The Clippers are fresh off a win in Memphis while the Nuggets return home after defeating the Mavericks in Dallas. Let’s discuss which of these teams gets the cover on Sunday.

However, 10 consecutive fourth-quarter points by Danilo Gallinari doused the Memphis rally and notched a 112-106 win for the Clips and cashed as three-point road pups for all of those who included LA in their <a href="" target="_blank" title="More NBA Picks">NBA picks.</a> Gallinari had 23 points on the night, despite going 1-of-7 from beyond the arc, but it was Montrezl Harrell’s 30 points off the bench that supplied the ammunition for the Clippers destruction of the Grizzlies. Harrell and his bench mate Lou Williams have become formidable role players for Los Angles, and as the Grizzlies were keying on Williams, Harrell went to work exploiting Memphis’s openings. Nevertheless, Williams still bucketed 18 points of his own in the victory.</p><p>The Nuggets put together their third straight win with a 114-104 victory over the Mavericks on Friday night. Dallas was without the services of their burgeoning superstar Luka Doncic, who was sidelined with an ankle injury, but hung tough in the first-half before succumbing to a relentless Denver attack in the second that saw the Nuggets outrebound the Mavs 63-42. Center Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets with a relatively modest 19 points but Denver had seven players score in double-digits while three, including Jokic, had 10 or more rebounds.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"pt\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;12 of his 23 in the fourth quarter. &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;@gallinari8888&lt;/a&gt; came up big when it mattered most.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;📊 23 PTS / 8 REB / 3 STL &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— LA Clippers (@LAClippers) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;23 de fevereiro de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>The last time these teams met Tobias Harris was leading the way for the Clips as their top scorer. But a February 6<sup>th</sup> deal changed all that and now Harris is wearing a 76ers uniform while LA has plugged along, winning three of their last five without him. In that January 10<sup>th</sup> game the Nuggets cruised to a 121-100 victory and easily covered the six-point impost that the <a href="" target="_blank" title="Live NBA Odds Board">NBA odds </a>makers were hanging. However, the Clippers are also holding onto the eighth and final playoff spot in the West and are 5-5 ATS versus the Nuggets over their last 10 meetings.</p><p>Denver has cobbled together a three -game winning streak after dropping three straight but over those last six contests, the Nuggets have really only looked sharp in their 103-87 home win over the lackluster Miami Heat. Other than that, the Nuggets have not broken quickly from the gate and the Clippers are the kind of team that can hang around and get the cover if you don’t dispatch them early. Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams have seen their roles off the bench increase to the point where they resemble starters more than backups. The Clippers are actually ranked nine spots higher (7<sup>th</sup> vs 16<sup>th</sup>) than the Nuggets in point production and should be able to at least get the cover in what should be a rather generous head start from the oddsmakers. Grab the points with the Clips.</p>
