The Clippers have now won 11 straight games and last night, were able to trounce the lowly Cavaliers by 102-80 at home. On his 25th birthday, Blake Griffin led the way with 21 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, while Chris Paul added 16 points and 15 assists but the biggest positive from the win was the Clippers’ ability to hold the Cavs to less than 35 percent shooting. On offense, the Clippers did a great job of moving the ball while still protecting it, making 32 assists on 42 made shots while committing just five turnovers.

Defensively, the Nuggets just didn’t have the answer for Al Jefferson or Kemba Walker who combined for 50 points and it only got worse when the Bobcats went to their bench because Gary Neal made Read More

Denver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets

The Nets have lost three of their last five and are coming off their biggest loss of the season, a 124-80 beatdown at the hands of the Trailblazers. In a completely listless performance, the Nets came out with no energy and simply got blown off the court, falling behind by 58-34 heading into halftime before allowing another 42 points in the fourth quarter. Perhaps the Nets are fatigued because that was their fifth game in their seven-game road trip, but they did get a couple nights of rest after their win against the Lakers on Sunday so they can’t use that excuse. Meanwhile, the Nuggets have lost eight of their last nine games and are also Read More
