When the Denver Nuggets play the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night, they will attempt to continue their current four-game winning streak. Denver defeated the Clippers last week by a score of 122-91 to start off a flawless four-game homestand. Los Angeles, meanwhile, ended its six-game losing streak by defeating Dallas on Tuesday, 113-101.
Los Angeles recently put on one of its best performances of the year, defeating Dallas 113-101 on Tuesday night as a 1-point favorite. The Clippers overcame Luka Doncic’s 43-point performance thanks to Kawhi Leonard’s season-high 33 points and Norman Powell’s 27 points. With at least 24 points in four of his last five games, Leonard is having his greatest basketball season in a while.
He was out for the entirety of the previous season because of a knee injury, but for the first time in the past two years, he has now played at least 36 minutes in each of consecutive games. The two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player set the tone for the game with 11 points scored in the opening quarter versus Dallas.
Denver has already thoroughly crushed Los Angeles this month, defeating the Clippers last Thursday by a score of 122-91. Since then, the Nuggets have added victories over the Cavaliers, Lakers, and Suns, all of which were also by double digits. They have won seven of the previous eight encounters between these clubs, covering the spread at a 7-1-1 rate in their last nine games.
With 24.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 9.7 assists per game, center Nikola Jokic leads Denver. However, owing to right wrist injury management, he is questionable for this game. Although he hasn’t missed a game since November 20, the team might decide to rest him on Friday. Six other Nuggets players average double figures, including Jamal Murray, who averages 18.4 points per game.
