The Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets have met twice in the NBA Playoffs before 2019’s Western Conference Semi-Finals.
The last time the two squads faced-off was 1986 when the Nuggets won a first round series, 3-1, back when first round series were a Best-of-5 series.
However, the last time they met in the Conference Semis was 1977, and the Blazers won in six, 4-2, and of course eventually won the whole thing. So, I’m not saying… I’m just saying.
The schedule for this series starts in Denver for Game 1 and 2. Game 3 and 4 return to Portland. Game 5 in Denver, Game 6 in Portland and Game 7 in Denver are all if necessary.
Don’t forget after each game of the Blazers-Nuggets series we’ll have The Last Quarter with Peter Sampson on 102.9/750 The Game.
