Free Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
Friday, February 28th, finds the Denver Nuggets and LA Clippers meeting for the second time this season. In the initial meeting on January 12th, the Nuggets won 114-104
This match takes on extra precedence due to the seeding of the teams. Entering the match the Nuggets are seeded second and the Clippers third. Immediate implications apply as a win by the Nuggets would give them the tiebreak with only one more meeting remaining between the clubs.
Last season, the teams played four times with the Nuggets taking three games. The Nuggets hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 97 of their 176 matches.
Although the Nuggets are unlikely to catch the Lakers for first in the West they also need to hold off a pack of teams chasing them and primarily the Clippers who are the closest to them on the ladder.
Following back to back losses to seeded Western teams the Lakers and Thunder, the Nuggets got back on track with consecutive victories versus the Wolves and Pistons.
In the victory over Detroit, Jerami Grant had a huge game off the bench with 29 points and four rebounds. Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray each registered 16 points. Michael Porter Jr. scored 13 as the only other double-figure contributor.
Nikola Jokic leads four main categories with 20.8 points 6.8 assists, 10.0 rebounds, and 52.8% percent field goal percentage. The hustle categories are led by Gary Harris for steals (1.3) and Jerami Grant for blocks (0.8).
Noah Vonleh is questionable for the match Friday as he’s suffering from an ankle sprain. Bol Bol (foot) remains out indefinitely.
Los Angeles Clippers
This match is arguably more important for the Clippers who need to win to keep tiebreak options open.
LA recovered from a three game losing streak to the 76ers, Celtics, and Kings by winning their last two games to the Grizzlies and Suns.
With Paul George and Patrick Beverley back in the lineup (and each scoring 11 points), the floor opened for Kawhi Leonard who feasted with a 24 point, 14 rebound double-double.
Marcus Morris scored 18 and Reggie Jackson chipped in 12 as the other double-figure contributors.
The team leaders are Kawhi Leonard for scoring (27.1), rebounds (7.5) and steals (1.8), Lou Williams for assists (5.8), Montrezl Harrell for blocks (1.1) and Ivica Zubac for field goal percentage (59.6%).
Head Coach Doc Rivers finally has a fully healthy roster to work with and 24 games to build chemistry and tweak the Clippers rotations and system as they look to build momentum heading into the postseason.

Free Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
This game should take on a playoff intensity because it feels like it’s worth much more than a single “W” or “L”.
A Nuggets win would give them a stranglehold on the second seed and also put them in the conversation with the LA teams as a title contender.
Whereas a Clippers win would keep their options more fluid to still capture second in the West.
