It was an exhilarating opening night against the Los Angeles Lakers Outside of a difficult second quarter, the LA Clippers scored a wire-to-wire win over their rivals in the city, so they’re going to try that energy against the Nuggets now to bring to Denver

In the regular season last year, the Clippers won 2 of 3 games, averaging 120 points per game. Paul George was particularly effective against Denver in the regular season, shooting 59% from three to eight5 shots per game

In the playoffs we all know what happened there. After the 3-1 win, everyone on the team got cold and to quote my favorite film, that’s all I have to say

The Clippers will surely want revenge for their loss to that Nuggets squad in the playoffs and they have taken the squad steps to do so, replacing Serge Ibaka with Montrezl Harrell ensures Nikola Jokic doesn’t get the pleasure has to be guarded by a 6’8 center

Really, the Clippers have a lot of rotation to go against the Nuggets There will always be a good Defensive 5 on the ground and Jokic will always have to work for his numbers.If Zubac and Serge can hold back the great Serbian man it will go a long way towards making another notch in the profit column. p>

The Clippers’ wings have their hands full to keep Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr for Denver, but it’s safe to assume they’ll be able to find their shots against a wing rotation in Denver that is a little defensive

On the LA Clippers injury front, Marcus Morris will miss the game with knee pain which also kept him out of the Lakers game for the Nuggets, JaMychal Green won’t make his reunion after leaving the Clippers to join Denver in His Kalb will keep him out of this game after he also missed the season opener for the Nuggets
