Serbian center Nikola Jokić contributed to the Nuggets’ triumph with 29 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists. The Nuggets defeated Portland for the second time in just three days, continuing their pursuit of the top spot in the Western Conference of the NBA, which is still shared with Oklahoma, Minnesota, and the Los Angeles Clippers. Unlike the previous match, one of the worst teams in the West showed their teeth to the current champions.

The Trail Blazers led for almost 36 minutes, had a lead of up to 14 points early in the second quarter, but Denver took the lead for the first time at the end of the third quarter and did not relent.
