Clippers vs. Nuggets game preview: Western Conference foes square off on TNT

Los Angeles and Denver meet for their final preseason game on Thursday night.


The Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets will meet on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center. The Clippers will end their preseason slate with the game, while Denver has one left to play. The game should allow both squads to get a few last-minute preparations in before the regular season begins next week.

The Clippers are playing back-to-back games this evening after taking on the Lakers on Wednesday night. The projected starters are Chris Paul, Willie Green, Caron Butler, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, although it is unclear how much head coach Vinny Del Negro will play his regulars.

The Nuggets are 3-2 in the preseason, although they've lost their last two games. Look for Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, Kosta Koufos, JaVale McGee, Ty Lawson and Andre Iguodala to all see plenty of minutes as the team continues gelling together after multiple moves the past few years.

Tipoff from Denver is set for 7 p.m. PT. It will be televised live on TNT.
