Who’s Playing

Denver @ Portland

Current Records: Denver 9-8; Portland 9-8

What to Know

The Portland Trail Blazers haven’t won a contest against the Denver Nuggets since May 29th, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Tuesday. The Trail Blazers will take on Denver at 10 p.m. ET at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter after having had a few days off. Portland is out to keep their eight-game home win streak alive.

Portland netted a 118-111 win over the Philadelphia 76ers this past Saturday. Point guard Damian Lillard continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, picking up 39 points and seven assists in addition to three blocks.

Meanwhile, Denver was expected to have a tough go of it on Sunday, and that’s exactly how things played out. Their bruising 126-97 defeat to the Phoenix Suns might stick with them for a while. Denver was down 100-78 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Shooting guard Will Barton had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with ten points on 4-for-15 shooting in his 28 minutes on the court.

The Trail Blazers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. There could be an interesting gambling play in this one, as they have done quite well against the spread at home this season while the Nuggets have struggled against the spread on the road.

Portland found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 124-95 punch to the gut against Denver in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month. Maybe Portland will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
