The Denver Nuggets haven’t looked all that great in 3 preseason games, and that’s expected, given they’re a team that knows what it has. The Los Angeles Clippers have been competitive through 3 tries, and even their loss to the Timberwolves was back and forth. Last preseason game for the Clippers, so they could play some of their key guys a bit. Also, Ontario doesn’t get NBA games, so I’d expect guys to want to put on a show. Either way, give me the Clippers and the small number.
