Damian Lillard Predicts "Blazers In Six" Vs Warriors In First Round
The Blazers are now underdogs against a Warriors team that boasts Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Somehow, the Warriors' 67-win season felt underwhelming coming off last year's National Basketball Association record 73 wins.
No one was injured, and damage was limited to the roof of the Via Bellagio shops.
