While some thought the blow-out victory by the Clippers in Game 1 meant this series would feature an easy Clippers sweep the Denver Nuggets proved they have the ability to compete when they utilize their size and shooting ability.
Los Angeles Clippers
Superstar Kawhi Leonard finally suffered an off night after posting seven consecutive 29 points or more scoring efforts. The Nuggets swarmed the talented wingman forcing him into bad shots against height or to pass the ball out to his teammates.
Patrick Beverley was ejected from the game with a little over a minute remaining just as his team had cut the lead to eight points.
The timing of his ejection removed all possibility for the comeback as Denver got an additional two free throws to go along with the two for his personal foul on Jerami Grant.
Nikola Jokic showcased his talent in Game 2 of the series highlighting the weaknesses of the LA Clippers who rely on Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell as their centers.
Jokic and Jamal Murray pounced on the Clippers in the first quarter propelling them to a 44-25 opening frame. Jokic finished with a double-double of 26 points and 18 rebounds while Murray tallied 27 points.
The worry coming into Game 3 is big man, Jokic sprained his wrist and may not be able to play Monday.
Four other Clippers registered double-figure scores including Paul Millsap (13), Gary Harris (13), Michael Porter Jr. (11), and Monte Morris (10).
Gary Harris had his best game of the playoffs after missing games due to an injured hip as his defense is keeping Paul George in check and he’s finally hitting his shots.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Clippers seem to fall back on their laurels assuming they can simply snap their fingers and win a game. It forced them into a much longer series versus the Mavericks. If they aren’t careful and keep taking their competition for granted it could happen again with the Nuggets.

That said, the fact the Clippers now know Jokic has a sore wrist if he plays we can expect Clippers bullies Beverley and Morris to take shots at the big man.
Unlike the Mavericks however, Mike Malone’s group won’t just turn a cheek. Instead they’ll return the favor and likely target Leonard and George so Doc Rivers needs to be careful about how he instructs his team to deal with Jokic.
