What a season the Denver Nuggets are having !! At 40-18, they find themselves at the second spot in Western Conference Standings and have been performing exceptionally all season long.
While Nikola Jokic has been stellar with his performances and completely elevated the team to a whole another level, players like Jamal Murray, Gary Harris have also stayed consistent for the most part of this season and they can really pose some tough questions to the Golden State Warriors if they meet in the playoffs.
They also have really good depth in their bench and it will be interesting to see how deep they go in the playoffs.
Denver Nuggets’ predicted starting line-up:
Paul Milsap (F), Nikola Jokic (C), Jamal Murray (G), Will Barton (G) and Malik Beasley (G)
Los Angeles Clippers:
The Los Angeles Clippers are fighting for a spot in the playoffs and at 33-27, they are currently at the eighth spot in Western Conference. However, in a stacked West, the table keeps changing after every single night and teams like the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers who are not far away from the Clippers will be aiming to make playoffs push.
It is incredible how the Clippers, who have two max contracts slots available are still fighting so hard to somehow sneak into the playoffs without losing their focus on the task at the head.
Los Angeles Clippers’ starting line-up:
Danilo Gallinari (F), Ivica Zubac (C), Patrick Beverley (G), Landry Shamet (G) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (G)
