What If the Trail Blazers Beat the Warriors Tonight?

The Warriors have a perfect home record. Could it fall in semi-unlikely fashion?

As we speak it's T-minus 5 hours until the Portland Trail Blazers meet the Golden State Warriors. With a history-making run through the 2015-16 season and the best homecourt record since Jesus took on leprosy, the Warriors stand on top of the world. Approximately zero people think they won't win the NBA Title for a second season. Exactly two people think the Blazers have a shot at  beating them tonight. (Hello, Mama Lillard and Mama McCollum!) But who can forget Friday, February 19th when the Blazers beat the Warriors 137-105? (You can bet they haven't.) We mustn't overlook the fact that Damian Lillard routinely goes bone-in, full-pork-butt HAM on his hometown squad. He seems to relish playing against Steph Curry and vice versa.

Is there a chance? There's always a chance.

Remember this?

So how about it, Trail Blazers fans? What would it mean if the Blazers broke Golden State's home winning streak tonight? Would it be just another game in a slightly-above-.500 season or would it indicate something more to you? What do you think the national reaction would be?

Share and speculate below as you wait for the opening of our GameDay Thread and tip-off.
