POR vs GSW Dream11: Portland Trail Blazers start their four-game home run with the game against the injury-hit Golden State Warriors at Moda Center on Tuesday morning (IST). The Blazers have failed to build on the success of last season when they made all the way to the Western Conference finals, where they came short against the Warriors, who are not the same now due to injuries and key departures. With the Blazers hardly hitting a decent consistent level this season, they know the margin of error is becoming smaller with each defeat. As things stand, they are down at 11th with 18-26 record this season.
Golden State Warriors, on the other hand, are propping up the table. With the playoffs hopes dashed and dead, the Dubs are playing and building for the next season already.
