Port­land comes to the Mile High City on a three-game win­ning streak, but there is more to that story. The Trail Blaz­ers have lost their last four road games and have won just two of their last eight games away from the Moda Cen­ter. How­ever, one of their few road vic­to­ries this sea­son was a come-from-be­hind over­time win over Den­ver on Oct. 29. In fact, Port­land has beaten the Nuggets five con­sec­u­tive times, in­clud­ing the first two of this sea­son’s se­ries. Nuggets: The Nuggets re­turn home for six of their next eight games start­ing with the Blaz­ers. And as bad as things have gone for them, they re­main just three games out of the eighth spot in the West­ern Con­fer­ence, cur­rently oc­cu­pied by Port­land, which is do­ing so with a los­ing record of its own (13-14). The Nuggets took Tues­day off be­fore get­ting back to prac­tice Wed­nes­day. Gary Har­ris par­tic­i­pated in that prac­tice and is said to have a “pretty good” chance of re­turn­ing to ac­tion, coach Michael Malone said. Har­ris has missed 20 games this sea­son with foot and groin in­juries.
