After seventy-two matches played, the Nuggets are in the sixth position in the Western Conference table, and so far this season they have achieved the result of forty-two victories and thirty defeats. In terms of efficiency, they scored 8016 and received 7840 points, which means that their matches are averaging 220.2 points per game. They are in bad shape at the moment, and they have suffered three defeats in the last five matches. They were defeated by the Toronto Raptors with 127: 115, and then in the next match, they were better than the Philadelphia 76ers with the result of 114: 110. They defeated the Washington Wizards with 127: 109, and then the Cleveland Cavaliers lost 119: 116. In the last match played, they lost convincingly to the Boston Celtics with 124: 104.
The ambitions of the Nuggets are to finish the regular part of the competition among the six best-placed teams on the table of the Western Conference, but their goal has been endangered thanks to the poor results lately. It is the right time to show reaction, and we believe that the Nuggets team led by Nikola Jokić will find a way to defeat the Clippers team, which is objectively much weaker.

Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have secured a place in the playoffs, as they have eight wins more than the eleventh-placed San Antonio Spurs, so they can play the remaining matches without pressure. On the eve of the duel with the Nuggets, the Clippers are in eighth place in the Western Conference table, and in seventy-three matches played, they recorded thirty-six victories and suffered thirty-seven defeats. They scored 7787 and received 7875 points, which gives us the information that their matches are with an average of 214.5 points per game. Just one win in the previous five games is a clear sign that the Clippers team is in very bad shape. The Atlanta Hawks were more successful with 112: 106, and then the Clippers defeated the Detroit Pistons with a score of 106: 102. In the next match, we lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers with 120: 111, and then the Toronto Raptors were better with 103: 100.
In the last match played, they suffered a convincing defeat by the Utah Jazz team with the result of 121: 92. They have had a lot of offensive problems lately, and if they played this game in that rhythm, they have no chance against the Nuggets, who will be more than motivated to end a series of negative results.
Back in action on Tuesday.

Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Clippers Prediction
The Nuggets are a much better team than the Clippers at the moment, and we think it’s time to end a series of negative results. The Clippers have managed to achieve only one victory in the last five matches, and we must say that they had a lot of offensive problems in those matches (106, 106, 111, 100 and 92 points scored). We expect the Nuggets to play much more aggressively in defense in this match and limit the away team to about 100 points, and in support of our idea that this will be a match with fewer points is the tradition of duels between these teams (nine of the last ten matches) ended with less than 222 points scored).
Prediction: Under 222 Points
