In Game 1, the Portland Trail Blazers played an even match against the Golden State Warriors for the first three quarters, but unraveled in the fourth quarter, losing by 12 points. The pros at Bovada say they’ll need a better effort in the fourth quarter on Wednesday if they’re to tie the series.
After scoring at least 27 points in each of the first three quarters, the Trail Blazers managed just 21 in the fourth. The final score was 121-109 for Golden State. Portland will need more from their supporting cast, as Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum combined for 75 points, while the rest of the team contributed 34.
