Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trail Blazers. The NBA pick for this game is the Golden State Warriors. The Golden State Warriors have been playing impressively in their recent games, putting themselves in a good position to secure a guaranteed spot in the postseason without having to compete in the play-in tournament. Their upcoming game against the Portland Trail Blazers presents an even more advantageous situation for the Warriors as Portland is dealing with injuries and will be playing the second game of a back-to-back, and are out of contention for the playoffs.

The Warriors’ relatively healthy roster at this point in the season makes them a dangerous team to face in the postseason, and they will be looking to end the regular season on a high note with a comfortable win over a Portland team that has little left to play for. Based on their recent form, the prediction is that Golden State will win with a score of 117-109.
