The Western Conference finals are here.
The Warriors and Blazers are meeting in the playoffs for the third time in five years with a ticket to the NBA Finals on the line. The Warriors eliminated Portland in 2016 and 2017 and will look to do the same here in 2019. Golden State, who will be playing without superstar Kevin Durant for at least Games 1 and 2, will rely on the core of their 2015 championship team for their production: Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala.
Meanwhile, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum lead the Blazers in hopes of preventing the Warriors from a three-peat. Portland came from behind to stun Denver in Game 7 of their second-round NBA playoff series and now enters the Western Conference finals as the heavy underdogs with nothing to lose.
Here's how you can watch Warriors-Blazers Game 1 on television, as well as NBC Sports Bay Area's "SNC: Warriors Playoff Central" pregame and postgame coverage live on the MyTeams by NBC Sports app.
