The Nuggets vs Trail Blazers live stream is set to start at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT today (June 3).
It will air on TNT, which is available on Sling TV, currently on sale down to $10 for the first month.

The Nuggets vs Trail Blazers live stream is here and the latter needs Damian Lillard to pull in another historic performance. That, and maybe little else, can stop Denver’s Nikola Jokic from propelling his team into the conference semifinals in this NBA playoffs live stream.

The general reaction to Tuesday night’s double-overtime Game 5 was, “great Nuggets win but did you see what Damian Lillard did?” The Blazers’ guard went off in the loss, dropping 55 points while setting an NBA record with 12 three-pointers made. He also dished out 10 assists.  According to ESPN stats & info, Lillard is the first player in the history of the NBA to record at least 50-points, 10-assists and 10-three-pointers in a playoff or regular season game.

Those numbers are obviously impressive, but the only thing veteran guard cares about is winning and right now the Blazers trail in the series 3-2. “All that matters is we can’t lose another game,” Lillard told reporters after his historic performance. Portland is trying to avoid a first round playoff exit for a second straight year.

While the Blazers have relied heavily on their superstar, so have the Nuggets. MVP favorite Nikola Jokic continued his dominance in Game 5 with his fourth 30-point game of the series and finished an assist shy of a triple-double. With a win the Nuggets will advance to the conference semifinals for the third straight year.

The Blazers host Game 6 as 4-point underdogs.

How to avoid Nuggets vs Trail Blazers blackouts with a VPN

If you've had to leave your own "bubble" -- or you've been hit by a dreaded local blackout -- and you can't watch Nuggets vs Trail Blazers live streams on cable, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here are our top picks.

In the U.S. Nuggets vs Trail Blazers airs on TNT, tipping off at 8 p.m. ET. 

If you've already cut the cord and don't have a cable package, you'll be able to get this game on Sling TV (we love FuboTV for a lot of sports, but it doesn't have TNT). 

ESPN and TNT are both included in the Sling Orange package, which costs $35. Sling will be a perfect place to watch all of the NBA playoffs, as ABC games will simulcast on ESPN3, and Sling Orange gets you TNT, ESPN, ESPN3, and its Sports Extra pack gets you NBA TV.

Sling and Fubo are two of the picks on our best streaming services list, but we go with Sling here even though it doesn't have ABC (though you can get it with one of the best TV antennas), as those games will be on ESPN3.
