LINE: Blazers -2; O/U: 212.

Damian Lillard made a franchise-record ten 3-pointers in his last game. He figures to receive plenty of attention from the Denver defense when the on Friday. Lillard scored 41 points in Wednesday’s 115-112 victory over the Orlando Magic. The Trail Blazers halted a three-game slide.

Lillard was 10-of-15 from 3-point range against Orlando. It broke a slump of 14-of-52 over the previous six games. His dead-eye marksmanship highlighted his fourth 40-point outing of the season.

Denver is beginning a five-game road trip. They are riding a four-game winning streak after Wednesday’s 117-85 ass-whipping of the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Nuggets are 14-7 on the season and looking to make it 15 wins.

Denver limited Los Angeles to 39.1 percent from the field and 5-of-35 from 3-point range. They have held its last three opponents to an average of 90 points.

Millsap had 20 points and 11 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the season while guards Jamal Murray and Malik Beasley each scored 20, with Beasley’s effort representing a career high.

The Nuggets have won the past three meetings.

The Trail Blazers are 13-8 on the season and are looking to find offensive consistency.

Backup guard Nik Stauskas also had a hot hand from outside against Orlando. He matched his season best of five 3-pointers while scoring 18 points. Stauskas has scored in double digits six times this season. It was topped by a career best-tying 24 against the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 18.

PREDICTION: Trail Blazers 107, Nuggets 103
