DEN vs LAC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Los Angeles Clippers will be facing one of the biggest odds in winning their next match as they host an irresistible Denver Nuggets side at in an NBA match at Staples Center, in Los Angeles, on Sunday morning (IST).

Los Angeles Clippers:

The Clippers finally came good in an NBA match as they ended their four-game skid with a home win over Dallas Mavericks at Staples Center.

But the result could have been negative once again had one certain star not been in the matchday squad. Yes, it was Louis Williams who made the difference and helped his team to win the match 125-121.

Clippers’ best player this season Tobias Harris could only manager 16 points in the match and struggled inside the pain all evening. While Danilo Gallinari ended up with a joint-best game-high as he scored 32 points in the match. Out of Clippers; 125 points, only 60 points were scored by the starters, while Williams led the charge with the help of the 2nd unit.

The 32-year-old American didn’t show any rustiness in his game as he was returning from injury. He spent 24 minutes on the court and ended with a massive 26 points in the game, while Montrezl Harrell scored 18 crucial points and 6 rebounds in the match.

The win helped Clippers climbed to 6th in the Western Conference and at 18-13 record so far this season, they are level with Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers.

Denver Nuggets:

Seven players dropped points in the double digits in the 126-118 win over Dallas Mavericks as Denver Nuggets continued to roll in the NBA this season. Nobody could have predicted the numbers they have accumulated this season up until now.

With a 21-9 record this season, they are sitting at the summit of the Western Conference heading into this match. While the reigning NBA Champions Golden State Warriors are at 3rd and still two games away from matching Nuggets’ record this season.

It was their fourth win on the trot and 13th overall in front of their own fans. Denver have lost just three home games this season, the joint-fewest defeats in home games in the 2018-19 campaign.

Regular Season Record-
Los Angeles Clippers: W-18, L-13
Denver Nuggets: W-21, L-9

Players to watch out for:
Los Angeles Clippers:
Tobias Harris – A top-class talent in Los Angeles Clippers’ roster, Tobias Harris is a key for his team’s ambitions this season. The 26-year-old New York-born Small-Forward is scoring points at 21.8 per game and remains the only Clippers’ player to average in the 20s this season.
Danilo Gallinari – He can make a difference and is quite consistent in scoring. Only once he had failed to touch the double-digit mark this season, in the 118-125 loss to Washington Wizards where he could score just three points. The 30-year-old can be a shrewd addition to any team.

Denver Nuggets:
Nikola Jokic – It’s quite amazing to look at Denver Nuggets record and at the players’ stats this season. Despite Nuggets boasting the best record across both the conferences, they have no player in their ranks averaging in the 20s. The one who can come closest is Nikola Jokic who is scoring at 17.7 points per game this season.
Jamal Murray – We all know how big a future this player has and he is not afraid to have a go against the ‘best’ on the court. For the season, his numbers are good enough for his age, 17.5 points per game.
