The Breakdown: Portland must solve the Denver offensive rebound issue, now

Share

Game 6 from the Moda Center in Portland will tip off at 10:30 p.m. ET. This was likely a big factor why Portland's margin of victory in both games (average of 5.0 points, including a memorable razor-thin Game 3 three-point victory in quadruple overtime) was much lower compared to their 11-point win in Game 6. Nikola Jokic leads the Nuggets in scoring with 29 points while Jamal Murray adds 24. Damian Lillard scores 17 points in the 3rd quarter as he leads the Blazers in scoring with a 32-point performance.

"He waited for a few people to get in between us, and when a few people were in between us, he put his finger in my eye". Rodney Hood provided a difference-making 25 points to keep Portland's season alive.

Nuggets forward Barton gave a different account of the incident. "It's your last opportunity to play, so facing elimination is what it is to me, and that's going to be my approach, just like it was tonight".

Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets will be kicking themselves after missing out on a crucial chance to seal the deal in Game 6.

Perhaps supporting the Sharks will give the 49ers a bit of extra motivation to find the postseason themselves in 2019. Avalanche forward Colin Wilson appeared to score in the second period but was denied after an off-side challenge.

It was not an efficient game for the Nuggets on either side of the ball. Nuggets coach Michael Malone had hoped that both teams would be able to play the decisive game at full strength and he got his wish.

Curry was trying to help a teammate up when Denver's Will Barton took exception to a slight shove, and the two came face to face. We'll let you know everything you didn't know you needed to know about sports. Portland also needs to defend better, and at some point someone's going to need to make a shot.

"That's real sassy. They got a few sassy dudes over there". They'll be extra motivated to push this series to a Game 7 on the Nuggets' home floor on Sunday.

"We probably said some stuff, I don't remember everything in the heat of the moment".
