Blazers come back to beat Nuggets.
After losing Game 1 to the Nuggets in Denver, the Trail Blazers vowed to turn in a better defensive effort in Game 2. They kept that vow, and are heading back home to Portland with something to show for it.
After the Nuggets shot better than 50 percent in Game 1, the Trail Blazers held Denver to 35 percent shooting to tie their Western Conference Semifinals series with a 97-90 victory in front of an announced sellout of 19,520 Wednesday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
The series is now even at 1-1 with the next two games to be played at the Moda Center in Portland.
Between playing more physically and doing a far better job of defending the three-point line, the Trail Blazers set the tone for their defensive approach in Game 2 early on in the first quarter.
The Nuggets still shot 45 percent from the field and 40 percent from three in the first quarter, but the work Portland put in the first quarter would ultimately pay off.
