    Total Sweep. 4 - 0 Clippers.
    Nuggets lack the legs from their series vs Utah.

    Thinking of putting down some money on both 4-0 and 4-1 Clippers.

    Jokic I would just play straight up 1 on 1 with zubac or harrell, don't double because his passing. Defend Murray with Beverly, George, Kawhi, Morris. Let the rest of the team beat you.

    On offense pick on Murray or Porter Jr and put Jokic in pick and rolls.

    Should be clippers 4-1

    Jokic needs to bully the clips. The nuggets need to turn this series into a low scoring grind out series. Make Kawhi work for everything, beat him up if you have to. It might take a few games but it will eventually start to wear on him. Jokic needs to play amazingly for them to even stand a chance. This is his chance for people to recognize him as a legit star. If he keeps getting knocked out, people (who don't know better) will keep calling him a fraud despite being the best Big Man in the game.

    Between, Harris,Craig, Grant & Millsap, the Nuggets have a pretty tough defense that's going to make Kawhi & PG sweat at least a little bit

    Don't sleep on the Nuggets that's all I'm saying, they have the personal to pull off the upset

    If Jamal Murray keeps scoring crazy numbers, and Jokic controls the paint, and the Nuggets slow down Leonard in the clutch, they can steal the series. They absolutely must show better defensive intensity than they have up to this point.

    However, because the Nuggets have no counter to Leonard, who scores and rebounds and passes and defends at elite levels and lacks discernible weaknesses, the Clippers will win. He led the Clippers in scoring (32.8 ppg) and rebounding (10.2) and assists (5.2) and steals (2.3) while hitting 53.8% from the field in the first round. Despite being off from three (29.4%) the Clippers collectively shot 40.4% from outside - thanks to the enormous defensive attention Leonard attracts.

    Since this will be a very short turnaround for the Nuggets, who just finished a 7 game comeback victory over the stubborn Jazz, they'll be hard pressed to steal Game 1.

    A potential wildcard is the Clippers' hot headed tendencies (Beverly, Harrell, Morris) and that could factor in a close game with technicals or flagrant fouls.

    But this spells a short series, as long the Clippers rotate their superior defensive players on Murray, and force Jokic on islands all game long.
