Blazers beat Nuggets to take 1-game lead for 8th seed

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Jusuf Nurkic knows what his former team is missing. He illustrated that Tuesday night and got serenaded by his new fans in the process.

Nurkic had a career-high 33 points with 16 rebounds against his ex-teammates, CJ McCollum had 39 points and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Denver Nuggets 122-113 on Tuesday night to take hold of the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

"They know definitely what they're missing," Nurkic said. "But they're happy for me that I find my spot, and I'm happy for me, too."
