Nikola Jokic (C) vs Paul George (F)

Reigning back-to-back league MVP Nikola Jokic has been putting up video game numbers once again for the Nuggets this season. He’s averaging 29 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 9.8 assists while posting an incredible 34.1 PER. Jokic exploits mismatches with his rare combination of size, court vision, and shooting touch. He should have the upper hand against a Clippers frontcourt lacking rim protection.

Paul George missed the first month recovering from injuries but has regained his All-Star form. PG13 is scoring 23.5 points to go along with 5.8 boards and 4.3 assists per contest. An elite perimeter defender, George will likely draw the Jokic assignment to try slowing down Denver’s unstoppable center. His two-way impact gives the Clippers a fighting chance, but Jokic should still get his numbers.

This marquee matchup pits the league’s most dominant pivot against one of its top wing defenders. While George has the tools to make Jokic work, the Serbian’s size and skill set are extremely difficult counters. MVP frontrunner Jokic should exploit LA’s lack of interior deterrence to will Denver to another win.

Denver Nuggets Offensive Firepower

The Nuggets boast the NBA’s 5th ranked offense, putting up 114.5 points per game. Denver shoots efficiently, cashing 49.5% of their field goal attempts, including 36.3% from three. The team also does a great job moving the ball, evidenced by their 3rd ranked 30.1 assists per contest.

Jokic is the engine but Denver features a bevy of scoring threats like Aaron Gordon, Jamal Murray, and Michael Porter Jr. This multitude of weapons prevents defenses from focusing solely on Jokic. Denver should have little trouble lighting up the scoreboard against a middling Clippers defense.

LA Clippers Defensive Issues

While the Clippers can score with the best of teams behind George and Leonard, defense has been their Achilles heel recently. On that end, LA ranks a below-average 20th allowing 114 points per game. They also struggle to clean the glass, permitting over 44 boards to opponents per outing.

Making matters worse, starting center Ivica Zubac’s status is uncertain due to a calf strain that’s kept him out four straight contests. His absence leaves the Clippers extremely vulnerable against the size of Jokic and Gordon. Expect the Nuggets to impose their will in the paint on their way to a comfortable win.
