The Denver Nuggets could also use a nice victory after losing four of their last five games. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 101.2 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 108.8 points on 49.2 percent shooting. Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18.1 points and 5.6 rebounds while Will Barton is averaging 14.4 points and two assists. Emmanuel Mudiay is dishing 6.4 assists and J.J. Hickson is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting just 29.4 percent from downtown and getting 60.8 points from their starting unit. The Nuggets are 3-6 this season when allowing 100 or more points. The Nuggets have split their last 10 home games. Kenneth Faried is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Clippers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Clippers are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Denver and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Clippers just don't look like the Clippers right now. While the Nuggets aren't winning many games, they are competing and have improved offensively. I like the value of the points here, especially with the Clips stinking up the joint lately.
