No Nikola Jokic. No Jamal Murray. No Paul Millsap. Somehow, without their three leading scorers, the Nuggets still led in Portland, 105-98, with under five minutes to play.

The Trail Blazers were practically gifted a win, and they still nearly gave it away. Despite the unlikely deficit late, Portland pushed past the problems with a 17-3 run to win, 115-108.

Damian Lillard, Al-Farouq Aminu and Enes Kanter scored 15 of the 17 points in the final four minutes.

Lillard scored 30 points, while collecting six rebounds and five assists. Aminu showed up big with 23 points and 11 rebounds. Kanter also collected a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds.

CJ McCollum returned for the Blazers and played 25 minutes. He only scored nine points, but he also racked up six rebounds and six assists.

Portland also got double-digit scoring from Rodney Hood and Seth Curry, who each scored 11 points.

Denver was led by Gary Harris, who scored 18 points.

The Blazers have two games left. Tuesday in LA to battle the Lakers and Wednesday in Moda against Sacramento.
