The Portland Trail Blazers are being thrown right back into a new series after playing seven games with the Denver Nuggets. They are averaging 110.2 points per game.

Public betting, however, seems to lean ever so slightly towards the Portland Trail Blazers.

Hulu with Live TV also offers 50 hours of cloud DVR storage to keep your favorite programming around for repeat or delayed viewing. Be sure to select the Sling Orange bundle that includes ESPN3, which is where the ABC live stream feed for today's game is located. Game 7 will be broadcast on TNT.

Of Portland's 93 games, 50 have finished over the O/U total, while 51 of Denver's 95 games have finished under the projected point total.

The explanation for this bet is fairly straightforward: all but two games in this series have been decided by single digits.

The key to victory for both sides involves Nuggets center Nikola Jokic. Both teams have very similar records straight up (SU) and against the spread (ATS).

Portland's star Damian Lillard had an terrible shooting night, making just three of 17 shots for 13 points, although two of them were crucial three-pointers in the fourth quarter. Portland's two top scorers, Lillard and CJ McCollum, have combined for 311 points in the series.

An x-factor for the Blazers has been the play of Rodney Hood off the bench.

"I knew I had to come in with high spirits", Embiid said. However, in Game 6, Damian Lillard shot lights out and was 46.1% from three point range.

The team that wins Game 7 will play the Bucks in the Eastern Conference finals after Milwaukee defeated the Celtics in five games. Here are the VGR simulation results for Sunday's big Western Conference semifinals game.

We can only hope Sunday's Game 7 features that raw, visceral emotion palpable 18 springs ago when Vince Carter's potential buzzer-beating jumper in front of the Raptors' bench hit iron. It's often said that role players are much better at home, and that's proven to be the case for Toronto.

Despite his shooting woes, Lillard contributed with 10 rebounds and eight assists to go with his 13 points.

The Nuggets have gone 34-7 at home. If we're all out there just being friendly, it ain't gonna look like nobody's trying to win, huh?

Philadelphia's lead swelled to 38-21 early in the second quarter following consecutive 3-pointers from Embiid and Scott.

"It is unfortunate but we have been here before", said Nuggets coach Mike Malone.

Notable: Philly's Jimmy Butler has never trailed in a Game 7 - his Chicago Bulls won at Brooklyn in 2013, a game the Nets never led.

During their last five games, the Trail Blazers have scored an average of 113.2 points per game (1.2 below their season average) and allowed an average of 115.0 points per game (4.5 above their season average). Toronto's second unit had its glaring struggles in the series against the 76ers but was able to overcome it with a couple of solid games from Serge Ibaka, among others.
