What to Know

The Portland Trail Blazers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last four games, but now they must head out on the road. The Trail Blazers and the Denver Nuggets will face off in a Northwest Division battle at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday at Ball Arena. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous games.

Portland didn’t have too much trouble with the Dallas Mavericks at home on Sunday as they won 140-123. Portland’s point guard Damian Lillard did his thing and had 40 points and six assists. The contest made it Dame’s fifth in a row with at least 30 points.

Meanwhile, Denver skirted by the Orlando Magic 119-116 on Sunday thanks to a clutch 30-foot three from center Nikola Jokic with 0:01 left to play. Denver’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of Jokic, who posted a triple-double on 17 points, 14 assists, and ten boards, and power forward Aaron Gordon, who had 25 points and five assists along with eight rebounds. Jokic now has 12 triple-doubles this year.

Portland is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

The Trail Blazers ended up a good deal behind the Nuggets when they played in the teams’ previous meeting last month, losing 120-107. Can Portland avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
