Recap: Blazers Lose Close One To Nuggets, 116-113

Nikola Jokic outplayed Jusuf Nurkic as the Nuggets held off the Blazers Sunday night. The Portland Trail Blazers showed up and competed but fell just short of pulling off the upset against the Denver Nuggets, falling 116-113 on the road in a thrilling back-and-forth contest. Clutch buckets from Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum in the final minute gave the Blazers a fighting chance to steal what would have been a meaningful victory against the current Western Conference leader, but a key offensive rebound by Jamal Murray in the waning seconds allowed Denver to survive.

Harkless (Left Knee Soreness) OUT vs. Bulls

The same knee Harkless had surgery on in March is giving the forward problems again.
