The Portland Trail Blazers suffered a disappointing end to a challenging road trip after an impressive beginning.

Returning home to face the defensively averse Denver Nuggets should provide the league's highest-scoring team a good opportunity to bounce back.

Portland looks to avoid losing a third straight game for the first time this season as it faces Denver on Thursday night.

The Trail Blazers (31-11) started their trip - four games against teams among the Western Conference's top seven - with wins in San Antonio and Dallas before falling in Houston and Oklahoma City on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. It marked their third set of back-to-back losses in just over three weeks after not suffering consecutive defeats through their first 29 games.

Tuesday's 105-97 loss to the Thunder also cost them first place in the Northwest Division. Portland lead for a majority of the contest but gave up 11 of Kevin Durant's 46 points in the final 3:23.
