Nikola Jokic, the presumed MVP, and the Nuggets need to play a strong game to tie up the series with Portland in the NBA Western Conference first round series. The Blazers stopped Jokic from setting up his teammates in Game 1 and limited the big center to scoring only. The strategy worked as Portland emerged with a surprise win.
But the talented Nuggets will be ready to answer back tonight in Denver. Michael Porter Jr. has stepped up in the absence of Jamal Murray to provide much needed scoring firepower. Porter Jr. has been hitting his 3s at a 44.5% rate. Aaron Gordon has got to step up also and make his presence felt as a scorer tonight.
The Trail Blazers have a potent 1-2 punch in the backcourt with superstar Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum lighting it up. The Nuggets will have to play better defense against that pair to walk away with a much needed victory.
Will Jokic put the team on his shoulders and go for a triple double tonight?
