Clippers vs Nuggets prediction for their NBA game on Tuesday, November 14th, 2023. Denver is undefeated at home this season.
The Los Angeles Clippers and the Denver Nuggets will meet on Tuesday, November 14th, 2023 (10:00 PM ET/7 PM PT). On a night where there are quite a few NBA games on schedule, this will be among the later games. The Clippers enter this game winless on the road this season at 0-5 as visitors. Furthermore, they have drawn the best home team in the NBA thus far. Denver is undefeated when hosting so far this season at 6-0. With the compiled home-and-away splits at 11-0 in Denver’s favor, the Nuggets look like a clear pick without something compelling suggesting otherwise. My Clippers vs Nuggets prediction is that the latter will win this game.
Los Angeles vs Denver Prediction: Recent NBA Headlines
Denver last played on Sunday night. They lost to the Houston Rockets in a game Houston hosted. Before then, the Nuggets completed a four-game homestand with a win over Golden State. On point differential, Denver went +54 during that homestand.
But the team did lose their starting point guard, Jamal Murray, during the homestand. He is not expected to be available to the team for the balance of November. Denver did play a close game against Golden State during their most recent home game. That was a game without Murray. Denver will probably be a bit more vulnerable against teams with strong guards without their own in the roster.
The Clippers have loads of talent among their guards. Russell Westbrook and James Harden are former MVPs. Also, Norman Powell has often been a major scorer off of the bench for LA over the years. But the Clippers simply have not posted the wins this season. They are 3-6, including 0-4 since James Harden joined the club.
Clippers vs Nuggets Prediction: Betting Tips
The Clippers just handed a win, in a game that they hosted, to the worst team in the NBA so far this season, the Memphis Grizzlies. It would actually be bipolar for them, the Clippers, to go into the NBA champion’s house and deliver a victory.
Stranger things have happened but you wouldn’t bet on it. There should be some concern as to Jamal Murray’s absence and the chance that LA is able to exploit it. It’s never a small deal when a team loses its starting PG. But the situation calls for a moneyline bet on Denver at -235.
