Final rotations for the Nuggets as they beat the Clippers 114-104.
-No Kawhi/PG and the Clips struggled accordingly to score
-AG: 29 points on 12/16 FG, just a monster in the paint
-Joker: 19-13-6, did not attempt a shot in the second half. Didn’t have to.
-Murray: 21-6-9 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Moses Brown missed two more free throws… but got his rebound and finished a lefty bank hook that got him dap from PG and Kawhi.
Take the highlights you can get at this point.
Michael Malone takes a timeout to empty his bench with 5:12 left to play. Nuggets up 103-88. – 12:48 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
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
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
OKC has a history of scorers they could give the ball to in tight games to go get a game-winning bucket:
Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Paul George, Chris Paul.
And now Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. – 11:13 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
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
Janis Carr @janiscarr
Ty Lue says PG, Kawhi and Luke are all out tonight and Sunday. – 9:02 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Luke Kennard, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George already ruled out for Sunday.
Like I said yesterday, I’m not necessarily expecting them to play until next Saturday at earliest. – 8:57 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
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
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
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
Austin Burton @Amaar_206
Clippers fans reading another Kawhi and/or PG13 injury update AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
I’m blaming my injury report tardiness on the tryptophan. But yeah, Kawhi, Paul George and Luke Kennard have all been ruled out for Clippers-Nuggets tomorrow. – 11:07 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Kawhi and PG are out for Friday’s game; Ty Lue says no timetable for either…9:11 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers injury report for Black Friday is unchanged from yesterday.
Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Luke Kennard, and the Ontario trio are out vs Nuggets.
Wouldn’t be surprised if the injured Clippers are done until December. – 7:53 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Patrick Beverley here talking about Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: “He a killer, ain’t he?” “He just locked in on basketball, and we held him to that.” “He was mad about [the trade] saying you could’ve had me and Paul George. That’s a balls-y thing to say.” AM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Ty Lue says there’s currently no timetable for injured Kawhi and Paul George…12:23 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers are trailing 32-29 in San Francisco, their 5 turnovers keeping them from possibly having a lead despite playing without Kennard, Kawhi and PG. – 10:39 PM
Malika Andrews @malika_andrews
Reporting on Paul George and Kawhi Leonard’s injuries. Both players had treatment in Los Angeles today. Leonard will be re-evaluated in the coming days, putting his availability for Friday’s game in question. More from our @NBA on ESPN broadcast: PM

CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
No Kawhi Leonard or Paul George tonight for the Clippers. Traditional starters for Golden State. PM

Law Murray: Asked Tyronn Lue today about what happens with the team when Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are recovering instead of in their place of leading by example. Lue praised the other vets, and also said Leonard and George having a voice means a lot to the team even though they’re hurt -via Twitter @LawMurrayTheNU / November 25, 2022
