Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets will play again today, June 3, at 8:00 pm (ET) at the Moda Center in Portland for the first round of the 2020/21 NBA playoffs. Here, you'll find all the match information, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game.
Nuggets and Blazers are coming off a double-overtime thriller that's easily been the most exciting game of this playoffs. Damian Lillard went video game mode but he couldn't single-handedly lead his team to a win.
Now, the Blazers face elimination for the first time in this series and will look to even things up and force Game 7 at home. For that, they'll need a better performance from Jusuf Nurkic, who's fouled out 3 out of 5 times this series.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets: Storylines
The Portland Trail Blazers are a flawed team. They just can't get stops. They have enough firepower and a superstar like Damian Lillard but they can't always rely on him scoring 40 or 50 points just to keep them afloat.
The Denver Nuggets have done an outstanding job of competing at the highest level despite all their injuries. Then again, they know that they need to close this series out as playing seven games - including a double-overtime one - will be exhausting for them going forward.
