Lillard finished Game 6 with 32 points on 11-of-23 shooting and if he's feeling it like this again in Game 7, we could see a performance for the ages. Game Four was a close one, but the were dominated in Game Five. I mean, we lost Game 5 by, what, [26] points? "Everybody was locked in", Simmons said. We know we are capable of winning there.

Denver got a solid effort out of its starting five. We'll let you know everything you didn't know you needed to know about sports.

"I felt like I was a little too far to dunk it, and I had no legs because I just came in", Beasley told The Athletic.

The winner-take-all contest is to be tomorrow in Toronto, with the victor advancing to face the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.

The Nuggets head home with a chance to make it to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2009. Damian Lillard scored 22 points for the Blazers in the loss.

He was very much so in action in Game 6 as he was draining long shots from outside and finding ways to score in the paint despite the Nuggets' ability to redirect shots near the basket.

The Nuggets and Blazers will settle their best-of-seven series, which is tied at 3-3, on Sunday in Denver.

Lillard's sixth 3-pointer of the game put Portland up 83-78. Roll with another OVER (-110) as the Blazers take the series to the decisive Game 7 back in Denver.

"It is unfortunate, but we have been here before", Nuggets coach Mike Malone said. "It's your last opportunity to play, so facing elimination is what it is to me, and that's going to be my approach, just like it was tonight".

The winners of tomorrow's game are to face the winners of the series between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets. "Now we go home and have the best home-court advantage in the National Basketball Association".

There were fears Durant might have suffered a more extensive injury, but the team said that the MRI confirmed the initial diagnosis of a right calf strain.
