Blazers Outlast Nuggets In 4OT Marathon To Take 2-1 Series Lead

  • Long-distance shots made by Damian Lillard in the first round of the NBA Playoffs

In the first 4OT game in the NBA Playoffs during the shot clock era (1954-55) and second 4OT game in NBA Playoffs history (Boston vs. Syracuse, March 21, 1953 Game 2 Eastern Division Semifinals), the Trail Blazers defeated the Nuggets 140-137 to take a 2-1 lead in this best-of-7 series. The Blazers did not provide a status update for Kanter ahead of Sunday's Game 4. Nikola Jokic recorded 33 points (13-25 FG), 18 rebounds and 14 assists in 65 minutes of play. But the Nuggets probably can't count on him staying at that level Sunday after he played the fourth-most minutes in National Basketball Association playoff history in Game 3, falling just two short of the record, so other players have to take on some of his usual load.

"I have no idea what happened in the first half, or the second half, or the first three overtimes", he said.

CJ McCollum led all scorers with 41 points. Clutch free throws from Seth Curry sealed the deal. On Wednesday during Portland's Game 2 win over the Nuggets, Kanter was the target of an incredibly insensitive remark from a member of the Denver crowd.

Hood used his size to bury two pull up jumpers over the smaller Jamal Murray, before draining the go-ahead three-pointer with 17.8 seconds remaining.

Portland center Enes Kanter said the Blazers feel "confident" going into Game 3. "Shooters shoot, but at the same time we're still shooting and they're not going down", he said. Despite Denver's having uncharacteristically a rough game on Wednesday night, they still had a chance to come back and beat Portland in the fourth quarter.

Millsap's jumper with 32 seconds left gave the Nuggets a 129-125 lead in the third overtime, but Lillard's bank shot closed the gap and he added a layup that re-tied it again with 8.4 seconds left. We are still in a good position. With 1:18 left and the score tied, Jokic forced a pass across the court that was stolen and one overtime stretched into four. And then he played three more overtime periods, without a rest.

Avatar held the previous record, but that film required a whopping 47 days to earn $ 2 billion . Avengers: Endgame is on track to become the highest grossing movie of all time.

"There were a couple of moments when I thought we had the game", Malone said.

The Nuggets called Craig's injury a nasal contusion.

The comment has Blazers center Enes Kanter asking the Nuggets to "take control of your fans". I can't do that to him, that's too many minutes. All Toronto's players need to step up more in support of Leonard but the point guard in particular acknowledged he needed to be better after a dismal 2-for-10, seven-point performance in Game 3.

The two teams will have less than 48 hours to recuperate and prepare for Game 4, which is set for a 4 p.m.
