The Clippers (55-26) still don’t know who they will play in the first round of the upcoming playoffs, but they have clinched homecourt advantage for that first round, thanks to their 110-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night at Staples Center.
Jamal Crawford had a poor shooting night – he was 1 of 6 for three points – but his 3-point play down the stretch helped stave off a Denver team with nothing to lose; the Nuggets are 30-51.
Crawford was stoked to hear his team will start the playoffs at Staples Center.
“That is huge,” Crawford said. “Like I talked about before the game, the fans have been there through good and bad times. I think they can help push us to the next level, so that is good for us.”
