Notebook: Clippers 112, Nuggets 91


Dan Arritt, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Dec 22, 2013 2:29 AM - Updated Sun Dec 22, 2013 2:29 AM

THE FACT: The Clippers shot 13-for-33 from 3-point range, improving to 21-2 since the start of last season when making at least 11 from beyond the arc.

THE LEAD: Forced into the starting lineup by a rash of injuries and ineffectiveness, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford seems to be getting more comfortable by the game. Crawford matched his season high with six 3-pointers and scored 27 points Saturday night as Los Angeles stormed away from the Denver Nuggets in the second half to win 112-91 at Staples Center. Crawford has started the last four games after coming off the bench in his first 100 with the Clippers. Since the start of the 2009-10 season, when he won the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award while with the Hawks, Crawford has started a total of 10 games.

QUOTABLE: "Coming off the bench, you have to have an immediate impact. Coach is looking for a sparkplug, and to bring energy, but when you're a starter you can kind of feel the game out."
--Jamal Crawford

THE STAT: Crawford has moved past Glen Rice, Eddie Jones and Tim Hardaway on the NBA's career 3-point list, and sits alone in 13th with 1,594 baskets from beyond the arc -- 46 shy of Kobe Bryant of the Lakers for No. 12.

TURNING POINT: The Nuggets never led while falling behind by as many as 17 points in the second quarter. They made their final push to start the third by scoring nine of the first 11 points to cut the deficit to 58-52. But the Clippers got hot from 3-point range as Crawford and Jared Dudley combined to make five in a row in a 21-8 blitz to close the quarter, and Denver never made another legitimate push.

HOT: The Clippers seem to be clicking on all cylinders in their first season under coach Doc Rivers. They've won four in a row by an average margin of 18 points and are getting healthier, welcoming back reserve swingman Matt Barnes after he missed the previous 16 games with an eye injury. Clippers forward Blake Griffin had 24 points and 16 rebounds and shot 8-for-10 from the free-throw line to boost his December percentage to 74.7.

QUOTABLE: II: "I thought it was really important how we came out at the start because I think that helped us and helped our spirit."
--Doc Rivers

NOT: Denver was one of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the league at 34.3 percent last season -- the low point an 0-for-22 performance against Portland -- but the Nuggets had moved more toward the middle of the pack this season. Well, they seem to be falling back to earth. Denver shot 6-for-30 from beyond the arc against the Clippers, one night after a 4-for-17 performance in a loss to visiting Phoenix.

GOOD MOVE: The highlight of the night, and this just capped the first half, was when Matt Barnes deflected an inbounds pass under the Denver basket, sending the ball out toward the top of the key. Clippers reserve point guard Darren Collison was in position to race over and snare the ball on the short hop and then fling an off-balance sidearm heave towards the rim as the clock neared zero. The ball somehow found its way through the hoop for a 3-point basket, giving the Clippers a 56-43 halftime lead.

BAD MOVE: The Nugget were already thin up front with forward Danilo Gallinari out with a torn ACL and center JaVale McGee sidelined with a left tibia stress fracture. Now the Nuggets might have to move forward without forward Kenneth Faried for a while. He rolled his left ankle in the first quarter and was ruled out shortly afterward. Timofey Mozgov started the second half and finished with 15 points and nine rebounds.

NOTABLE: Barnes returned after undergoing three procedures to correct his right eye and he finished with a season-high 13 points off the bench. ..... ... Jordan finished with seven points and 12 rebounds, the 19th time this season he has grabbed at least a dozen rebounds, which is two behind Sunday's opponent, Kevin Love of the Timberwolves, for the NBA lead.

UP NEXT: For the Clippers, Sunday vs. Minnesota, Wednesday @ Golden State, Thursday @ Portland. For the Nuggets, Monday vs. Golden State, Friday @ New Orleans, Saturday @ Memphis.
