Los Angeles Clippers vs Denver Nuggets – NBA: The Los Angeles Clippers have a 42-37 record
And with so much balance on the top 8 spots, they have been climbing and climbing, being now close to the play-off spots, in 10th place, 2.5 wins away from the Timberwolves.
They have been playing well but it is practically impossible for them to finish in the top 8, especially when there are less than 10 games left to play and they still have the Nuggets ahead of them (in 9th place), with 1 more win, so I’d say that it is really a mirage for them.
I think they have quality and good players, but they are lacking 1 or 2 extra stars and if they for example finish in 9th or 10th place they will also have the chance to have a good pick on the draft.
The team is now on a worse stage, winning only 2 of their last 5 games, but I should also highlight that the losses were against very strong opponents.
The Denver Nuggets are clearly play-off candidates, something that hasn’t happened for a long time.
The team is with a 44-34 record and they are in 9th place of the West (out of the play-offs) but with a win tonight, they can match 4 teams (that go up to 5th place).
We haven’t seen the Nuggets on such a good position for quite some time. They have clearly been presenting improvements, continuing with a fast and offensive basketball, like we can see by their latest games, with the team surpassing the 100 points in practically all matches.
The team is now on a streak of 4 consecutive victories, beating the Thunder, the Bucks, the Pacers and the Timberwolves, all play-off teams, and those victories give the team some good morale.
The schedule only has 3 games left, so we’ll see how the team will approach this final stretch.
Los Angeles Clippers vs Denver Nuggets – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Clippers are practically out of it and the Nuggets have a lot to play for.
A win here could put a lot of pressure on their opponents. I believe this game will have a lot of points, but I see the Nuggets taking the win here.
