What you need to know about the Nuggets
The Nuggets have to be aching after a bruising 125-102 loss to the Utah Jazz on Sunday. Center Nikola Jokic put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a triple-double on 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 14 dimes.
Jokic is again playing at a MVP-caliber level, and actually is having a better season, statistically speaking, than his MVP campaign a year ago. Jokic's supporting cast has been streaky, but does have the ability to light up the scoreboard when things are clicking. Denver is 18-24 against the spread in 2021-22.
What you need to know about the Clippers
Meanwhile, Los Angeles didn't have too much breathing room in their game with the Indiana Pacers on Monday, but they still walked away with a 139-133 win. The Clippers can attribute much of their success to power forward Nicolas Batum, who shot 7-for-10 from downtown and finished with 32 points and five boards.
Los Angeles came out on top in a nail-biter against Denver in the teams' previous meeting earlier this month, sneaking past the Nuggets 87-85. The rematch might be a little tougher for Los Angeles since the squad won't have home-court advantage, and they will be playing without Paul George (elbow). The Clippers are 20-25 against the spread this season.
