Nuggets vs. Trail Blazers: Denver heads to Portland on a roll

Doug Pensinger

Riding a three-game winning streak, the Nuggets head to Portland to take on a streaking Trail Blazers squad.

The Denver Nuggets will try to win their fourth consecutive game as they take on the Portland Trail Blazers at the Rose Garden on Thursday night.

The Nuggets (14-12) have been on fire during their three-game winning streak, averaging 111.0 points per game and shooting an impressive 49.8 percent from the floor. Denver scored a season-high 122 points in a win over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday and dropped 112 on the San Antonio Spurs in an upset win on Tuesday night.

The Blazers (11-12) are riding a three-game winning streak of their own, highlighted by a 98-90 win over the Sours last Thursday. Portland will be without leading-scorer LaMarcus Aldridge, who rolled his ankle in the team's 95-94 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday.

Tipoff is slated for 8 p.m. MT and the game will be televised on Altitude. The radio broadcast will be carried by 104.3 FM and AM-950.
