Tuesday, January 11th finds the Denver Nuggets facing the LA Clippers for the second time this season. In the initial meeting, LA won 103-100. The teams will play twice in Denver on January 19th and March 22nd.
Both teams last played on Sunday with the Nuggets hanging tough to beat the Thunder 99-95 while the Clippers beat the reeling Hawks 106-93.
Last season, the teams played on three occasions with the Nuggets taking two of the three contests. The Nuggets hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 100 of their 182 matches.
The front office of the Nuggets made some moves on the weekend sending Bol Bol to the Pistons in order to shore up their depth and draft closet. Coming back to Denver in the deal is Rodney McGruder and the Nets 2022 second-round draft pick.
In addition, Denver is contemplating signing DeMarcus Cousins to a 10-day contract which would help give Nikola Jokic some help upfront. The Nuggets waived center Petr Cornelie but offset the move by signing Davon Reed to a two-way contract.
Jokic delivered another double-double of 22 points and 18 rebounds (plus six assists) in the victory. Austin Rivers also scored 22 while Jeff Green and Will Barton scored 16 and 14 as the other double-figure contributors. The Nuggets were active on the glass outrebounding the Thunder 53-41 including 18 offensive rebounds (to 11).
Markus Howard (knee) is questionable while Will Barton (COVID) is out. Vlatko Cancar (foot) and Jamal Murray (ACL) are out indefinitely while PJ Dozier (ACL) and Michael Porter Jr. (back) are out for the season.
In the match versus the Hawks, seven Clippers scored in double-figures. Amir Coffey was the top point-getter for LA with 21 points plus five rebounds, and three assists. Ivica Zubac returned from protocols to deliver eight points and 13 rebounds.
Serge Ibaka (16), Marcus Morris Sr. (15), Reggie Jackson (12), Eric Bledsoe (12), Nic Batum (10), and Terance Mann (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
LA won the match via defense as they outrebounded the Hawks 47 to 39 and scoring in the paint 50 to 40 but most impressively held Atlanta to 26.9 percent from the perimeter (7 of 26).
Luke Kennard (conditioning) and Jason Preston (foot) are questionable for Tuesday. Isaiah Hartenstein (ankle) is out indefinitely. George (elbow) is out 3 to 4 weeks and Kawhi Leonard continues to work back from a torn ACL.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. LA Clippers NBA Prediction:
Zubac returned just in time for this matchup and the unenviable defensive matchup versus Jokic. While LA won the initial meeting and didn’t have Paul George for that match either they haven’t looked solid especially offensively of late.
Granted the Nuggets aren’t lighting up the offensive end either but they’ll have the best player on the court and their 18th offensive rank is light years ahead of the Clippers’ 27th rating.
