The Nuggets seemed poised to take the series lead but the Clippers erased a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit and took the lead both in Game 3 and the series.
LA will attempt to gain a stranglehold on the series in Game 4 while the Nuggets will attempt to avoid a second consecutive series of falling behind 3-1.
Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard bounced back from a sub-par Game 2 effort (for him) to register a double-double of 23 points and 14 rebounds along with six assists.
The Clippers roster is completely healthy with no one on the injured reserve list.
Through three games in this semi-finals series, star Jamal Murray has struggled. The Canadian will attempt to channel games four through six from the first round when he put on a scoring exhibition of 50, 42, and 50 points.
Aside from a strong initial opening quarter in Game 2, Murray hasn’t come close to that effort. In Game 3, he scored a mere 14 points on 5 of 17 from the field and is just 20 of 53 in the series. His perimeter shot has gone AWOL shooting just above 30 percent on 7 of 23 attempts.
His partner in crime Nikola Jokic has been much more effective coming close to a triple-double with 32 points, 12 rebounds, and eight assists and did it all while nursing a sore wrist that threatened to keep him sidelined in Game 3.
All five Nuggets starters registered double-figure scoring and Michael Porter Jr. came off the bench to deliver a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds.
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:
Nuggets head coach Mike Malone isn’t happy with the narrative or lack of respect his Nuggets squad are receiving off the court or on it from the refs. In Game 3, LA held a 26 to 10 free throw edge.
Which makes the comments made by Patrick Beverley all the more perplexing. He called both Mavericks Luka Doncic and Jokic floppers. This from one of the league’s most notorious floppers.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets +8
The problem is anyone who watched either series knows the Clippers have players like Morris and Beverley who go out of their way to target the stars, throw questionable (dirty?) shots, and try to get under the skin of the player(s) who cause LA the most trouble.
Beverley may wish he’d kept quiet because his comments will likely draw more attention to Jokic now and that could lead to increased free throws instead of less and in my opinion that will be the difference in who wins Game 4.
***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.
