More: Preview of Clippers vs. Denver

The Los Angeles Clippers look to continue their stellar play against the upper echelon of the Western Conference, returning home Thursday night to host the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center. The Clippers have won four straight games, including a 109-105 victory Sunday night in Denver.

With Chris Paul leading the way, the Clippers (13-6) have vanquished old demons this week, as their win Sunday snapped a nine-game skid in Denver and their victory Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz snapped a 16-game losing streak in Salt Lake City. But now the Clippers are at Staples Center, where they have excelled even dating back to last season.

The Clippers are 10-2 at home this season, including wins over the 17-4 Oklahoma City Thunder, the 16-6 Miami Heat, and the defending champion Dallas Mavericks. Dating back to last year, the Clippers are 26-7 in their last 33 games at home.

The winner of Thursday's game will hold the second-best record in the Western Conference behind Oklahoma City. Denver (14-7) is 7-4 away from home this season, the fourth best road record in the NBA.

Game Notes

Paul is averaging 28.3 points and 10.7 assists in his last three games, shooting 61.0% from the field with a true shooting percentage of 68.9% during that span. Blake Griffin had 31 points and 14 rebounds Wednesday night at Utah, his 12th double-double of the season in 19 games. Griffin had 17 points and 13 boards in Denver on Sunday.

Thursday night's 7:30 p.m. PST game will be televised exclusively by TNT. For more news and notes regarding Clippers basketball, be sure to read Clips Nation.
