If I said yesterday that Portland would go 1-1 during the Utah/Denver back-to-back, how would you have felt? Well hold onto that feeling, because the Blazers got thumped in Denver tonight.
LaMarcus Aldridge played well (18 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and a "would have otherwise been memorable" 7 blocked shots), but a tired Blazers team just couldn't keep up with the also-short-handed Nuggets.
Box score is here, discuss how great it was to go 1-1 against Utah and Denver, and stay tuned for Dave's recap. -- Tim
