DEN vs LAC Match Prediction
Denver is coming off a close loss against the Kings so they will be hungry to get their maiden win against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clips will be buoyed after the win against the Lakers. This game will feature a number of versatile players such as the Joker and the Claw, so it will be an evenly matched battle. While Clippers have more experience than Nuggets, the Joker-led Denver has a lot of energy and bench depth. This game may belong to the Clippers since Paul George may have found his groove and a talent like Kawhi makes for a winning team.
Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Clippers, Key Players:
Nikola Jokic: Nikola Jokic is a triple-double machine, and it will not be a surprise if he repeats the same against the Clippers. The statistical juggernaut showed his prowess in the meeting against the Kings, he scored 29 points, grabbed 15 rebounds, and dished out 14 assists. Along with this more than impressive basic stat line, he also had 3 blocks. Therefore, it can be easily argued that Nikola is the type best suited for the Super-Player pick in the Dream11 fantasy basketball match-up.
Kawhi Leonard: Kawhi, also known as the Claw had a stellar outing against the Lakers that enabled his team to win the game. He managed 26 points, 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and 2 steals during the game. Kawhi will look to continue his heavy scoring ways in the quest to make his team a Championship one.
Jamal Murray: Jamal had a frustrating outing against the meeting against Kings. He only scored 9 points(shooting a paltry 1/9), 4 rebounds, and 2 steals and was fouled out to finish his dwindling performance. However, you can count on the shifty Jamal to make it up in the game against the Clippers as he is one of the emerging guards in the League.
Paul George: Paul George had an up and down 2019-20 season and if the first game is any indication then he is returning to his Superstar form yet again. He scored 33 points, stacked up 6 rebounds, distributed 3 assists, and got his hands on 1 steal during the Clippers' win against the Lakers, basically, he led the Clippers’ comeback effort to prevail against the mighty Lakers. Paul George might be getting back in the groove.
Michael Porter Jr.: The 22-year-old is really a mouth-watering talent in the League and will be looking to have a breakout season. His first game performance is an indication of his talent, he managed 24 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks, and 2 steals in the outing against the Kings.
Paul Millsap: The talented veteran Power Forward has made consistent contributions for the Nuggets since his arrival here. He proved that point through his performance against the Kings, where he posted 16 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists.
Serge Ibaka: The Clippers’ big man is a consistent performer on both ends of the court. He finished the outing against the Lakers with impressive numbers of 15 points, 6 rebounds, and 1 block to continue his consistent ways.
Note– Will Barton had an impressive stat line of 16 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block in the fixture against the Kings.
Ivica Zubac posted 11 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 1 block in the game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
