The Denver Nuggets earned the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference despite a season-ending injury to one of their best players Jamal Murray last month, as they get set for their first round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland will enter as the No. 6 seed as they narrowly escaped the play-in tournament due owning the tiebreaker over the Los Angeles Lakers. The Nuggets are led by the favorite to win NBA MVP in Nikola Jokic, who will have to carry the team with Murray out. The Blazers have Damian Lillard, who has tasted the Western Conference Finals but hasn’t been able to get past the hump.

Below is a full rundown of the Nuggets-Blazers series and how to watch it.
