Eric Bledsoe Leads Clippers Over Nuggets, 100-94; Eric Gordon Hurt Again

Eric Bledsoe scored 15 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, leading the Los Angeles Clippers to a 100-94 win over the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center. Bledsoe filled in capably for Eric Gordon, who in only his second game back aggravated his right wrist injury and was forced to leave the game after playing just 14 minutes. Bledsoe was one of five Clippers to score in double figures.

Gordon fell on his wrist on a drive to the hoop in the second quarter, and was forced to leave the game. Michael Smith on the postgame show on Prime Ticket reported that ex-rays were negative, but as of now Gordon's status is unknown. Bledsoe, who played a total of 24 minutes in the two games since Mo Williams joined the team, including just eight minutes on Wednesday when Gordon returned, picked up the slack tonight in his 23 minutes. Bledsoe scored 20 points on 7-for-11 shooting, including 2-of-5 from three-point range.

Blake Griffin was an assist shy of a triple-double, with 18 points, 12 boards, and nine assists. Williams had 17 points and five assists. Randy Foye also added 13 points for the Clippers, who had 46 points off the bench. Nene Hilario led Denver with 25 points and 14 rebounds. The Clippers head back out on the road for yet another trip, this one a five-gamer which begins Monday in Charlotte.

Clippers, Now At Full Strength, Host New-Look Nuggets At Staples Center

The now-full strength Los Angeles Clippers are looking for their second straight win tonight against the new-look Denver Nuggets at Staples Center. The Clippers got Eric Gordon back on Wednesday against the Rockets, and beat Houston 106-103. The Clippers are 17-13 in their last 30 games with Gordon in the lineup.

Gordon had 24 points in his return on Wednesday, right at his average of 24.1 points per game this season. New Clipper Mo Williams had 17 points and 11 assists in his second game with the team, in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.  The Clippers are 17-15 at home this season.

The Nuggets are 5-1 since trading Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks, with their only loss coming in overtime by a point on the road in Portland. Newcomer Danilo Gallinari fractured his big left toe in that loss to Portland, and has missed three game since, and will be out again tonight for Denver. The home team has won all three matchups between the two teams this season, with the Nuggets winning twice in Denver and the Clippers winning at Staples Center once, on January 5.
