Los Angeles Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers are currently the 9th team in the Western Conference right now. The Clippers are one game back from the 8th place Nuggets, so the Clippers are aware this game is big. The Clippers are going to need a win at Denver to get right back into contention.
The Clippers recently got a big road win at Phoenix, 128-117. Lou Williams led the Clippers with 35 points in the 11 point win. Aside from Williams big time play, Tobias Harris dropped 30 on 10 of 15 shooting from the floor and 5 of 7 from three point land in the win.
If the Clippers are going to get the win in Denver, they must play well on the road. The Clippers are 15-15 when on the road this season. Lou Williams is leading the team in scoring with 23.5 points per game this year. If Williams can get some help from the rest of the Clippers roster, expect the Clippers to make this one close.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Clippers are allowing 107.7 points per game this season. Good enough to rank the Clippers 22nd in points allowed this year. The Clippers held Denver to 104 points in the first game. In order to win this one, they must do the same against the Nuggets.
As Lou Williams goes, so do the Clippers. Without Williams, the Clippers could kiss their playoff hopes goodbye. Expect Williams to have a big game against Denver.
The Denver Nuggets are holding on for dear life to the 8th playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Nuggets took a tough home loss to the Rockets in their last game, but are still winners of four of their last five games. Denver is going to need a big game from Jokic in this one.
Jokic has been the Nuggets best player this season. He is averaging 17.2 points and 10.7 rebounds per game this year. His 10.7 rebounds lead the Nuggets and he is ranked second on the team in scoring. With his emergence, the Nuggets find themselves scratching to stay in Western Conference playoff contention.
On the defensive side of the ball, the team is allowing 107.2 points per game. Good enough to rank the Nuggets 20th in points scored this season. Look for the Nuggets to get a big game from Gary Harris Jr. and Jamal Murray. The two are good compliments around Jokic. Especially at home..
