After a disappointing 86 points in their last match, the Nuggets made sure to put some points up on the board against the Spurs on Sunday. Denver came out on top against San Antonio by a score of 132-120.

Nikola Jokic was his usual excellent self, almost dropping a triple-double on 39 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists. The match was his third in a row with at least 30 points.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles strolled past Dallas with points to spare on Saturday, taking the game 107-88.

Denver has yet to lose a contest at home this season, leaving them with a 11-6 record. Those victories were due in large part to their offensive dominance across that stretch, as they averaged 120.3 points per game. As for Los Angeles, they are on a roll lately: they've won four of their last five matchups, which provided a nice bump to their 7-8 record this season.

The Clippers and the Nuggets pleased both fans and bettors in their last games by winning and covering the spread. As for their next game, the Clippers are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 10.5 points. Bettors picking Denver against the spread have some confidence (to put it mildly), as the team is sitting on a seven-game streak of failing to cover when playing on the road.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Nuggets haven't given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 12.8 turnovers per game.
