In this episode of the Locked On Nuggets podcast, I preview the biggest Denver Nuggets game in years. The Nuggets are in Portland to take on Jusuf Nurkic and the Portland Trail Blazers and the stakes couldn’t be higher. Win, and you’ve got the inside track on the 8th seed in the playoffs. Lose, and you’re almost certainly out.

I go over all of the key matchups including Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic, Gary Harris and Damian Lillard, Danilo Gallinari and Moe Harkless, and much more. There are interesting matchups all around the court. There are also some interesting battle grounds including the battle for a hot start, battle of the boards, interesting rotation questions including who will start, and of course, how will players like Jamal Murray respond to the loudest and most intense atmosphere they’ve faced all season?

This is what we play for. A win would be the ultimate high and a loss would be the ultimate low. Get hyped with this episode and be sure to subscribe on iTunes so that you never miss an episode including tomorrow night’s recap episode which will likely feature a few special guests.
