Last night, the Nuggets took off to Los Angeles last night to face Chris Paul and the LA Clippers tonight. The Clippers are currently starting their own three game home stand with the Nuggets at the beginning of their lineup.
The Nuggets just ended their three game home stand going 3-0 and look to continue winning on the road. Their win last night against Dallas left them 12-16 on the season. The Clippers, currently 20-8, look to try and beat the Nuggets tonight in the continued absence of All-Star Blake Griffin. Griffin was scheduled to undergo a minor procedure today and is expected to be out for 3-6 weeks.
Currently, the Nuggets are averaging 107.4 games on the season (and 125.3 for the last three games) and giving up 109.4 points per game, while the Clippers are averaging 109.6 points per game and allowing 101.6 points per game.
Keys to a Nuggets Victory:
- Smart defense
- No stupid fouls
- Strong offense
- Smart shots from the perimeter
Nuggets: No reported injuries
Clippers: Blake Griffin (right knee)
