Victorious in all three of their preseason games so far, the Denver Nuggets will travel to Portland on Wednesday night for an exhibition battle with the Trail Blazers.

The Nuggets are averaging 102.3 points per contest over three games, and picked up a six-point win over Golden State on Monday despite shooting just 39.8% from the field as a team. Although his erratic shooting has not yet hindered his team in the win column, forward Andre Iguodala is hitting just 30% of his shots over his last two games, and has posted seven turnovers.

Set to tip off at 8 p.m. MT, Iguodala and company will take on a Portland team that was flattened for 117 points by Sacramento on Monday, three days after giving up 104 to the Phoenix Suns. With the Blazers slated to make their preseason debut at the Rose Garden after opening their schedule with three consecutive road dates, Denver may very well have a prime opportunity to remain undefeated in exhibition play.
