Nuggets vs. Clippers Game Info

Denver Nuggets (42-21, 18-11 Away) vs. Los Angeles Clippers (43-21, 24-8 Home)
Date: Saturday, May 1, 2021
Time: 10 p.m. EST
Venue: STAPLES Center — Los Angeles, Calif.
Coverage: ESPN

Denver enters this game winning eight of its last nine games, including four straight. All four of these wins have come at home, but they are back on the road, facing another Western Conference contender. The Nuggets suffered a big loss, when Jamal Murray went down injured. Then, Will Barton, the versatile guard, has also missed the past several games. Somehow, the Nuggets have kept the ship afloat, and much of this success should be attributed to MVP candidate Nikola Jokic. He has averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 8.8 assists during April. Tonight, Awesemo projects Jokic to lead the team in all three categories. Another player to really step up has been Michael Porter Jr., who has actually led the Nuggets in scoring in four of the past five games. He is averaging 29.4 points over this stretch, and Awesemo projects Porter for around 21 points tonight.

The Clippers are entering this game off back-to-back losses. They need Kawhi Leonard back on the floor, and he is considered questionable to make his return tonight. In his absence, Paul George has had all of the pressure on him. As has been the case for George in his career, this pressure has brought mixed results. He is averaging 27.5 points on 48.1% shooting during April, but he also has shot under 40% in two of his past three games and turned the ball over five-plus times in two of the last three as well. With Awesemo currently projecting Leonard to play, George is projected for 24 points, leading the team.

The away team has won both matchups this season. Will Denver keep the pattern going?
