Ron's NBA Thursday Alley-Oop
Portland Trail Blazers at Denver Nuggets
Thursday, August 06, 2020 at 8:00 pm
The Blazers take on the Nuggets on Thursday night in the bubble.
The Trail Blazers are still very much in the playoff race in the Western Conference, and the team has played well so far in the bubble. Guys like Carmelo Anthony and Jusuf Nurkic have stepped up big time for Portland. The Nuggets are playing in their second game of a back-to-back, and I think the Blazers can pull out a win in this one. Portland is treating every game like a must-win playoff game, and I like Damian Lillard and company to earn a comfortable win in this one. If Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, and Will Barton all do not play for Denver, it is only an added bonus.
Take Portland and lay the chalk.
