Watch Portland Trail Blazers Vs. Denver Nuggets Game 7 Live Stream: Start Time, Preview, NBA West Semifinal

After a back-and-forth series that always looked like out was going to go to a seventh game, the Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets will indeed play that Game Seven, with the prize being a date with the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors in the NBA Western Conference Finals. But Portland will face a fight on the road where they will need a more balanced scoring attack than in their series-saving Game Six, 11-point win — in which just three Trail Blazers accounted for 87, or nearly 75 percent, of their team's 119 points, per CJ McCollum scored 30, Damian Lillard 32, and Rodney Hood 25 in Game Six for Portland, per Basketball Reference. Meanwhile, the Nuggets, who have won just one of their three home games in the series so far, will try to take advantage of the Pepsi Center floor in the game that will live stream from Denver.

The matchup gets underway at 2:30 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time at the 18,000-seat Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, on Sunday, May 12.

The grueling nature of the series has apparently taken its toll on the nerves of players from both teams, resulting in an on-court skirmish in Game Six, with Portland's Seth Curry and Denver's Will Barton getting into a shoving match that quickly involved other players from both teams. But according to ESPN, the league office has decided to forego any disciplinary action against players from either team, allowing Game Seven to be played at full strength.
