Portland Trail Blazers Form
Portland missed a chance to take a commanding 3-1 lead as they did not play well in the 2nd half of the last game. The Trail Blazers now to win at least one more time here in Denver.

Also, their 2nd half performances were impressive as they managed to turn around the game. Now they play at home and they will aim to keep the winning momentum to take the series to 3-2. They will have the in-form Jamal Murray as he scored 34 points in the last game.
