The Western Conference could not be more bunched up. Only three game separate Portland in third place and Denver in 9th. The Nuggets have to get this game on their home court if they are going to complete this resurgent season.
Portland has been having a really good year but if they don’t close strong they could find themselves having to take on the Rockets of the Warriors sooner than they would like.
Portland Trail Blazers
I know it is tight in the West but the Trail Blazers shold be given some props for where they are right now. I would have never predicted that they would be in the upper half of the conference.
Portland has one of the more underrated players in the game in Damian Lillard. I know he is a top scorer but it is amazing how we can dominate a quarter especially late. He is better at getting players more involved too.
Since Portland doesn’t need this one as much they are likely to take things easy. One of the their key rotation players, Ed Davis, is unlikley to suit up and Mo Harkless is out too. That makes them a lot smaller.
Portland is a good defensive team though so perhaps they can be competitive with Denver without having to go crazy. The game could have a good flow to it.
I like this Portlnd team and the NBAis all about matchups. This is one where I expect the Trail Blazers to thrive. They are going to make it tough for Denver.
The Nuggets are having a nice season. I thought they would be comfortably in the playoffs but now they are going to have to win a few games to punch their ticket. They can do it though.
Denver is kind of the opposite of Portland in that they are one of the highest scoring teams in the league. They can bomb away from the outside for sure but thanks to Nikola Jurkic they can also score close to the basket. He is a marvel and coming off a triple double.
Will Barton is one of the best scorers in the league. I say scorer because he doesn’t offer much else but he can score a ton and they are willing to let him. I will say he helps with their confidence because he believes in himself, probably more than his career numbers justify.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Nuggets are trying to make their run without the services of Gary Harris. He is a key cog, especially against a team with a good backcourt like Portland has.
This is going to be one on the coach for Denver. They kind of have to have it and they are at home so there isn’t much of an excuse. Just get it done.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets -4
I think the Nuggets play to form and get the win. When they do they should cover too.
