With the other three series complete, the Clippers will look to clinch their first-ever Conference Finals berth to become the final participant. Meanwhile, the Nuggets will seek to replicate what they did in the first round by coming back to win the series after trailing 1-3.
Los Angeles Clippers
The two superstars on the Clippers had big games with Kawhi Leonard posting 36 points, nine rebounds, and five assists. Paul George registered 26 points, six rebounds, and six assists.
The Clippers roster is completely healthy with no one on the injured reserve list.
Denver seems to enjoy playing the role of underdog as they’ve staved off elimination in five out of six opportunities the past two seasons. They’ll look to make that six out of seven on Sunday.
In Game 5, the Nuggets were down 15 points in the second half prior to Paul Millsap taking offense at the Clippers starting to yap at him and LA seemingly already celebrating their win.
Millsap stood up to Marcus Morris and then dropped 14 points in the frame to spark the comeback.
Jamal Murray led the way with 26 points, seven assists, and eight rebounds, Nikola Jokic offered a double-double of 22 points and 14 rebounds. Millsap finished with 17 points while Monte Morris (12) and Jerami Grant (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
While Michael Porter Jr. caused some conflict with his post-game comments after Game 4 his seven points may not have been overwhelming but the late-game 3-point shot he hit and a well-timed block were critical to the Nuggets win.
Vlatko Cancar (broken left foot) and Will Barton (soreness in his right knee) both remain out with no definitive return date.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
When the Clippers focus on the game plan they seem to manhandle the Nuggets. But LA has a terrible habit of letting their foot off the gas and getting in the faces of their opponents forgetting that every team has quality players who take offense to that type of behavior.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets +8.5
The Clippers can keep playing with fire because eventually, they’ll pay a hefty price. Doc Rivers will be telling his team to stop talking and focus their efforts on defense.
Leonard is the type of player who can win a game all on his own but no doubt he’ll be reminding his teammates their bravado just cost everyone an extra rest day with the Lakers now awaiting their conference finals opponent.
Conversely, the Nuggets backs are against the wall but they can play free knowing everyone expects them to lose. And if they win and force a Game 7 anything can happen.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
