Take the over. This might be a heavy public play right now but it is absolutely the right side. The Nuggets come into this game having just knocked off the Jazz a few days ago. In that series they ran the pick and roll a ton with Murray and Jokic. Both guys as we saw are more than capable of knocking down a 3 if left open and the Clips bigs don't like to venture from underneath the basket all that much. With the way the Nuggets shot the ball last series they will have plenty of chances for open looks off the pick and roll in this match up. The Clippers didn't do a good job defending the Mavs pick and roll whatsoever. The Clippers are well rested and bring plenty of offensive firepower to this series. The Nuggets defense was bad against the Jazz and the Clippers are much better offensively. This game will be fast paced with lots of scoring and it will sail over the total.
