PORTLAND, Ore. — It’s 2013, and Will Barton is two seasons into his pro career and doubting for the first time in his life that he can make it in the NBA.

PORTLAND — First, the Nuggets were an easy target because of him. “When you talk to teams in the West, they don’t fear the Nuggets,” ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said in March. “… What people will say is that their best player, which is (Nikola) Jokic, is more neutralizable in a playoff setting than a guy like Durant or Curry or…...

PORTLAND — The game was getting away from the Nuggets in the third quarter. Thanks to some more cold shooting on par with Denver’s Game 2 performance, the Trail Blazers stretched their to as many as 10 points. Then Nikola Jokic took over.

The chants grew louder as Craig approached to the free-throw line. “That…...

Brick by brick, the boos started to trickle out. With three minutes remaining in the first half, Nikola Jokic whipped a pass to a wide-open Malik Beasley at the top of the arc. Beasley set and fired his belongs-in-an-instructional-video jumper, but the shot glanced off the front rim. On Denver’s next time down the floor, Beasley barreled into the lane,…...

Jamal Murray found himself wide open from the top of the 3-point arc with a little under four minutes remaining. He rose, fired, and after rattling around the rim for a few moments, the ball gently fell through the rim as the Nuggets trimmed the Trail Blazers’ lead to seven points. Murray exhaled, looked towards Pepsi Center’s ceiling and ran…...

It took less than 60 seconds for Damian Lillard to welcome the Nuggets back to 2019. As Lillard galloped up the floor on the Trail Blazers first possession of Monday’s Game 1, his cavalry immediately moved into formation. Al-Farouq Aminu ran over to Lillard and set Portland’s guard a ball screen on the left wing. Enes Kanter stood right behind…...
