Kawhi Leonard is averaging 26 points and 6.3 rebounds while Paul George is averaging 22.5 points and 6.3 rebounds.

The Nuggets are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Clippers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Nuggets last 6 road games. The over is 5-2 in Clippers last 7 home games. The Nuggets are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers are playing some really good baseball right now, which includes wins in six of their last seven tries, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 14.6 points. However, the Clippers are a banged up team right now and PG13 is ruled out with a foot injury on top of all of the other injured players. The Denver Nuggets are healthy and the addition of Aaron Gordon is paying off. The Nuggets have played some of their best ball on the road where they win by an average of 4.5 points. In a toss up, give me the Nuggets.
