A Northwest Division Showdown
posted: Monday, February 04, 2008 at 6:23 PM

We've got a big game on our hands tonight here at the Rose Garden. The Denver Nuggets are in town for a game with big implications for the playoffs. The Trail Blazers have won two of the three games this year against the Nuggets, so a win tonight would win the season series. A win tonight would also bring the Trail Blazers into a tie with the Nuggets for second place in the division. The tiebreaker is all-important at the end of the season, particularly in the tight Western Conference.

Brandon Roy and the Trail Blazers will look to match his triple-double on Friday against a Nuggets team that is missing its best defensive player. Marcus Camby is out because of injury, which should open up many scoring opportunities for the Trail Blazers. Camby leads the NBA in blocks per game and is the league's second-leading rebounder.

Last time the Nuggets were in town, Allen Iverson and Carmelo Anthony each scored 34 points - impressive, but not enough to beat your Trail Blazers.

The Trail Blazers will look to repeat that performance and get another Northwest Division win here in the Rose Garden.

Stay tuned!
