Portland Trail Blazers to play Denver Nuggets in Western Conference Semifinals

The Portland Trail Blazers finally know their opponent for the Western Conference Semifinals:

The Nuggets beat the San Antonio Spurs 90-86 Saturday night in the final game of the first round of the NBA playoffs, setting up a best-of-seven series against the Blazers.

Game 1 of the Portland-Denver series will be Monday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Pepsi Center.

The Nuggets finished the regular season with a 54-28 record, good enough to win a Northwest Division championship and claim the No.

It will be the third time in franchise history the Blazers will face the Nuggets in the playoffs.
