Clippers @ Nuggets tips, picks and prop bets: Harden and Jokic to shine at Ball Arena

The Denver Nuggets (8-2) welcome the new-look Los Angeles Clippers (3-6) in the NBA’s in-season tournament on Tuesday night (0300 GMT Weds).

Clippers @ Nuggets game pick

The Nuggets top the Western Conference at 8-2 while the Clippers, still integrating James Harden, have posted a record of 3-6.

Tonight’s meeting at Ball Arena is part of the NBA in-season tournament with the result also counting towards the regular season standings.

Michael Malone’s team are looking to bounce back after a 107-104 loss on the road to the Rockets. That seems surprising, but given Jamal Murray’s absence, it isn’t.

Nikola Jokic was typically ridiculous with 36 points, 21 rebounds and 11 assists and he’ll need to dominate again on Tuesday.

It’s worth noting the Nuggets are a solid 9-3ATS (against the spread) on the back of a loss.

The Clippers have lost their last five games and were beaten 105-101 by the lowly Grizzlies last time out.

The quartet of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Russell Westbrook and James Harden is fearsome on paper, but it’s yet to gel.

While Tyronn Lue will want to win games, the focus remains on building that chemistry. LA are 0-5ATS in road games and 8-18ATS in their last 26 against a team winning 60% plus.

Bet: Denver Nuggets -5

Clippers @ Nuggets prop bets

The Clippers have shown signs of their defensive quality, but even if they limit Denver, they probably won’t stop Jokic from scoring 30+.

Prop: Nikola Jokic over 31.5 points

James Harden made just four of 12 shots from the field, one of seven from three-point range and dished three assists. That isn’t good, but he’ll bounce back tonight.

Prop: James Harden over 5.5 assists
