April 5, 2018 – Denver Nuggets vs Portland Trailblazers

This game is a must see for me again for personal reasons.  Portland is my hometown.  At one point in my life the Portland Trailblazers were my team.  They will always have a place in my heart though not as big a place as the Denver Nuggets.  I love seeing my now hometown team Denver Nuggets take on my past hometown team Portland Trailblazers.

These matchup are always bittersweet for me and full of confusing emotions.  Who do I really want to win and do I really care who does?  The easy answer to these questions are of course I care and I want the Denver Nuggets to win always.  I just want a good close game.

This game is hopefully good at face value.  It is a divisional rivalry game and the Blazers were a good team last year.  I’d love to see the Denver Nuggets show that they are the better team in this matchup.  Almost equally as important is the fact that this is the first game of a back-to-back against Portland.  If the Denver Nuggets win this one it should carry some momentum into Portland the next day.
