How to watch Trail Blazers vs. Nuggets: Live stream, TV channel, start time for Sunday’s NBA game


Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the Denver Nuggets and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Portland Trail Blazers 87-70.

Denver has been relying on the performance of center Nikola Jokic, who has almost posted a triple-double on 18 boards, 11 dimes, and eight points. A double-double would be Jokic’s 15th in a row.

Portland hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to 14 points or fewer.

they have lost 83% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this season, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know

The Portland Trail Blazers head home again on Sunday, but with the point spread against them by 8.5 points, it might not be quite the welcoming they would prefer. They will take on the Denver Nuggets at 9 p.m. ET at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter after having had a few days off. Denver will be strutting in after a win while the Trail Blazers will be stumbling in from a loss.

It’s never fun to lose, and it’s even less fun to lose 132-95, which was the final score in Portland’s tilt against the Golden State Warriors this past Thursday. Rip City was down 100-73 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Shooting guard Anfernee Simons (24 points) was the top scorer for Portland.

Meanwhile, it was all tied up 59-59 at the half for the Nuggets and the Sacramento Kings this past Saturday, but Denver stepped up in the second half for a 115-110 victory. The top scorers for Denver were power forward Aaron Gordon (23 points) and point guard Monte Morris (21 points).

Portland is now 25-35 while Denver sits at 35-25. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Rip City has allowed their opponents to shoot 47.30% from the floor on average, which is the fifth highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. The Nuggets’ offense has more to brag about, as they they come into the matchup boasting the third highest field goal percentage in the league at 47.40%. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
