Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets - Game Five

In this episode, I share my detailed notes on Game 5 between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers made a key matchup adjustment and it had the opposite effect as they were hoping. I talk about how switching Enes Kanter onto Paul Millsap backfired despite Kanter “knowing all of Millsap’s moves.” The Denver bench also may have found a new plan of attack. Damian Lillard played like a superstar but it didn’t even move the needle. And Juancho Hernangomez even got his moment in the spotlight.
