Denver Nuggets: 3 takeaways from Game 6 loss vs. Blazers

In Portland, the Blazers were able to fend off the Nuggets in a go hard or go home Game 6.

After suffering an agonizing four-overtime loss in Game 3, the second-seeded Nuggets took control of the series with two straight wins.

To be clear, Jokic still had an remarkable night, logging 29 points (on a highly-efficient 10-of-15 shooting), two three-pointers, 12 rebounds, and eight assists.

"He waited for a few people to get in between us, and when a few people were in between us, he put his finger in my eye", Curry told ESPN. Rodney Hood provided a difference-making 25 points to keep Portland's season alive.

The incident occurred after Nuggets center Nikola Jokic drove to the rim and was called for an offensive foul, causing Collins to fall backward toward Barton's legs. "Now we go home and we have the best home-court advantage in the National Basketball Association, and we are going to try to take advantage of that and close it out".

"We'll go back home, regroup, like we did for San Antonio, come back with energy and just be ready to play", Murray said. Then he added how little Portland respects Denver by calling the Nuggets: "Front-runners".

Here's everything you need to know about Game 6. "Some things are going to happen". Damian Lillard dropped in 32 points and, more impressively, Enes Kanter ripped down 14 rebounds even though he's fasting for Ramadan.

"We probably said some stuff, I don't remember everything in the heat of the moment".

"They got some sassy dudes over there", Blazers guard Seth Curry said late Thursday. Portland also needs to defend better, and at some point someone's going to need to make a shot. The game sets up an epic showdown in Game 7 on Sunday in Toronto.
