The Clippers can’t afford to lose games they should win, especially at home. But that’s what happened to them Wednesday night when they were defeated 87-81 by the Denver Nuggets (23-35) at Staples Center.
The Clippers (37-20) took a franchise-record 46 3-point shot attempts and made just 13 for 28.3 percent. Wes Johnson shot just 1 of 7 from beyond the arc. He was bummed, but philosophic.
“We just have to have a short-term memory and move on to the next game,” he said. “The thing about the NBA is that we have to redeem ourselves in the next game.”
