Post splitting the first two games, the Denver Nuggets did manage to regain their home advantage over the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday. In what was another thrilling encounter, the Nuggets did manage to register a 120-115 win in Game 3 and will be eager to take a 3-1 lead back to Denver. However, they will be wary of Portland Trail Blazers leader Damian Lillard, who has been absolutely brilliant in the attack so far. While Lillard is the leading scorer in the American Basketball League Playoffs, Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic hasn’t been far from him either.
It’s a thrilling series so far and it’s pretty difficult to predict who will win this contest. However, this becomes a must-win contest for the Portland Trail Blazers and they have to find a way to stop Denver Nuggets’ efficient and consistent scoring in the campaign. Despite little to choose between the sides, Portland Trail Blazers may have that added edge of playing on home court and would give it their all to up the series again before heading back to Denver. Nikola Jokic for the Nuggets and Damian Lillard for Trail Blazers will be the key players to watch for out in this game.
