Denver
Portland

[PORTLAND] — The Portland Trail Blazers played host to the Denver Nuggets last night and the Blazers did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 122-113 victory. The win bumps Portland's record up to 36-38 on the season, while the loss drags Denver's down to 35-39. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Trail Blazers. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

An impressive performance from Jusuf Nurkic led all players in the contest and his 33 points, 16 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks and 0 steals in 33 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Ask anybody, however - Nurkic included - and the most important part is that the Trail Blazers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Nurkic in the winning effort was C.J. McCollum. Had it not been for McCollum rounding out the Blazers's attack with 39 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Trail Blazers walking away victorious was Portland's ability to limit Denver's offensive output. By holding the Nuggs to less than they usually produce the Trail Blazers made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Blazers will be a date with the Houston Rockets while the visiting Nuggets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Charlotte Hornets.
