The last of the four Conference semifinals series to get underway sees Portland take on Denver.
The Trail Blazers will still be riding high from Damian Lillard’s unbelievable 40-foot buzzer beater to send the Oklahoma City Thunder packing.
The shot capped a perfect night for Lillard, dropping 50 points to win the series 4-1.
They have also had much more time to prepare for the semifinals than their opponents the Nuggets.
Denver only just came through against the San Antonio Spurs in a first round clash which went to a Game 7.
The Nuggets ultimately came through a tough test from Gregg Popovich’s side for their first playoff series win since 2009.
It promises to be a fascinating series, with the winner going on to face either Houston Rockets or Golden State Warriors for a place in the NBA Finals.
