The Warriors enter the series without Curry for at least a week or so. The Blazers are coming off a series win over the Clippers thanks to injuries to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. Portland is a tough team, but the Warriors are still quite a talented group even without Curry. They were still able to hand Houston without Curry and should be able to ride the momentum of being at home to a win and a cover.
