TNT will host Thursday’s first-round NBA playoff matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers with tip set for 8:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the Moda Center in Portland, and will air on Altitude in the Nuggets market and on NBC Sports NW in the Trail Blazers market.
If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA playoff matchup, you can stream the game on Watch TNT or via their mobile app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access TNT for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.
The Nuggets will look to close out the series after outlasting Damian Lillard’s 55-point explosion in Game 5 for a win in double overtime. Nikola Jokic keeps showing everyone why he’s the favorite to win NBA MVP and Denver’s shooters are finding their rhythm. Michael Porter Jr. is stepping into his role as a second star.
Lillard will be gassed after Game 5, but don’t expect any excuses from one of the league’s toughest players. He’ll be tasked with guiding the Trail Blazers to a win in Game 6 at home and he should be up for the task. CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic will be key in taking pressure off Lillard.
