5* TNT PRIME TIME GAME OF THE WEEK
Denver vs. LA Clippers,
02/02/2012 22:30 EDT,
Score: 112 - 91
Point Spread: +1/-105 Denver
My money is on the Denver Nuggets to go into Los Angeles and hand the Clippers a loss tonight. The Nuggets come in having lost two straight, including a 105-109 loss at home to these same Clippers on Sunday. Denver will be extremely motivated to return the favor, especially with the game being played on TNT.
The Nuggets were without starting point guard Ty Lawson in the game against the Clippers this past weekend, but he returned to action Tuesday against the Grizzlies and is expected to play tonight.
I believe Lawson will have a huge impact on this game. The Nuggets really like to run with Lawson on the floor, and they should be able to run all over the Clippers. Los Angeles just played a grueling game last night in Utah, and this will be their fourth game in five nights.
Denver is an incredible 17-4 ATS in their last 21 games as a road underdog, 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a S.U. loss, and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. BET THE NUGGETS!
