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.
