The NBA’s Western Conference will see a third game being played in the semi-finals as Denver Nuggets travel to take on Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.
Denver Nuggets are the second seed in the Western Conference and did really well to get past San Antonio Spurs in the first round. They won that series by a margin of 4-3, and they will be looking to showcase that there is still some fight left in them. The team is coming off a loss, but with the series being levelled, it will be interesting to see how desperately The Nuggets want to succeed in order to prove their status of being an elite side in the NBA.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers fought back and won the second game in the series. The team is one of the better when it comes to shooting threes, but this time they also put on a defensive clinic on their opponents. This is going to help them out in future, as superstar player Damian Lillard has already got the world talking about him. In a clutch situation, all the franchise needs to ensure is that they give him the ball, and hope he takes them to the promise land.
