Nuggets-Clippers Preview By NOEY KUPCHAN Posted Dec 21 2013 2:03AM Playing alongside two of the NBA's top scorers, DeAndre Jordan may sometimes get overlooked. His efforts on the defensive end, though, are certainly of note. Jordan tries to continue his stellar play and help the Los Angeles Clippers match their longest win streak of the season Saturday night against the Denver Nuggets. While Blake Griffin (20.4 points per game) and Chris Paul (19.5 ppg) continue to garner most of the acclaim, Jordan has quietly emerged as one of the league's top interior defenders. The 6-foot-11 center is tied for second in the NBA with an average....

Good thing this game is at staples. Nuggets seem to always give us trouble at the Pepsi center

Has anyone watched the Nuggets this season? I don't really have a proper idea of what the team is like with all the changes.

They gave up a 21 point lead last night to the Suns who came back and won! Anyone hear the news on Brook Lopez! I'm glad David Stern turned down that KG and Paul Pierce part....

Yeah I followed that. Not sure what that is going to mean tonight, will they be demoralized or extra determined? As long as the Clips do their thing it shouldn't matter.

Really guys,it doesn't matter who we play,we generally play to their level. So I suspect no one will be leaving Staple early tonight.

even if injury wasn't an issue its always bad practice to trade a young player for one in his twilight and making a whopping salary. I was livid when the FO was in talks for that trade and I'm glad stern acted in our best interest to veto the trade

Interestingly, Friday was the first time Jackson's had the opportunity to practice since joining the team.

Yeah... I had my fingers crossed all summer over that Trade, didn't understand why we needed to trade for them when they're Highly likely to come in the offseason, KG for sure.

I want to see if Blake can Dominate this Game, Faried Gives him problems a bit because he's a good Defender and he plays hard

every possession. I'd also like to see if Collison can stay solid

Against Nate, also I'd like to see what lineups we use tonight for

the Bench with Barnes Back in the Fold.


David Stern gets my vote for General Manager of the Year.

Brian Shaw is against hacking players, so that's good.

This should be a good one tonight. Obviously, I'll be rooting for the Clips, but I am a huge Nate Robinson fan. He's been one of my favorite players since he was at UW. Best case scenario: Nate scores 25+, but Clippers still get the win. I'm excited for this game.

Nate is a freak of nature, a bit like EBled.

usually true, maybe we break the mould tonight since they had a late and demoralizing night yesterday courtesy of Bled and Co.

Would be great for us to blow them out and rest cp/blake for tomorrow.

Blake can't hesitate on those jump shots. It just makes it harder to make them.

He was so wide open I'm sure somewhere in his mind he thought, "Drive?"

But yeah, he needs to shoot without hesitation.

BG looks like he got scratched under his right eye.

CP + Collison vs Nate + Lawson. Smallest backcourt matchup ever? lol

Bulls made a big mistake letting Nate go...is that an understatement?

Hmmm...I'd prefer Blake to make some inside baskets. I know he CAN hit those jumpers, but...

Nah at this point they should tank.

Collison dribbled it a bit too long.
