Los Angeles Clippers
The LA Clippers enter this game as the No. 7 scoring team this season. They’re currently posting 114.2 points per contest.
Defensively, this group has some work to do. It is currently allowing opposing teams to post 113.7 points per game against them.
That number is only good enough for 24th in the Association.
When looking at advanced metrics, the Clippers drop a bit on offense down to 11th in Offensive Efficiency. They are scoring 109.1 points per 100 possessions, sandwiching them in between the No. 12 Oklahoma City Thunder and No. 10 Portland Trail Blazers—two competitive Western Conference teams currently in the top four seeds out West.
Defensively, the Clippers rise in the rankings when looking at points allowed per 100 possessions, but just to No. 20.
Currently, they give up 108.8 points per 100 possessions, which is only good enough to put them between the No. 21 Charlotte Hornets and No. 19 Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Denver Nuggets enter this game as the No. 2 team in the Western Conference, but they have their eyes on that top seed and home-court advantage in a potential Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
At this point in the 2018-19 campaign, the Nuggets are posting 112 points per game. That number is only good enough 16th in the league, but that raw stat doesn’t tell the whole story.
Denver, this season, is running the No. 28 (out of 30) pace in the entire NBA. That has more to do with them being in the bottom half of the league in scoring than their actual offense.
Need proof? Look no further than their Offensive Efficiency.
Denver ranks No. 4 in the entire league in points scored per 100 possessions at 111.2—just 0.4 points per 100 possessions behind the No. 2 Houston Rockets.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Denver Nuggets are just 15th in Defensive Efficiency this season, which means they’re going to give the LA Clippers plenty of opportunities to put the orange in the cup.
The question is, will the Clips find enough offensive firepower to beat the double-digit spread?
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: LAC ATS
The Nuggets should come away with the win straight up, but Lou Williams alone should keep the Clips within 10 points.
Sweet Lou has been on a tear, and as long as he finds the touch early in this one, he’ll help the Clippers pull off the ATS victory.
