Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Clippers Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NBA Playoffs Game on Friday September 11th, 2020.

 

Jamal Murray Denver Nuggets
18.5 PTS, 4 REB, 4.8 AST

Murray scored 18 points (6-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding seven assists, four rebounds and a steal in 44 minutes during Wednesday's Game 4 loss against the Clippers.

Murray posted three straight games with at least 40 points in the first-round series against the Jazz, but he's since crashed down to earth, having failed to reach the 20-point mark in four of the last five games.

He's averaging 17.8 points per game (on 38.2 percent shooting from the field) against the Clippers after putting up 31.6 points per game in the first round.

Kawhi Leonard Los Angeles Clippers
27.1 PTS, 7.1 REB, 4.9 AST

Leonard posted 30 points (10-22 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 11 rebounds, nine assists, four steals and two blocks in 39 minutes during Wednesday's Game 4 win over the Nuggets.

Leonard stuffing the stat sheet is nothing new; he's recorded double-doubles with at least seven assists in four of his last five games.

The star forward always plays at an extremely high level in the playoffs, but he's stepped it up a notch for the Western Conference semis, posting averages of 23.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.5 blocks in four games against the Nuggets.

 

 

Denver Nuggets: facts and current form

Professor Malone's cadre fought to the end in Game 3 but ended it losing 107-113. Now the goal of the roster is to try to even the tie again, since a 3-1 could be fatal for their aspirations to qualify for the final of the Western Conference.

Nikola Jokic was once again the main figure of the franchise after converting 32 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists in 38 minutes of play. Apparently, the Serbian pivot is being unstoppable for the Angelenos due to his power and especially because of his great IQ when moving on the court.

Of course, Jamal Murray had low numbers again, registering only 14 points in total. Special mention for the young Michael Porter Jr, who scored 18 points and captured 10 rebounds in the 23 minutes that he played.

The logic indicates that the Nuggets specify between 24 to 27 points per quarter and between 100 to 110 throughout the 48 minutes of play.

Los Angeles Clippers: facts and current form

The Los Angeles team comes calmer to this match after getting 2-1 in the series. And he did it thanks to an exceptional Paul George, who scored 32 points in more than 40 minutes of play.

Kawhi Leonard had some ups and downs in his actions, but improved his actions in the final stretch of the match. Of course, he captured 14 rebounds, totally fajiendo in this fight with the pivot Jokic.

Now the goal of those led by Doc Rivers is to extend the advantage they have in the tie and liquidate it as soon as possible. And we say this because they could have more rest days if the Lakers or the Rockets reach a hypothetical final of the Conference with 7 games in tow.

Most likely, the Clippers will get between 25-28 units per period and between 105-115 total.
