Los Angeles Clippers play host to Denver Nuggets in the pre-season game at Staples Center.
Clippers created the biggest noise within the NBA fraternity after signing some high -profile players.
Not only Clippers acquired Paul George from Oklahoma City Thunder, but the franchise also signed reigning NBA finals MVP Kawhi Leonard from Toronto Raptors.
George’s deal, though, cost the team a record number of draft picks, but the fact that the Clippers managed to hold onto their big rotation players, makes them a very dangerous team when at full strength.
Nuggets meanwhile kept 12 players from the last season, the most by any NBA team heading into the 2019-20 season.
There is hope that the team can do better than last season, adn should aim at least the conference semi-finals.
What competition it is? NBA Pre-season 2019
The match will be played between Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets at Staples Center, in Downtown, Los Angeles. The arena has a capacity of 21,000.
Match Day: October 11, 2019, @ 08:00 AM IST
