There are a lot of injury updates that will need to be followed on Friday night for the game between the Denver Nuggets and the LA Clippers.

Nuggets @ Clippers – NBA: Game at a Glance

  • Denver 28-13 overall: +1.5 (Unibet)
  • Nuggets' moneyline betting odds: -118
  • LA 22-21 overall: -1.5 (Unibet)
  • Clippers' moneyline betting odds: -103
  • Game time: Friday, January 13th, 2023 @ 10 PM ET

The Denver Nuggets will enter the game with an overall record of 28-13 on the season. Their starting point guard, Jamal Murray, was listed as probable for the game with ESPN as of the early hours of Friday. Jokic, from the same source, was day-to-day and that is likely what has made the Nuggets very slight underdogs. Denver is in very good form right now, having improved from 17-11 to 28-13 since December 17th, 2022.

Denver Nuggets: #3 Ranked Team at a Glance

  • Overall record: 28-13
  • Home record: 18-3
  • Away record: 10-10
  • Winning/losing streak: W4
  • Last ten games: 8-2

The LA Clippers are 22-21 on the season. They certainly are not in good form, having lost six of their last seven games. George is out for the game according to Justin Russo and that does offset the Jokic news a little.

This is a game where it is tempting to go with the Nuggets, however, Jokic is all over this team’s success this season. Denver won’t look the same without him while LA will still have Kawhi Leonard, Norman Powell, and a host of supporting players. What you are looking for in this one is for Jokic’s status to improve and then to take the Nuggets.
