Preview

The Denver Nuggets will host the Portland Trail Blazers this Sunday evening for a Northwest Division battle.

Portland Trail Blazers

Portland will go into this one without Damian Lillard, as the start point guard won't suit up due to an abdomen injury.

C.J. McCollum looks like hes on his way to averaging 20+ ppg for the seventh season in a row. McCollum, one of the league's most crafty scorers, will have to shoulder a much bigger load offensively tonight.

The supporting cast in the Northwest is really thin without Carmelo Anthony, but big Jusuf Nurkic gives them a reliable post presence, while Normal Powell and Anfernee Simons are averaging career-highs in points.

Denver Nuggets

Don't look, but the Nuggets are in the midst of a four-game win streak and they enter a very manageable matchup tonite in the Mountains.

Nikola Jokic continues to revolutionize the center position. The reigning MVP has record back-to-back triple doubles, and he's torched Portland historically.

Will Barton and Aaron Gordon should be hunted prop wise, as they may receive a lot of volume tonite. Barton is scoring 16.4, while AG is adding 12.6 ppg and 6.1 rpg.

Monte Morris has been solid in Jamal Murray's point guard slot, scoring 10.6 ppg on 44% shooting.

Prediction

Denver has a really favorable matchup in the Mile High tonite. Portland's road struggles are well documented, and with no Damian Lillard tonite, it doesn't look like they'll end here. Jokic should lead the Nuggets to a victory here, and their fourth straight cover. Take their spread tonite.

PICK: Denver Nuggets -6.5
