Clippers – Nuggets Game Info
Los Angeles Clippers (49-23) vs. Denver Nuggets (46-27)
Date: Sunday, Sept. 13, 2020
Time: 1 p.m. ET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex – Kissimmee, FL
The Nuggets were down by 16 points in the second half and trailed by 7 points to start the fourth quarter. However, they found their offense just in time, pouring in 38 fourth quarter points. They used Michael Porter Jr. in the lineup to close the game, due to his offensive ability, and he came away a +13 plus/minus, which was tied with Nikola Jokic for the best on the team. He hit one 3-pointer in the fourth quarter, while Jokic hit two and Jamal Murray nailed three. They will need to keep their hot shooting today in order to win, which is a rather large ask.
This Clippers team, for whatever reason, seems prone to blowing big leads. One of the reasons could be Montrezl Harrell, who continues to be a liability late in games. He should the same in Game 5, when his six minutes to start the fourth quarter resulted in a -13. This has become a pattern.
Overall, the Clippers outplayed the Nuggets in every facet of the game except for shooting percentage. Thanks to a ridiculously hot fourth quarter, Denver shot six percentage points better than Los Angeles overall for the game, which was the difference. Otherwise, the Clippers had more offensive rebounds, more 3-pointers made and less turnovers. Typically, this is a recipe for success. That is why Denver needs another hot shooting day to have a chance to win.
