Players to watch out for:

Portland Trail Blazers:
Damian Lillard –Portland’s best player by some margin, and it has been the case for a few years now. The team wouldn’t have been here had it not for Damian Lillard’s incredible consistency this season. The 28-year-old is close to 30 points per game in the last 10 matches or so, which shows that he can touch any lofty height in his career. The 2012 round-one pick is averaging 26.3 points per game.

Enes Kanter With Jusuf Nurkic missing out on the action these days, Enes Kanter has done a little bit of scoring of late. That’s because of the increase in the extended minutes on the court he is being given by the head coach.
The 26-year-old has a good record against Denver Nuggets, scoring at 17.0 points per game against them.

Denver Nuggets:
Nikola Jokic – A player with as wide wings as you can imagine. This has been some season for the big Serbian. Not only he is racking up a career-high 20.2 points per game this seaosn, but the 24-year-old is having a two-way effect on the team. Look at any stats, and he is there, making team-high efforts in almost every department. To make matters worse for Portland, he has scored at 27.5 against Blazers.
For Nuggets to go deep in the post-season, Jokic has to continue pouring good numbers.

Jamal Murray – Almost every player on Nuggets roster is having a personal best season. Jamal Murray is one of those players who has taken their game to new heights. The 21-year-old is racking up 18.3 points per game this season.
