Clippers vs. Nuggets: Game time, TV schedule and more

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers go for 18 in a row Tuesday night.

The Denver Nuggets will try their hand at beating the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night, a feat which no team has accomplished since Nov. 26.

The Clippers' win streak sits at 17 heading into Tuesday's game in Denver, including a 112-100 home win over the Nuggets on Christmas Day. It's the NBA's longest streak this season. A win would give Los Angeles the longest winning streak in the NBA since the Boston Celtics won 19 in a row in the 2008-09 season.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets are 9-1 at home this season, suffering their only Pepsi Center loss on Nov. 15 to the Miami Heat, 98-93.

Tuesday's game is the first in a long stretch the Nuggets will play at home. Nine of the team's next 11 games are at the Pepsi Center, broken up only by a game Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers and a Jan. 16 visit to play the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Clippers did not practice Monday to help heal their long list of injuries, according to the Los Angeles Times. Lamar Odom has a sprained left ankle and a strained ligament in his right foot, and DeAndre Jordan is dealing with sore ribs.

From the Los Angeles Times:

"We don't have enough bodies to do anything," (Clippers coach Vinny) Del Negro said. "So [Monday] is kind of what we call a 'corrective and maintenance' day. Guys get their treatment and get up some shots. We've got a really difficult week coming up without a lot of bodies."

Tipoff is at 7 p.m. MT on NBA TV.
