What to Know

The Denver Nuggets and the Portland Trail Blazers will face off in a Northwest Division clash at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 14 at Ball Arena. Denver is out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.

The Atlanta Hawks typically have all the answers at home, but this past Friday the Nuggets proved too difficult a challenge. Denver walked away with a 105-96 win. The top scorers for Denver were power forward Aaron Gordon (23 points) and center Nikola Jokic (22 points). That makes it four consecutive games in which Nikola Jokic has had at least 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, after constant struggles on the road, Portland has finally found some success away from home. They took down the Houston Rockets 104-92 this past Friday. Point guard Damian Lillard (20 points) was the top scorer for Portland.

The Nuggets are the favorite in this one, with an expected 6-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 2-4 against the spread when favored.

Denver didn’t have too much trouble with the Trail Blazers on the road when the two teams previously met in June as they won 126-115. Denver’s victory shoved Portland out of the playoffs, so they have a target on their back.
