5. Nuggets v. Clippers
If the Nuggets asked Santa for a win against the Clippers on Christmas, we hope they were more nice than naughty. Sitting close to the top spot in the Western Conference, this year’s better LA squad has made major improvements to their game. With stifling defense and a strong bench contribution from Jamal Crawford, Blake Griffin and his boys could have quite the merry Christmas against the Nuggets. One thing is for certain though: Denver will go just as hard in the paint.
