Things got chippy in the closing stretch of the Portland Trail Blazers' 97-90 victory over the Denver Nuggets in Game 2 of their second-round playoff series Wednesday.
Gary Harris was not pleased to see someone run into Craig after the Nuggets announced he suffered a nasal contusion and came to his teammate's defense, sparking a scuffle.

As for the game, CJ McCollum spearheaded Portland's effort with 20 points, six assists and six rebounds, helping overcome a lackluster performance from Damian Lillard (14 points on just 5-of-17 shooting from the field and 1-of-7 shooting from deep).
The Trail Blazers now have home-court advantage as a result, which is a problem for a Nuggets team that was a mere 20-21 on the road this season.
