In matchup of undefeated teams, the Portland Trail Blazers topped the Denver Nuggets by a final score of 111-102. These two Western Conference sleepers played a fantastic game that featured a lot of back of forth action. Don’t be surprised if the Blazers and Nuggets face each other in the 2012 NBA playoffs. The Blazers, who were playing at home, were led by Wesley Matthews and Raymond Felton. Matthews had 25 points and five rebounds, while Felton added 23 points and six assists. Ty Lawson, who has been playing at an All-Star level this season, led the Nuggets with 25 points and eight assists — but it wasn’t enough for Denver. The 3-0 Blazers have now won by an average of 11.7 points. Their deep and talented roster will be very handy in this condensed lockout-shortened season. Expect Portland to be a lot better than most NBA pundits assume. Wes Matthews, Portland Trail Blazers (Image: TSN.ca) Post from: EveryJoe
