Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone said the "scary part" of Michael Porter's bubble breakout is that he "has so much room for growth". Porter Jr erupted for his second successive 30-point double-double as the Nuggets defeated the San Antonio Spurs 132-126 on Wednesday night to move within half-a-game of the second-placed LA Clippers in the Western Conference.
The Denver Nuggets look to extend their winning streak as they square up against the Portland Trail Blazers, who are currently fighting for a chance to qualify to play in the play-in game as the 9-seed in the Western Conference. These two teams faced each other in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs last season, in what seems like a lifetime ago.
