Featured Game | Los Angeles Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets
Why the Nuggets can cover
Denver has already dominated Los Angeles once this month, blowing out the Clippers in a 122-91 win last Thursday. The Nuggets have added wins over the Cavaliers, Lakers and Suns since then, with all three of those wins coming by double digits as well. They’ve covered the spread at a 7-1-1 clip of their last nine games and have won seven of the last eight meetings between these teams.
Center Nikola Jokic leads Denver with 24.9 points, 11.0 rebounds and 9.7 assists per game, although he’s questionable for this game as a result of right wrist injury management. He has not missed a game since Nov. 20, but there may be a likelihood that the team could rest him on Friday. The Nuggets have six other players scoring in double figures, including Jamal Murray’s 18.4 points per game.
Why the Clippers can cover
Los Angeles is coming off one among its best performances of the season, picking up a 113-101 win against Dallas as a 1-point favorite on Tuesday night. Kawhi Leonard poured in a season-high 33 points, while Norman Powell added 27 points, helping the Clippers overcome a 43-point showing from Luka Doncic. Leonard has been playing his best basketball in several years, scoring at the least 24 points in 4 of his last five games.
He missed last season as a result of a knee injury, but he has now played at the least 36 minutes in consecutive games for the primary time in two seasons. The 2-time NBA Finals MVP set the tone against Dallas with 11 first-quarter points.
