NBA Finals Live stream NBA Finals Game 1 Match Starts Oracle Arena, Oakland Live Streaming Here today at 9:00 PM ET. NBA Finals 2017 a Big Match Again. The Cleveland Cavaliers host the Golden State Warriors at 9:00 p.m. Thursday night in Game 1 of the first game of the NBA Finals 2017 at the Oracle Arena, Oakland. The Warriors and Cavaliers is the First Game in Finals 2017.
The Blazers, who have labeled the game a “must win,” insist they remain confident heading into Game 3, even though they’ve lost the first two meetings by an average of 20.5 points. It doesn’t hurt that they’ve been in this situation before.
Last season, in the first round against the Los Angeles Clippers, the Blazers lost the first two outings by an average of 20.5 points before rallying in Game 3 and eventually winning the series in six games.
But if the Blazers are to duplicate that remarkable run, they likely will have to do so without Jusuf Nurkic. The team’s starting center, who hasn’t played since suffering a non-displaced fracture in his right leg on March 28, is listed as doubtful for Game 3.
The Warriors are also dealing with injuries to key players. All-Star Kevin Durant (left calf), Shaun Livingston (index finger) and Matt Barnes (right foot) are listed as questionable tonight. The trio did not play in Golden State’s 110-81 victory in Game 2.
The Warriors rolled to a 29-point win over the Trail Blazers in Game 2 without Kevin Durant. Draymond Green has terrorized Portland on both ends of the floor through two games. Green is averaging a triple-double while the Trail Blazers’ frontcourt has offered very little.
Portland has now lost all six games against Golden State this season by an average margin of 19.8 points. The health of Jusuf Nurkic remains questionable. Kevin Durant is also a question mark for Game 3 as he recovers from a calf strain in his left leg.
