Notebook: Trail Blazers 100, Nuggets 95


Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:54 AM - Updated Wed Feb 26, 2014 2:15 AM

THE FACT: The Portland Trail Blazers have won three games from Denver for the first time since the lockout-shortened 1998-99 season. They have a chance to go 4-0 against the Nuggets for the first time in 14 years when the teams meet in Portland on Saturday.

THE LEAD: Damian Lillard scored 31 points and dished out nine assists, Robin Lopez had 12 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high seven blocks and the Portland Trail Blazers raced to a big lead before holding on for a 100-95 win over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.

Nicolas Batum had 16 points, including five down the stretch to hold off the slumping Nuggets. The Blazers won their third straight without leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge, who missed his fourth consecutive game with a left groin strain.

Denver forward J.J. Hickson had a career-high 25 rebounds against his former team, including an NBA-best 15 offensive boards, to go with 16 points. Randy Foye had 17 points for the Nuggets, who nearly rallied from an 18-point deficit before losing their eighth game in the last nine.

Denver got within two points twice but couldn't complete the comeback.

QUOTABLE: "It was a difficult game. We did a lot of good things, made some big plays defensively to win it at the end. The offense kind of shut down in the fourth quarter but our defense was solid. To get a win like this in Denver is something we need to do."
-- Portland coach Terry Stotts

THE STAT: Hickson's 15 offensive boards were more than double the seven offensive rebounds the Blazers had as a team. Denver outrebounded Portland on the offensive end 27-7, which helped them put up 103 shots. It's the most the Nuggets have had in a regulation game since April 18, 2001.

TURNING POINT: After the Nuggets cut it to 90-88 on Kenneth Faried's short hook with 2:51 left, Batum came up big. He railed up and hit a corner 3-pointer to make it 97-90 with 42.5 seconds left, and then hit two free throws in the waning moments to seal the win.

QUOTABLE II: "I felt like I was due for an OK game; I had been struggling the last couple games. Twenty-five boards is exciting but the win would have been more exciting."
-- J.J. Hickson

HOT: Lillard has been Portland's go-to guy during Aldridge's absence. Lillard is averaging 30 points and eight assists over the last four games, and he has turned up his offense when needed. He scored 12 points in a four-minute span of the third quarter when Portland went from a 10-point lead to up 79-61.

QUOTABLE III: "Obviously I've had to be a little more aggressive and up my game with him out, but we've had guys stepping up consistently. Everybody's raised their level of play with him out."
-- Damian Lillard

NOT: The Blazers couldn't by a bucket in the fourth quarter and it nearly cost them the game. They were 4-for-21 from the field after shooting 47 percent in the first three periods. Their defense came up big, doing just enough to hold off the Nuggets.

INSIDE THE ARENA: University of Colorado junior guard Spencer Dinwiddie was in the arena. Dinwiddie, considered a potential lottery pick if he declared for the 2014 NBA Draft, suffered a season-ending torn ACL in his left knee last month.

GOOD MOVE: Denver coach Brian Shaw decided to move 7-foot-1 center Timofey Mozgov into the starting lineup and bring Hickson off the bench for just the fourth time this season. Both players rebounded from poor games. Mozgov had 14 points and Hickson put up video-game numbers.

QUOTABLE III: "I told J.J., 'Don't let coming off the bench affect you just come out and respond by playing hard.' He bounced back and worked hard. He did a great job and was a big part on the comeback."
-- Randy Foye

BAD MOVE: Already shorthanded on the frontcourt, the Blazers lost power forward Thomas Robinson to an injury in the third quarter. The team didn't specify the nature of the injury but Thomas had his left knee wrapped in ice in the locker room after the game.

NOTABLE: The last time the Nuggets lost eight of nine games was nine years ago, just before George Karl was hired in January 2005. ... Lopez has nine career double-doubles. ... Hickson's 15 offensive rebounds is an NBA franchise record. Only three players have collected as many rebounds in league history -- Andray Blatche on April 1, 2011, and Dennis Rodman on Dec. 23, 1997.

UP NEXT: For the Trail Blazers, Wednesday vs. Brooklyn, Saturday vs. Denver, Monday vs. L.A. Lakers. For the Nuggets, Thursday vs. Brooklyn, Saturday @ Portland, Monday vs. Minnesota.
