in the field, and the USA and Mexico tend to qualify without help. The 2026 World Cup will feature 48 team tournament, which is an expanded format from the 32 team tournament in 2014.

In the latest injury report for the Portland Trail Blazers, a number of key players were listed. 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. Or maybe the Warriors are going to sleep the Blazers.

Portland finished the season at 41-41, while Golden State rolled to a 67-15 mark. The Warriors only have to look to themselves to know they need to be careful. The Warriors swept the Blazers 4-0 in the regular season. But the Warriors were still by far the best team in the National Basketball Association, and now Kevin Durant is healthy again.

The Trail Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 7-19-2 ATS in their last 28 Conference Quarterfinals games and 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games overall.
