The Denver Nuggets eliminated the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday night in six games, ending the series with a 126-115 win in Portland.
The third-seeded Nuggets will play the Phoenix Suns after the Suns eliminated the Los Angeles Lakers in six games later that night.
Denver was one of the few teams the Suns did not have a winning record against in the regular season. Due to the dynamics of the regular season schedule in the middle of a pandemic, Phoenix played all three of its games against the Nuggets in January, including a back-to-back at home.
