Game thread: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

The Nuggets look to complete the LA double in a Sunday afternoon affair.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off a convincing victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, the Denver Nuggets face off against concomitant Staple Center tenants the Los Angeles Clippers. To my admittedly fallible memory, it seems like the Nuggets always struggle in these afternoon tilts. They always appear to come out flat and lacking energy. Also, facing a team as talented and sure of their identity as are the Clippers could lead to a long Easter Sunday for the Nuggets. With that being said, the Clippers appear to be safely locked into the four spot in the Western conference playoff seedings, so there's a chance that Los Angeles overlooks the Nuggets as a middling team starting and playing a lot of very young, inexperienced players. Hopefully both teams overcome these tendencies and we get a hard fought game...


...ending in a Nuggets victory.
