Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets Game 2 Semifinals. The NBA Playoff Pick for this match is the Denver Nuggets -3.5. Portland Center Jusuf Nurkic would have leveled the field if he is healthy and plays for the team, unfortunately, he won’t be with a fractured left leg. And there is no response with the Joker’s onslaught. An over in the totals is the trend on Denver’s last 7 games this season – expect an over to ensue in this contest. Predicted to win in a high scoring ball game is the Nuggets at 113-109.
