Getting into a shootout and putting up 175 points is a ton of fun — until you end up losing that match by a single point.
Although there were ample positives to pull from the sting of losing that way has lasting effects.
Russell Westbrook made his debut in that game and for all intents and purposes fit in seamlessly. Mason Plumlee and Eric Gordon have also fit in perfectly with their new squad making them the deepest team in the association.
On the negative side, presently, LA ranks 28th for scoring averaging 111.0 points per game while shooting 46.8% from the field and 37.7% from the perimeter ranking 21st and seventh respectively.
Opponents average 111.0 points per game ranking fourth lowest overall while allowing opponents to shoot 46.9% from the field and 36.3% from the perimeter ranking ninth and 18th respectively.
To summarize the LA Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns injury report…
- Ivica Zubac C (OUT – right calf strain)
Although the Grizzlies took it to the Nuggets it’s not necessarily a sign of anything given Aaron Gordon is still sidelined and Denver wasn’t in the same ‘must-win’ mode as Memphis.
In addition, the Nuggets are a .500 road team so as long as they retain home-court seeding throughout the playoffs they’ll just need to win once on the road which they’re more than capable of.
On the positive side, Denver possesses the best offense in the league highlighted by scoring 117.1 points per game ranking sixth. Denver is shooting the best field goal percentage of 51.1% as well as the top-ranked perimeter efficiency of 39.3%.
To be sure, defensively the Nuggets are improving. So far, they allow opponents to score 112.8 points per game which ranks 13th while limiting foes to 48.0% from the field and 34.9% from deep ranking 22nd and seventh respectively.
Denver hadn’t submitted their updated injury report as of posting but to this is who is likely on the list…
- Aaron Gordon PF (OUT – rib contusion)
- Zeke Nnaji PF (OUT- shoulder)
- Collin Gillespie PG (OUT – leg fracture)

Free LA Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
This could be another loss for the Nuggets since the Clippers have the rest advantage albeit only four teams have won at Ball Arena this season. Without Zubac, it means Mason Plumlee will have his hands full trying to stop Nikola Jokic and that’s an impossible task.
Denver is 4-4 in the second game of back-to-back sets but all four losses occurred on the road. LA like Memphis will be playing with more desperation so I’ll take the points.
