Los Angeles Clippers continue on the road and will visit the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. This is the fourth time these teams face off this season, the Nuggets have the lead 2-1 in what have been very close games decided by 2 or 3 points.
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS
The Clippers have lost 4 of their last 5 games and are 16-22 on the road this season with a 36-37 record overall, ranking third in the Pacific division. Los Angeles are 21-25 against Western Conference opponents and have a 15-22 record against opponents over .500.
Reggie Jackson is averaging 17 points and 4.8 assists for the Clippers. Marcus Morris is averaging 16.1 points over the past 10 games for Los Angeles.
In their last 10 games, the Clippers are 4-6, averaging 106.5 points, 44.1 rebounds, 24.3 assists, 7.1 steals and 5.3 blocks per game while shooting 44.3% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 110.6 points.
The Nuggets have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 20-14 at home with a 42-30 record ranking second in the Northwest. They have gone 25-19 against Western Conference teams.

INJURIES: Zeke Nnaji: out (ankle), Vlatko Cancar: out (foot), Michael Porter Jr.: out (back).
LA Clippers are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
LA Clippers are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Denver.
Denver are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Denver's last 5 games.
Practically all of the last 5 head to head games between these two teams have been close games decided by 6 or fewer points and with both teams struggling lately I think this should be another close game. The Nuggets are only 13-12 ATS at home this season and the Clippers have been ok on the road. Nuggets win but Clippers will cover.
PICK: Clippers +6.5 (-110)
