Not drafting MPJ continues to haunt me.

He was always a boom or bust pick and now we reap what our poor drafting (other than SEGA) will sow. Not enough young talent off the bench, on cheap rookie deals, that leads to desperation overpay moves to Morris, Kennard, and Rondo.

The irony is that Jerome was considered the safe bet--a lower but solid ceiling while our doctors warned that MPJ might never play in the NBA at all.

Jerome only just turned 24, a few months younger than Mann and may not be a complete bust yet. Still, its hard to imagine him as a legit NBA starter. No guts, no glory.

He is averaging 9.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in his four starts this season.

This game may be the breaking point.

At the same time, a win will re-establish the momentum we had from the winning streak.

An undeniably enormously important game.

Frankly, I'm surprised the Nugs are only a slight favorite.

    Money line: Nuggets -125 (bet $125 to win $100) |
    Clippers +105 (bet $100 to win $105)

    ATS: Nuggets -1.5 (-115) | Clippers +1.5 (-105)
    Over/Under: 218.5 (O: -115 | U: -105)


    Nuggets

    G Monte Morris (quad) out


    Clippers

    G Patrick Beverley (knee) out
    F Paul George (foot) out
    F Serge Ibaka (back) out
    F Marcus Morris (calf) questionable
    G Rajon Rondo (abductor) out

Still doubt he plays but George has been upgraded to questionable.

That was a wild assessment for them to make imo. I guess they saw him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. We've got the crappiest doctors and medical staff in the league hands down. Just look at how many players are actually suiting up for the games these days? :nonono:

Here's hoping that Morris suits up as we'll need some scoring

Morris will play and George is a game time decision. He’ll go through his pregame routine before deciding.

The other half is that somebody in the FO thought Robinson could play. Once again we get a SG who can't S.
