Portland the 6-seed will travel to Denver the 3-seed, looking to take advantage of a Denver team that has been without the star guard Jamal Murray for over a month. Nikola Jokic is well on his way to an MVP, but there is doubt about the Nuggets ability to hang with Portland’s back court.
Trail Blazers are a 1-point underdog on the Oregon Lottery Scoreboard App.
