A Western Conference showdown takes place on Tuesday night in Los Angeles as the Nuggets take on the Clippers.
Both teams are playing good basketball right now, and should make for a good match up.
This is the first meeting between the two teams this year. Last year the Clippers won the season series 2-1.
The Denver Nuggets come into this game hot.
They have won three of their last four games including wins over the Knicks, Trail Blazers, and the Magic. Their one loss in that game stretch came against the worst team in the NBA, the Mavericks.
As well as they have played it shows that they can’t take a night off, or any team can beat them.
The Nuggets are led by a balanced attack on the offensive end. They have 10 players who average over 9 points a game. Wilson Chandler leads the team in scoring putting up 17 points per game.
On the offensive end the Nuggets average 107.4 points per game. On the road that number drops to 103.2 points per game. They shoot 43 percent from the field on the road so far this season.
One thing to watch is the Nuggets are playing a game on Monday night. Denver is only 1-4 on zero days rest.
On the road this season the Nuggets are 6-9 on the season.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers come into this game on a two day break but they might be just as tired as team coming off a back to back. They flew back into Los Angeles on Monday from Washington D.C.
They have been playing well as of late winning four of their last five. Their only loss came on Sunday against the Wizards. They had beat the likes of the Heat, Magic, Trail Blazers and the Pelicans in that stretch.
Blake Griffin is expected to undergo a minor knee surgery and miss the next couple weeks. This is a huge blow to the Clippers and really leaves them short handed.
Expect the Clippers to start using a small lineup more to combat the injury of Griffin.
The Clippers have played well on both sides of the ball so far this season.
They score over 109 points per game, well only giving up 99. They have struggled a bit more on the defensive side as of late, but they are still considered one of the better defensive teams in the league
So far this season the Clippers have a home record of 9-4

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
With Blake Griffin playing the Clippers are a much better team but with him out that makes it a bit closer on paper. I expect the Clippers to still win, but I think it will be a close game.
