Aaron Gordon has completely bought in this season.
– Career-high 60.5 FG%
– 62% of his shots are in the restricted area
– That’s in the 100 percentile among forwards
– Mid-range attempts are way down
– Has the 4th most dunks in the league

The LA Clippers have finished the first quarter of their regular season. They’re fortunate to be 11-9 given their poor point differential. But there is a blend of frustration and optimism expressed by the team at this point as well.

Something odd happened in 4th quarter of Nuggets-Clippers: Aaron Gordon became Nikola Jokic
He ran pick-and-roll with Jamal Murray. He initiated offense at the elbow. Denver scored 5-straight baskets.
This is the best version of Gordon that we’ve seen:

Without Kennard-Kawhi-PG, Ty Lue called the margin for error “very slim” before tipoff. The Clippers have set out to prove their coach right. Despite 53% shooting, probably John Wall’s best game and solid Mann/Morris nights, turnovers and free throws have cut away at that margin. – 12:40 AM

@LawMurrayTheNU
Just a matter of time. Nuggets go on 9-0 run to take a 99-82 lead. The 2nd chance and points off TO margins are too much to overcome, not to mention the porous free throw shooting for LA.

I like the way the Nuggets have opened the game. Good rhythm to them on offense and solid defense. A few missed bunnies away from a 10-point lead.
Marcus Morris on fire but we’ll see if he cools down. – 10:50 PM
Ryan Blackburn
@NBABlackburn
Honestly think Denver’s playing really well on both ends. Clippers have hit some tough shots, specifically Marcus Morris. Denver’s generating great offense almost every time down. – 10:50 PM

Nuggets went on a 10-0 run early, but Clippers answered right back with a 7-0 run. It’s a 17-12 Nuggets lead with 6:07 left in the opening quarter. – 10:50 PM

Gritty, tough win by OKC against the Bulls in overtime. SGA hit three go-ahead free throws, Lu Dort redeemed himself with the key stop on DeMar DeRozan and Josh Giddey made huge plays in OT attacking downhill. Progress from the OT loss against Denver two nights ago. – 10:43 PM

So… Terance Mann is getting the initial assignment on Nikola Jokic. – 10:42 PM

@ScottAgness
It was Pacers v KD in the 4th and the Pacers were +17, get the win 128-117.
Everyone played their part; Hield scored 26, Turner with 23 and Haliburton added 21-15a.
They handled their business at home — won 8 of 10 during homestand.
Up next: Sun. at LAC to begin 7-game roadie. – 10:30 PM

No idea if MPJ or Ish are gonna play tonight, but given that Joker is probable I assume he’s playing. I’m sure Malone said this at his presser a few minutes ago.

Michael Malone takes nothing from Nuggets-Clippers preseason game played in Ontario in October despite both teams playing full squads for most part (no Jamal, no Kawhi last month but that was it).
Malone also did not sound happy about the condition of the floor that night either – 9:05 PM
Andrew Greif
@AndrewGreif
Re: Kawhi, PG and Kennard, Ty Lue said late in his pregame talk with reporters that he has a good feeling for how the injured Clippers are progressing. He said he hasn’t tried to reorient the offense like he did last season because he didn’t think the absences would be long term. – 9:03 PM

@SeanGrandePBP
The Celtics entered the game tonight 17th in the NBA in defense.
But 29th in the 2nd quarter (only Denver has been worse).
In the 2nd quarter tonight, the Kings have gone 12-18 from the floor, scored 27 points in less than 8 minutes and the Celtics lead, once 16, is now 53-49. – 8:58 PM

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will also remain out on Sunday vs Indiana in addition to tonight per Ty Lue. – 8:57 PM

Like I said yesterday, I’m not necessarily expecting them to play until next Saturday at earliest. – 8:57 PM

I need a good night out of Denver’s defense. Clippers have the 28th ranked offense and are without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Nuggets have the 27th ranked defense — the only teams worse are the Rockets, Pistons, Spurs. This defensive turnaround has to start soon. – 7:42 PM

Key number to know for tonight’s Nuggets-Clippers game:
In 300+ minutes, the Clippers have a -10 Net Rating in the minutes when both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are off the floor. They score just 100 points per 100 possessions. Horrible offense.
Both are out tonight. – 6:36 PM
