In game 5 as has been the case a few times in this series the Clippers have showed their superiority vs the Nuggets, before falling asleep at the proverbial wheel and allowing the Nuggets to mount a comeback. Now knowing the Nuggets will not easily be beaten down, Im expecting Kawhi Leonard and company to come out here with a huge effort and cancel any hopes the Nuggets have of taking this to a game 7. Note: The Nuggets are averaging just 96.3 PPG in their three losses which shows me that when the Clippers are focused the Nuggets are in trouble. Im betting the Clippers will be very focused in this one. You have to remember that the Clippers have won 18 of 20 quarters in this series and a compete start to finish 4 quarter win effort is not out of the question.
LA CLIPPERS are 7-0 ATS after a loss by 6 points or less this season with a the average combined margin of victory coming by 23.4 ppg.
DENVER is 4-15 ATS in road games after covering 3 of their last 4 against the spread over the last 2 seasons.
