Will the streak finally end? Not tonight as the Clippers (25-6 SU, 20-11 ATS, 17-14 O/U just wrapped up going 16-0 in December and are going for their 18th straight. It will be a tough task, against a Denver team that is 9-1 SU at home. But the Clippers took this team down on Dec. 25, 112-100, giving 6.5. In their last road trip to Denver, they won on April 18, 104-98, getting 3. Denver (17-15 SU, 19-13 ATS, 17-15 O/U) has been up-and-down this season, coming off a 81-72 road loss to Memphis on Saturday. The Clippers are by no means a one-man team, even though Chris Paul is a superstar and Blake Griffin may become one. When they defeated Utah on Sunday, 107-96, giving 10, Caron Butler set a franchise mark by going 6-for-6 from 3-point range. They have too many weapons off the bench and are playing unselfish basketball. Denver still lacks the chemistry of the Clippers. That's why they'll continue to keep the streak alive.
