What you should know

The Portland Trail Blazers are on the road again on Friday, playing the Denver Nuggets at 9:00 PM ET on December 23rd at the Ball Arena. If the game is anything like Denver’s 121-120 win from their previous meeting in December, the goalie will be kept very busy.

It looks like the Trail Blazers must have ended up on Santa’s naughty list because the squad didn’t end up with the win they were expected to receive on Wednesday. They fell just short to the Oklahoma City Thunder by a score of 101-98. The loss was just more heartbreak for Portland, which has now lost five straight to the Thunder. Top scorers for Portland were power forward Jerami Grant (17 points) and point guard Damian Lillard (16 points).

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies usually have all the answers at home, but on Tuesday, Denver proved too difficult a challenge. The stars shone brightly for Denver in a 105-91 victory over the Grizzlies. It was another big night for Nuggets power forward Aaron Gordon, who had 24 points to go with seven rebounds.

The Trail Blazers are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. However, those who like to bet on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 10-5-2 against the spread when they are expected to lose.

Denver’s win lifted them to 19-11 while Portland’s loss dropped them to 17-15. We’ll see if Denver can repeat its recent success or if Portland bounces back and turns its fortunes around.
