January 5, 2023



Game Preview

On Thursday, the Los Angeles Clippers will travel to Ball Arena to face the Denver Nuggets. After losing their most recent games, both LA and Denver have an opportunity to improve their record in this encounter. Will the Nuggets defend their home floor and earn their 25th victory of the season, or will the Clippers pick up a win on the road?
Los Angeles enters this contest with a record of 21-18, but the Clippers’ recent performance and injury report raise some concerns. Denver, however, has won seven of its last ten games and has finally gotten all of its key players back to full health.
The Denver Nuggets are the top seed in the Western Conference heading into this game because of their dominance over many of their opponents this season, but when it comes to playing on their home court, they are even more dominant. The Nuggets have a 119.1 Offensive Rating at home, which is second in the NBA behind only the Celtics.
Denver is shooting the ball with a phenomenal amount of efficiency, which explains why the rating is so high. The Nuggets had the highest home field goal percentage in the NBA this year at 52.1%. Denver also has the highest three-point percentage in the league at 41.9%.
Meanwhile, The Los Angeles Clippers recently began a run of eight consecutive games against Eastern Conference opponents. They played poorly during that span, going 4-4 and dropping the final three games.
The Clippers have played respectable b-ball this season versus opponents from the Eastern Conference, going 10-7, despite the latest collapse. However, their performance versus teams from the Western Conference is far worse, which is cause for concern.
Paul George’s health, which is in doubt due to a hamstring injury, will be a crucial factor in this battle. He missed a few games earlier this season due to the same ailment, and LA has struggled without him as evidenced by their 4-6 record, 106.3 point average, and 43.8% shooting in those games.
