CJ netted the high score for
the Blazers
The Mile High City was bloody popping last night, pun intended, but more on that later as the Denver Nuggets were in search of the 2 – 0 series lead against the Portland Trailblazers and both teams held their own in the 1st period, but the 2nd painted a different picture. Speaking of painting, Nuggets guard Torrey Craig suffered a broken nose in the 2nd period and all he saw was red from his bloody nose. He had a nose issue earlier in the season, so he already had a fitted mask which allowed him to return to the lineup and was effective. Back to the 2nd period, as the Nuggets could only muster 12 points and the Blazers scored 10 more to take a 50 – 35 lead into the half. The Nuggets came out more aggressive in the 2nd and their shots were falling as they were able to cut into the lead. A little skirmish ensued in the 4th as Enes Kanter, from a push from Nikola Jokic, bumped into Craig and his cracked nose and Kanter and Jamal Murray had to be separated and both were issued double technical. But at the end of the day, the Blazers behind CJ McCollum’s 20 points,  Kanter’s 15 and 9 rebounds and 33 bench points, the Blazers even up the series 1 – 1 against the Nuggets with 97 – 90 victory.

Gesson Rosas makes
Latino American History! 
For your Quick NBA News & Notes, Latino American History was made when the Minnesota Timberwolves hired Houston Rockets executive Gersson Rosas as their President of Basketball Operations as he becomes the NBA’s first Latino top basketball executive and finally, James Harden of the Houston Rockets, who suffered a laceration on his left eyelid in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semi’s against the Golden State Warriors, tests revealed that there is no damage to either of his corneas.
