Summary:

Nuggets cover the spread in almost 60 so we getting a strong value with them. Denver continued to show its resilience in Game 2, posting a 110-101 victory to even the series after losing the opener by 23 points. The Nuggets held Clippers star Kawhi Leonard to 13 points on Saturday, his lowest total since an 11-point effort against Portland on Dec. 3. Look for Denver's defense to come up with another strong performance.

Details:

Denver were poor in game 1 but were much better in game 2, Clippers were good in game 1 but poor in game 2, i expect both teams to find there range in game 3 and we will see a good scoring points in this one.

After losing Game 1, 120-97, the Denver Nuggets bounced back with a 110-101 win as a nine-point underdog on Saturday to even the series at 1-1. The Nuggets wasted no time jumping out to a 44-25 lead in the first quarter and held on the rest of the way. The Nuggets shot 45.1% (41-91) from the field and 37.5% (15 of 40) from three in the victory. The Clippers, who led the NBA in field-goal percentage for the playoffs, struggled offensively. Los Angles made 40.9% (36-86) of their shots and only 28.1% (9 of 32) from three-point range.The Los Angeles Clippers are the No. 2 seed the Western Conference playoffs after going 49-23 in the regular-season. Denver posted a 46-27 record and is the third seed in the Western Conference play off.

We've seen two games in this series so far that were extreme opposites. Whether or not Nikola Jokic plays means a lot, as he is Denver's most consistent and overall best player.
The Clippers will drive you crazy. I am concerned about a possible lackluster performance if Jokic is out, similar to their Game 4 first-round loss to Dallas when they lost 135-133 despite Kristaps-Porzingis not playing. But overall, when the Clippers have flipped the switch on this postseason, they have been excellent, with all five of their playoff wins coming by eight points or more.Jokic's status is a huge deal. The Clippers have shown that they can handle the Nuggets and cover the spread with Jokic playing based on Game 1, but Denver has not yet proven themselves without him. I have to take Los Angeles to a winner but.... I think Denver cover the spread on plus 9,5 points.
Prediction. Denver cover the spread on plus 9,5 points.
