Denver had a 73-66 lead after a high-scoring first half, but Lillard kept Portland in the game with 30 points in the first two quarters.

Although they trailed by as many as 20 points at one point in the fourth quarter, Denver’s defensive adjustments in the second half allowed them to seize control of the game and seal the victory. Also Read: Stephen Curry scores 41 points as the Warriors defeat the Wizards 127-118
