Default Who will go deeper in the playoffs? Nuggets or Clippers?

I'm sure most of you will say the Clippers because Denver doesn't have a player of CP3's caliber, but I think Denver will be more dangerous if they get home court for the playoffs. Denver are at the 5 seed right now, but they're only a half game behind Memphis for the 3 seed. This team is gonna be really dangerous if they get home court advantage (they have a 30-3 home record).

Definitely a contender in the west imo.

The Nuggets are a great running team, but they'll struggle in the playoffs more than the Clippers because the Clippers have that guy to go to in the clutch.

The Nuggets need a consistent outside shooter to break defenses when their running offense isn't scoring buckets by the dozens. In the playoffs, there are more defensively stout teams like Memphis or OKC or the Spurs, and they won't turn the ball over much to feed into the Nuggets' deadly fast break.

The Clippers OTOH can run and score in the half-court, thanks to Chris Paul (and to a lesser extent, Chauncey Billups). They can give OKC problems, particularly because Griffin and DeAndre Jordan can overpower the OKC bigs. But if they face the Spurs early? Spurs will shred the Clippers' defense with great offensive sets like last year.

Bump this thread when the seedings are final. How deep each team goes will depend on where they finish in the standings.

The 3,4, and 5 seeds are far from being decided.

I think the Clippers will go deeper. Nuggets are a dangerous team but I don't see them going very far. Denver vs. Memphis would be great. Hope that happens.
