    It'll be a tough back-to-back for the Blazers, as they will be traveling to the higher altitude of Denver.

    Luckily, the Nuggets are suffering from about the amount of injuries as Portland.

    This gives us a legitimate shot to steal this one. And boy, do we need it badly after losing 2 games in a row, and facing the defending champs (Lakers) the game after this.

    This will be the first of 4 consecutive games the Blazers will be on national TV. Can't get blown out here like against the Suns.

    Kanter should be able to lock Jokic down!

    That calf strain sure seems like a pretty bad injury at this point?

    So the higher altitude makes the ball lighter and the players can jump higher right?

    Hey look - the Lakers are in danger of losing to the Wizards at home.....

    Give them two injuries and they fall apart. Amateurs.

    We have a better road record than Denver's home record. Let's get this!! Start a new win streak!

    So I can see this going a few ways. One way is that the ass kicking we just endures lights a big enough fire under our guys and by that I mean Dame, that we make this one competitive and have a very very slim possibility of winning.

    The other two ways are that this loss was demoralizing, the team continues to struggle and...

    A. Denver beats us savagely and wins by an excess of fifteen points or...

    B. The Nuggets lose interest off and on and win by whatever the fuck the spread is... eight.

    My official prediction and I hope I'm as wrong as I was against the Suns but the prediction is Denver by 12. You heard it here... we're not going to kick their asses. Let's hope I'm wrong.
