The Denver Nuggets and LA Clippers square off in Las Vegas Summer League action on Wednesday. The Nuggets have some momentum on their side following an 84-76 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, thanks to a team-high 19 points from 2022 first-round pick Peyton Watson.

Meanwhile, the Clippers are hoping to rebound after losing, 83-72, to the Los Angeles Lakers less than 24 hours ago. The Clippers' offense was nowhere to be found in the second half of the contest as they scored only 26 total points in the final two frames.

Nuggets vs Clippers Prediction & Pick

The key for the Clippers to win tonight's game will be to get more offense out of its lineup. While Jay Scrubb and Brandon Boston had 15 points apiece in the loss to the Lakers, no other Clippers players had more than nine. A similar performance won't cut it against the Nuggets, who've done a great job at playing defense this tournament.

If the Nuggets shoot their three-pointers better than they did against the Cavaliers (28.1%), I do not doubt that they can take the Clippers out of this game early on. Keeping that in mind, I'm predicting that Denver will win while the total hits under 168.5 points in the process.
