Denver Nuggets (15-13) @ Los Angeles Clippers (21-6)
Time: 10:30 p.m. EST
Line: Los Angeles (-7.0)
Times have really changed when the Clippers are not only the hottest team in Los Angeles, but the hottest team in the league period. Riding a 13 game winning streak and 9-3 home record on the season, CP3, Blake and the crew seem to have all the advantages heading to the tail-end game of a five game slate. Denver’s 7-12 mark on the road, and that pesky issue of never having a legitimate primary scorer always seems to be the Nuggets Achilles Heel. It’s the sole reason why believing in Denver comes with its own set of limitations. At they’re best, the Nuggets are fun as hell to watch though.
Then again, when JaVale McGee’s on your squad, anything is possible. Anything. I’m only halfway joking on that.
