Here’s how to watch the Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers game live online and other key info ahead of the matchup.
Blazers have momentum, 2-1 series lead
While LeBron James has been sidelined during the postseason, Damian Lillard has been making a name for himself. He and the Blazers appear to be in the driver’s set with momentum ever since Lillard’s game-winner against the Thunder. Four overtimes were the latest installment in his team’s playoff history.
Lillard wasn’t the hero in that game, though. In the 140-137 4OT thriller, his backcourt mate CJ McCollum finished with 41 points on 16-for-39 shooting. McCollum also had the go-ahead three to help secure his team’s late lead. Lillard still finished with 28 points, eight assists, six rebounds, and two assists in the win.

The Nuggets will hope for a bounce-back win on the road. In the Game 3 losing effort, Nikola Jokic tallied an impressive triple-double of 33 points, 18 boards, and 14 assists. Look for the All-Star to try to take over again tonight along with guard Jamal Murray. If not, this team will be fighting a 1-3 disadvantage in the series.
