Clippers Offense: This just isn't a fair matchup. The Clippers are the better, more complete team. They've had a nice offensive rhythm throughout the series while everything has been a struggle for the Nuggets.

The Clippers really share the ball; they had 26 assists in Game 4. They have averaged 24.3 assists in their three wins and only 14 in their one loss.
