Honestly, both are problematic. Here's why:


Dallas has already, I believe, beat the Nuggets twice this season.

Portland's backcourt scares me, mostly because I question Denver's defensive chops against Lillard and McCollum, with no Jamal or Gary. Facu? I love the guy (he's so competitive and fun and a defensive pest) but he's not going to shut down the Blazers' guards or help offset their scoring.

Now, MPJ is a better scorer than Jamal so Denver has made up that scoring and with better efficiency. The question is can Aaron Gordon provide more than he's providing, can Green and Sap give Denver what it needs off the bench and how well will Facu and Rivers play.

So, to answer the question...difficult. I'd rather roll the bones with Dallas but Doncic, Hardaway and if healthy, Porzingas, will be tough.
