The Clippers meet the Nuggets for the first time since wasting a 3-1 lead in their playoff series last season

Revenge will be the theme for the Los Angeles Clippers on Christmas Day as they try to redeem themselves against the Denver Nuggets on Friday, December 25 (Saturday, December 26, Manila time).

The Clippers were favorites to reach the Western Conference finals last season, but fell prey to the Nuggets in the conference semifinals in 7 games.

Up 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, the Clippers crumbled in the next 3 games as the Nuggets advanced to meet eventual NBA champions Los Angeles Lakers in the conference finals.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are expected to show the way for the Clippers, who are fresh from a season-opening win over the Lakers.

The Nuggets, to be led by Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray, eye their first win after falling short to the Sacramento Kings in their season debut.

Game time is 11:30 am.
