SportTrail Blazers vs. Nuggets: Live score, Game 7 updates, highlights from 2019 NBA playoffs
The story behind Trail Blazers' coaches wearing bow ties in Game 2 vs. Nuggets
The Portland coaching staff displayed support for video coordinator/development coach Jon Yim, who was injured in an auto accident last week.
It makes sense that the Trail Blazers and Nuggets would need a Game 7 to decide their second-round playoff series.
Four of the first six playoff games between Portland and Denver were decided by eight points or less, and the overall scoring margin in the series is just 17 points (Nuggets 696, Trail Blazers 679). It will all come down to a final 48 minutes at the Pepsi Center on Sunday afternoon (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC).
TRAIL BLAZERS VS. NUGGETS:
The star performances could ultimately determine who will meet the Warriors in the Western Conference finals. Nuggets center Nikola Jokic is averaging 26.8 points, 14.0 rebounds and 8.7 assists in the series, and Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is pouring in 27.2 points per game to go with 5.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds.
Trail Blazers' Enes Kanter will observe Ramadan during playoffs
Enes Kanter will fast for Ramadan starting Monday, the center told the New York Times recently. During Ramadan, Kanter, whose Trail Blazers are taking on the Nuggets in a second-round series, will eat breakfast at 4 a.m. before fasting from sunrise until sunset, he told the Times. During the fast, Kanter will not eat, drink or take medicine for his separated shoulder. Kanter has fasted during the holiday while playing basketball for at least 10 years, he said, but this is the first time it has overlapped with the postseason for him.
With so much focus on Jokic and Lillard, it's possible an unsung hero could emerge in Game 7. Blazers guard Rodney Hood has been terrific off the bench and could give Portland a boost with some timely scoring. Nuggets forward Paul Millsap has been solid on both ends and could be a matchup problem in the post. The 13-year veteran has been through plenty of playoff wars and won't be scared of the moment.
