The Nuggets, which ranks 28th in the league in points allowed (104.7), have to do a better job defensively at home, where they have lost back-to-back games. Overall, Denver has lost seven of its last eight assignments including the last two against the Chicago Bulls, 117-89 and Sacramento Kings, 109-95.

Meanwhile, the Trail Blazers have won two of their last three games post all-star break despite playing without main man LaMarcus Aldridge, who is still out because of a groin injury.
Portland went to their other all-star in point guard Damian Lillard who has led the team in scoring in the last two games. He had 28 points in the 102-94 win versus the Utah Jazz and 32 markers in the 108-97 victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
