With a win, the Los Angeles Clippers will make their first-ever conference finals. They lost a 19 point lead in the third quarter in Game 6. As a team, the Clippers are putting up 116.1 points and on the defensive end, there are giving up 110.3 points. The offense is led by Kawhi Leonard with 29.4 points and 9.6 rebounds a game. Paul George ads 21.1 points and 3.9 assists. The Clippers do not have a good record in closeout games and will need a better effort in this one to survive.
With a win, the Denver Nuggets will move on to their first conference finals since the 2008-09 season. As a team, the Nuggets are putting up 107 points and on the defensive end, they are giving up 109.8 points. The offense is led by Jamal Murray with 26.1 points and 6.5 assists a game. Nikola Jokic adds 26.1 points and 9.9 rebounds. It is the second series they have come back from being down 3-1 to force a game seven. They have been down 16 and 19 in the last two games but found a way to win.
The Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Conference Semifinals games. The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets have come back from being down in double digits in the last two games. They really can't rely on that in Game seven so I expect them to come out strong on both ends of the court. I am not sure what is wrong with the Clippers when it comes to playing with a big lead. I am looking for another close game and am taking the points with the Nuggets.
Play on Denver. This is an 8* play.
