Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets Prediction
Portland has been quite steady for the past three games. Lillard has played better and has scored the ball better. Nurkic is averaging good amount of rebounds and McCollum shooting well from three. With the Joker potentially seated out for the game this would their best opening to inch their way higher up for the leader board. Portland with their groove is something worth seeing especially because of Lillards way of playing breaking records after records and dominating his opponents. Portland has the odds stacked towards them in this one.
