The Western Conference of the NBA will see a sixth game being played between Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers in the Semi-Finals on Friday.
Denver Nuggets were touted to be ousted in the first round of the playoffs even though they were the second seed in the NBA. The team has been in incredible form, and have levelled up exponentially since the regular season got over. The franchise has been winning games with ease, and if anyone has got a character to fight on till nothing’s left, it is this side. With stars such as Paul Millsap, Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray, the team has got some serious players, who have been giving it their all for the winning cause.
Meanwhile, Portland Trail Blazers have got themselves some work cut out for themselves as they are trailing this series by a 3-2 scoreline. The franchise needs to deliver big time in this game in their own backyard in order to back on the same terms. The team has looked a bit off sometimes, and do lack the firepower and motivation they possessed in the first round. Damian Lillard needs to raise his hand and take some responsibility, as he too has been a bit slow. He needs to make more shots for himself and his teammates if they have any hopes of doing anything at all here.
