Playoff Preview: Denver Nuggets vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Zach Gotlieb | April 29th, 2019

Two teams that continue to surprise from the beginning of the season even to now as we get into the Western Conference Semifinals are facing off in the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs. The Nuggets find themselves in a place the franchise hasn’t been in a decade, the second round. It wasn’t a pretty series, but they now have the playoff experience that they lacked after going seven games and getting past the San Antonio Spurs. The Portland Trail Blazers are another team that is seeming to get hot at the right time.

Clearly, the Western Conference teams were even better than usual this season. Here’s what you can expect from each team in this series.
