Will Warriors sweep? Golden State 1 win away from 5th straight NBA Finals

Bay Area

OAKLAND (KRON) — The Golden State Warriors are one win away from going to their fifth straight NBA Finals. 

The Warriors are looking to complete a sweep of their Western Conference final series against the Trail Blazers Monday in Portland.

No team has ever rallied to win an NBA playoff series after losing the first three games.

The Warriors came back from an 18-point deficit to win Game 3 on Saturday.

The Trail Blazers are going to need more from Damian Lillard to get back in the series, and the star guard is playing though a rib injury.

Lillard had 19 points in Saturday’s loss, well off the 33 he averaged in Portland’s first-round series against the Thunder. He has been double-teamed often with the Warriors keying in on him.

Since 2015, the Warriors have won three NBA Championships.
