Our Pick
With a fully healthy roster, these two teams would match up better than their records suggest. But the Pistons will be missing their best scorers and playmakers in this matchup. The Nuggets are down men too, but they’ve shown that their depth can make up for the difference.

There is nothing left for the Houston Rockets this season, as they’ve shut down almost all of their key contributors. The Clippers on the other hand are only getting healthier, also showing that they’re willing to compete regardless of their opponent’s standing.
