"LaMarcus Aldridge, the buckets that he made, I can live with that," said Denver coach Brian Shaw. "But some of the fouls that we committed to send him to the line without him having to really work for it, I thought is what hurt us, especially in the fourth quarter." Kenneth Faried got two quick fouls early in the game and had to sit, but the Nuggets still led 30-28 at the end of the first quarter, paced by Anthony Randolph off the bench. Nate Robinson 's 3-pointer stretched Denver's lead to 44-37, and the Nuggets went on to lead by as many as 12 points in the second quarter. Portland went on a 9-0 run to close to 51-48, but Denver held on to 67-59 lead at the half.

"It was nothing about that," he said. "We lost two games and we needed this win." Still, Aldridge scored his team's final 15 points as the Blazers avoided their first three-game losing streak of the season.
