Clippers Caught Up In Distraction
If you are a fan of the NBA or the LA Clippers you have obviously heard about the drama surrounding this team.

This could be nothing, but it will steal all of the headlines in this game and will be a giant distraction for the Clippers.

Denver Nuggets vs LA Clippers Predictions
The Nuggets proved that they match up well against the Clippers by winning the last game that they played. The distraction will be a big problem for a Clippers team that easily loses their focuses. Doc Rivers is barely hanging on to the psyche of this team. The Clippers will be playing their fifth game in eight days and are a bit shorthanded with the injuries that they have. This game will be close, but the play is the Denver Nuggets.
