Nuggets Face Blazers in the Second Round of the Playoffs
The Nuggets are moving on to the second round of the NBA playoffs for the first time in ten years. They will play the Portland Trailblazers in game one, Monday night at the Pepsi Center.
Although the celebration will be short lived with the next game hours away, Paul Millsap told the Associated Press that he was going to celebrate anyway.
“I’ve learned over the years you take your accomplishments and you celebrate them. Tonight, celebrate...This is a big accomplishment for this team, big accomplishment for this organization. You’ve got to celebrate it. A lot of people didn’t give us a chance to win.”
The first game Monday night at the Pepsi Center might be different than the last time the teams met because of injuries. In March the Blazers lost Jusuf Nurkic to a season ending leg injury. Portland's Enes Kanter is also questionable Monday night because of a shoulder injury.
Watch the game on TNT at 8:30 p.m. or in person at the Pepsi Center. Tickets still available at the tweet below.
