The NBA's Portland Trail Blazers, whose rebuilding project suffered a setback with star draft pick Greg Oden having to miss the season due to injury, are now playing at a level few would have expected. Friday night, Portland won its 10th game in a row, outlasting the Denver Nuggets, 99-96. After a 5-12 start, the Blazers are now 15-12.

In keeping the winning streak alive, Portland was aided by a hot stretch within the game. Trailing 76-69 after three quarters, the Blazers went on a 16-2 run to start the fourth (play-by-play sheet for the final period).
