Image result for craig from nuggets breaking nose

Last night the 3 seeded Trail Blazers defeated the 2 seeded Nuggets. This game was very rough from both teams with one player from each team being injured. Early in the second quarter Torrey Craig was going for the ball and was accidentally hit in the face resulting in a broken nose which was bleeding a lot. The game continued and the Blazers were ahead for most of the game by at least ten points. With the Nuggets down in the 4th Craig came back into the game and hit a 3 which was the first 3 made by the Nuggets since the 1st. Although the Nuggets were down by double digits they were motivated from their teammate and they went on a run cutting the lead down to 5. However the Blazers were not ready to lose holding them fromĀ  cutting the lead down anymore and Rodney Hood hit two clutch free throws to clinch the win for the Blazers with a final score of 97-90. Thanks for reading and let me know who you think is going to win this series.
