Portland has a 19-16 record at the Moda Center this season. They have lost both of their previous matchups against Denver. Historically, losses of that magnitude are difficult to compartmentalize in such short timing. But, the Blazers, a team often lauded for their mental toughness, seek to do just that. The Nuggets could enter Sunday with much to play for, with the Western Conference’s No. 3 seed still within grasp. The Blazers can still finish as high as No. 5, but their potential fates also lie in the hands of the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers.

Fentress’ piece also discusses some of the happenings of Thursday’s loss, including Portland’s thoughts on the officiating and their failed late-game execution. “This one is over,” Lillard said. “We got to make sure that we get this last one. So, it does no good to hold on to this game and go out there and not be locked in for the next one because the last game of the season is now the most important game of the season. So, we’ve got to move on and make sure that we handle our business at home.”
