Betting Trend to Know
The Clippers have had an up-and-down season thus far, and face the Nuggets who are currently the second-best team in the Western conference. Against West teams with a win percentage above .600, the Clippers are just 5-6 against the spread this season.
Rob Perez: Too Much Star Power
This is the biggest game of the year for the Clippers after planting their flag on the Lakers and the city of Los Angeles on Christmas Day. The No. 2-seed could very well be on the line tonight at Staples Center as the Nuggets and Clips are only separated by one game in the standings (as noted above), with the Nuggets currently in the two slot and the Clippers in the three.
If these two teams ultimately do fall in these seeds, they are very likely headed for a second-round matchup where home court will be essential.
