LAst Night's Action: Clippers Shoot Nuggets
LA Clippers defeat Denver Nuggets 106-93. The most entertaining basketball team in Los Angeles did it again. They held the Denver Nuggets who averaged 106.7 points per game to only 93 points. Particularly helpful was DeAndre Jordan's six blocked shots.
But Jordan also got it done on the glass with 20 rebounds - only the second time in his career he reached that mark - to go along with his 14 points. Blake Griffin also had a double-double with 22 points and 18 rebounds. The play that really got a rise out of the crowd was when Griffin in a change of pace threw the alley to Jordan's oop in the fourth quarter.
Eric Gordon led the Clippers scoring with 28 points while Baron Davis chipped in with 16 points and eight rebounds.
For the Denver Nuggets on a four-game winning streak, Carmelo Anthony scored 31 while Chauncey Billups had 25 points. Other than that there wasn't a whole lot of anything. They didn't feel like rebounding going -14 in the game. And while they knocked down eight threes, the Clippers two-upped them on that line.
