Guards CJ McCollum and Allen Crabbed scored 29 and 20 points, respectively, as the Trail Blazers won again Wednesday night without hobbled star Damian Lillard.

The Blazers topped the Denver Nuggets 110-103 at Moda Center for their third win in a row.

Portland is 3-2 since Lillard went to the sideline with left foot plantar fasciitis.

Former Blazers guard Will Barton paced Denver with 21 points, one shy of his career high.

The Nuggets have lost nine of their last 10 to the Blazers.
