The Denver Nuggets must win tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers.

This is a possible playoff matchup, and the winner is debatable. The Clippers seem like the real deal, but the same goes for the Nuggets as they’ve had one of the best records since the All-Star break.

It’s a toss-up with these two teams because they play so similarly. They both like to push the ball, shoot the 3-pointers and throw lobs. In fact, I’m not even sure who the real “Lob City” is — Denver throws just as many alley-oops and may even have better dunkers.

Look for Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford to come out and score tonight. They are the best offensive players on the Clippers, and Paul will have to be a force to pull out a win tonight. I think that the Nuggets will challenge Blake Griffin in the inside, questioning his defensive ability. Andre Igudola will have a big game tonight. He has been playing amazingly as of late, and run-and-gun is definitely his type of game.

The Nuggets have to win tonight to show the Clippers that what they are doing is real. Coming off of a week where none of there opponents were Clippers’ caliber, they have to show Los Angeles what could happen if they meet in the playoffs.

Denver also has to get home court advantage, which they would definitely benefit from, are is only a game behind the Memphis Grizzlies.

Grizzlies' Chalmers Takes Cheap Shot At Nurkic

Since arriving in the NBA as a rookie out of Kansas, Mario Chalmers has had a tough road to climb as he's never really gotten a true opportunity to be the top guy. Now with Memphis, he's had an opportunity to start a few games with Mike Conley battling a back injury, but he shows in this video that he's still too immature to take advantage.
