The Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers in their last outing, winning the game 129-101. While out in Utah the L.A. Clippers fell at the hands of the young, up incoming Utah Jazz (final score 114-108).
The L.A. Clippers dropped their last game thanks to their play in the third quarter.
Los Angeles got totally outplayed in the period, as Utah outscored them 40-30. After that, the Clippers had no answer to getting themselves back into the lead.
The points they’d given up in the quarter were just too much, and Utah ran away with it because of that.
Now against Denver they need to prevent that from happening again if they hope to win.
The Clippers can’t just bring it one quarter, and then not the next. That isn’t a recipe for success, so L.A. needs to be consistent through four periods of play if they hope to earn the “W”.
The Denver Nuggets dominated the Los Angeles Lakers in their last outing, and defense played a huge part in that.
Denver held the Lakers to just six three-pointers on the night (shot 30% from deep) and 43.3% shooting from the field. That was one of the key reasons why Denver thoroughly outplayed them, because Los Angeles couldn’t get anything going.
But now if they hope to win next game they’ve got to do the exact same thing.
If Denver can hold the Clippers to 100 points or less they’ll make it easier on themselves to win the game, because Los Angeles relies on their scoring to bring the other facets of their game out.
But if Denver prevents that, they’ll double their chances of winning this game.
