Monday, November 5th, 2010 10:30PM EST

Line: Even


The Clippers are coming off their first win of the season, they will travel to Denver to face the Carmelo-led Nuggets. Los Angeles was able to overcome the Thunder thanks to Eric Gordon’s 27 points and Griffin’s nine rebounds. The Nuggets are coming off a tough loss against the Mavericks last week, but have been able to score the ball this season, averaging 103.3 points per game this season.

Keys to the Game:

–          The Clippers are 16th in the league in rebounding, averaging 42 boards a game this season. Rookie, Blake Griffin leads the team with 9 boards per game. The team can’t seem to score the ball well, averaging only 91.4 points per game. Baron Davis and Randy Foye remain as game-time decisions for this game.

–          With Baron Davis out day-to-day with his injury, Eric Bledsoe has picked up the bulk of his minutes and guided the team to its first win of the season. The rookie from Kentucky scored 17 points and dished 8 dimes against the Thunder. In his previous game, he was able to put up 9 points, 5 boards and nab four steals against the Spurs.

–          The Nuggets have done well on defense so far in this early season. The team is 10th in the league, allowing 96.3 points per game this season. Chauncey Billups leads the team in steals with 1.3 per game.

Game Forecast:

The Nuggets will be tough to slow down when playing at home. Carmelo Anthony has been averaging 22.8 points and 9 rebounds per game this season. The Clippers aren’t the easy win they were in the previous season, but Denver should be able to hold them off in this game. The Clippers will also need Baron Davis to suit up for this one, or expect Chauncey Billups to bully-up the Eric Bledsoe.
