Seeding is on the line in this match as the LA Clippers face the Denver Nuggets. These two teams are battling for the second and third seeds with the Clippers up 1.5 games on Denver.
Los Angeles Clippers
In the offseason owner, Steve Ballmer pushed all his chips in to go get not one but two superstars and has continued to add talent throughout the season.
The resulting effect is the deepest team in the league. Every position has players two-deep and sometimes three-deep that would start on most teams.
Despite Kawhi Leonard scoring 39 points and Lou Williams adding 18, the Clippers lost to the Nets in their last seeding game.
Unfortunately, for coach Doc Rivers he hasn’t had much opportunity to get his roster minutes together in the bubble with players arriving late due to positive COVID-19 tests or others having to leave for personal reasons.
Montrezl Harrell was away grieving the loss of a family member but is now back and quarantining in the bubble. He won’t be ready for this game.
Patrick Beverley missed the last two games with a calf strain and won’t play in this game. Landry Shamet is also out with a sore foot.
The Nuggets had an opportunity to close the gap on Monday in a match versus the Lakers but Kyle Kuzma hit a 3-pointer at game end that gave the Lakers a 124-121 win.
And, for as much as the Nuggets were competing for the win they did not play any of their starters in the final frame.
In fact, coach Mike Malone split up the minutes evenly his staring five playing the first and third quarters and his reserve unit playing the second and fourth frames.
That sort of tells us the Nuggets would prefer to play one of the Rockets, Thunder, or Jazz instead of the Mavericks.
Malone’s move seemed smart given eight different players scored in double-figures with P.J. Dozier (18 points) leading the way.
Jerami Grant missed the match versus the Lakers nursing a sore right knee and is questionable for Wednesday. Both Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee) remain out with no definitive return date.
NBA Betting Trends:
- LAC are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
- Favorite is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
- Under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Denver
Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Nuggets are 3-3 with two of their wins coming in overtime while the Clippers also have a 3-3 record through six matches.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets +5.5
Neither team seems overly invested in having to win and is more cognizant of playing well and keeping everyone healthy. It won’t be surprising if Malone splits the minutes between his stars and reserves again or if Doc sits one of Leonard, Paul George or both.
