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.
