It’s possible that the key for the Clippers to win game seven is to not get a big lead that Denver can come back from like they have in each of the last two games to force this game seven, Denver’s fourth in the last two seasons which is surprising for such a young team. However, that just goes to show that these Nuggets are no pushovers and can handle the pressure of a winner take all game. The Nuggets have also gone 5-0 in elimination games this postseason alone. The Clippers are talented, there’s no denying it, and Kawhi Leonard is capable of putting a team on his back and getting the job done, just ask me. I’m a Raptors fan and I’ll tell you that was the case from the championship run for Toronto last season. The difference here is that I think Kawhi went to the Clippers so he didn’t have to put the team on his back and that he could have some help and the help just hasn’t come, and it’s resulted in going from being up 3-1 to now playing in a winner take all game. The Clippers are also 0-6 with a chance to clinch a conference finals appearance, the longest streak in NBA history! I just think that the Nuggets have all of the momentum and are full of confidence right now and while the league would probably like to see a battle of L.A. in the conference finals, I’d much rather see the upstart Nuggets against the Lakers and I’m predicting that’s what we see in game one on Thursday. Give me the Denver Nuggets on the money line to win this game outright as my premium pick for this game.
