Nuggets' Torrey Craig Suffers Gruesome Broken Nose in Game 2 of Playoffs

Blazers aren't worried Nuggets aren't satisfied

Denver Nuggets forward Torrey Craig left Game 2 with a nasal contusion after taking an inadvertant elbow to the face from Portland Trail Blazers big man Zach Collins.

The Blazers topped the Denver Nuggets 97-90 on Wednesday to even their second-round series at 1-1, riding some strong defense - or some cold Denver shooting - to their lowest-scoring win of the playoffs.

Things did get a little interesting in the final minute of the fourth quarter, however, when the teams exchanged some heated words and had to be separated.

We'll see if the emotions carry over to Game 3.

Nikola Jokic had 16 points and 14 boards but got off to a slow start and wasn't almost the take-control force he was in Game 1, when he scored 37 points.

The Nuggets shot just 35.1 percent in front of their home crowd, with no player topping more than 16 points.

Moments after Craig hobbled off, leaving a trail of blood, Maurice Harkless rolled his right ankle and also left the game.

Despite his injury, Craig returned in the second half wearing a face mask and hit a three-pointer with 1:03 to play in the third quarter.
