For the second game in a row, the Clippers failed to cement the Western Conference Finals berth that has alluded the franchise. Game 7 looms with the Denver Nuggets holding all the momentum.
No team in NBA history has come back from 3-1 twice in the same playoffs, but the Nuggets are on the precipice of doing precisely that.
The series shifted in Game 5 when Marcus Morris and his teammates decided to chirp at Paul Millsap. The vet took exception scored 14 points in that frame and fueled the Nuggets to a victory.
In Game 6, a hard block by Paul George on Jamal Murray went uncalled with George landing on top of Murray and again that seemed to fuel the Nuggets. Murray went on to score 21 points with five rebounds and five assists.
Nikola Jokic delivered a double-double of 34 points and 14 rebounds (seven assists) and was the best player on the court.
In each of his eight playoff games, Gary Harris has improved. He netted 16 points but his solid defense has been critical to Nuggets wins.
Michael Porter Jr. (13) and Monte Morris (10) delivered the other double-figure scores.
Murray’s fall hurt his hip and he’s listed as questionable for Game 7, but highly unlikely the Canadian won’t suit up.
Los Angeles Clippers
Losing series the team leads isn’t new to the Clippers franchise who has a storied history of this happening.
Last season was the recruitment of Leonard and the previous two seasons witnessed the Clippers parting ways with their big three of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan. But, the five previous seasons all ended with losses in series they should have won.
The worst of those losses occurred in 2015 when LA held a 3-1 edge over the Rockets. Up 19 points late in the third in Game 6 and with James Harden benched the Rockets roared back to tie the series and knocked out LAC in Game 7.
This is a new team albeit still coached by Doc Rivers but don’t think there aren’t a few worried people in the Clippers organization.
In the Game 6 loss, although George led his team in scoring (33) he also had the worst plus/minus (minus 23) of his team. Leonard (25), Lou Williams (14), and JaMychal Green (11) were the only other double-figure contributors.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Under is 41-18-2 in the last 61 meetings.
- LAC are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Tue. games.
- Nuggets are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games.
Free Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
Regardless of whether the self-anointed ‘Playoff P’ Paul George shows up (hint: he has a tendency to shrink in big games), Leonard will have to lead this crew by example an do whatever is necessary to get the Clippers over the hump.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets +7.5 or bet the under
Denver has nothing to lose as the underdogs but Murray’s injury could be an issue.
Leonard is learning his Raptors squad may have been a better overall ‘team’ particularly defensively as his Clippers allowed Denver to shoot 54.1 percent from the field and a robust 48 percent from deep. That cannot happen in Game 7.
Kawhi will look to replicate what he did in the conference semi-finals last season and needs to be the best player on court for LA to win. That will go a long way to building confidence and momentum moving to the WCF.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
