The first-round playoff matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers is almost certain to be a high-scoring series, and it also appears it will be a trash-talking series.

Warriors forward Draymond Green, known for being verbally provocative, had a few verbal confrontations with Trail Blazers guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum in Game 1 on Sunday afternoon, and all three players welcome it. “For me, it’s just going to make me raise the level of my game because I take [Green’s trash talk] as a challenge,” Lillard said after his team’s 121-109 loss. “I’m going to take exception to it, and I’m going to say something back. That’s what it’s going to be, as long as that’s how he’s approaching it — it’s going to be coming right back.”
