Nuggets-Clippers Preview

(AP) -- The Los Angeles Clippers are proud of their recent defensive success, but their standing as one of the best offensive teams in the NBA could be key against the defensively challenged Denver Nuggets.

The Clippers could be in for another terrific performance as they try to beat the sputtering Nuggets for the eighth time in nine tries at home Monday night.

Los Angeles (30-14) is yielding an average of 97.8 points during a 10-3 stretch after giving up 104.5 while losing six of the previous 10. Staunch defensive play was vital Sunday, when the Clippers used a 15-0 fourth-quarter run to pull away in a 120-100 win at Phoenix to extend their winning streak to four games.
