The Nuggets are 9-1 against the Clippers since April of 2021, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Tuesday. The Denver Nuggets will be playing at home against the Los Angeles Clippers at 10:00 p.m. ET at Ball Arena. The timing is sure in the Nuggets’ favor as the squad sits on six straight wins at home while the Clippers have not had much luck on the away from home, with five straight road losses.
The point spread may have favored the Nuggets last Sunday, but the final result did not. They fell just short of Houston by a score of 107-104.
Nikola Jokic put forth a good effort for the losing side as he dropped a triple-double on 36 points, 21 rebounds, and 11 assists. The match was Jokic’s third in a row with at least 30 points.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as they fell 105-101 to Memphis.

This contest will be their 11th straight as the favorites (so far over this stretch they are 5-5 against the spread).
