After a sluggish, low-scoring Game 2 that saw the Portland Trail Blazers even their NBA Western Conference semifinal playoff series against the second-seeded Denver Nuggets, the series moves to the Moda Center where Portland will try to press their advantage after the win on Denver’s home court. The Nuggets, on the other hand, will need to find a way to revive their shooting game after a 34.7 percent performance in Game 2, according to NBA.com. While Denver put five players into double figures, only center Nikola Jokic managed as many as 16 points. But Denver’s defense also held Portland under 100 points, a trend they’ll try to continue in Game 3, which will live stream from Portland, Oregon.

The matchup gets underway at 7:30 p.m. PT at the 19,980-seat Moda Center at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon, on Sunday, April 14.

Despite the loss, Denver took several positive signs from Game 2 that they will hope to use on Portland’s home court as well. Defensively, they held Portland star Damian Lillard to just 14 points, while beating Portland on the boards, 58-47, according to NBA.com.
But Portland remains confident, according to Lillard.
“They say the series starts when someone wins a game on the road and we were able to do that,” he told NBA.com. “Our goal is to just take it one game at a time and protect our home floor.”
