The Nuggets had a pretty fierce battle with the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs, and we can say that they escaped by a hairsbreadth after they managed to win their seventh game in the competition. On the other hand, the Clippers didn’t have that much of a challenge with the Mavericks. Although it wasn’t a smooth trip for them, it indeed wasn’t as challenging as what the Nuggets had to go through.
In this article, we’ll compare and contrast their stats to see which team is in a better position to win in their game tomorrow. We’ll take a close look at their head to head stats, their previous games, and what the outcomes were, and then we’ll predict what the results would be so that you can have a clearer understanding of the situation before you stake your money.
Head to Head
The Los Angeles Clippers and the Denver Nuggets have what we can call a competition duel. Although the margin is reasonably high, it isn’t high enough for anyone to conclude that the Denver Nuggets will be an easy win for the Los Angeles Clippers.
In the regular-season games, the Clippers and the Nuggets have played 178 games, and the Clippers have recorded more wins. The Clippers have won 97 games while the Nuggets have won 81, leaving the margin at 16 games.
Something interesting has been happening in their duel since the 2016/2017 season, however. It looks like the Nuggets are getting the upper hand recently. They have won in 8 of their 14 meetings, and the Clippers have won 6. This could be an improvement that could lead the Nuggets to clear off the margin between them and the Clippers.
In the playoffs, the Clippers are also on top of the Nuggets as they have been able to win in five of their six meetings. Now, they’re currently leading with one game, but we’re pretty sure that the Nuggets won’t let a winning streak be recorded on them.
Previous Games Records
The Los Angeles Clippers have done pretty satisfactorily in the 2019/2020 season. They’ve had some lovely wins. Although they’ve had some losses too, their successes almost completely drown their losses as you’d expect. They’ve had a winning streak of up to 7 matches, and their highest losing streak is just 3. It’s not an easy feat when you’re playing against much more challenging and better-composed teams.
We can say that the two teams have the same records in terms of winning and losing streaks. The Nuggets are doing their entire best, and they’ve not had an entirely lousy season; as a matter of fact, they have also had a 7-game winning streak, and that’s their highest this season. They’ve also not had more than a 3-game losing streak this season.
We’ll leave the odds at 2.5 for the Clippers to win the Nuggets’ one and 2.0 to win.
May the better side win.
