The Clippers' franchise-record winning streak of 17 games has ended with a 92-78 loss to the Nuggets in Denver on Tuesday night.
The Nuggets scored 10 of the final 11 points of the third quarter to open a 16-point lead and cruised to a 92-78 victory at the Pepsi Center.
The Clippers shot only 38.5% from the field, including a woeful five of 29 (17.2%) from three-point range. They were led by Blake Griffin and Eric Bledsoe with 12 points each while Chris Paul finished with 10 points and six assists.
Denver didn't shoot much better at 45.1% from the field and 30.4% from long range, but it was enough. The Nuggets had six players in double figures, led by Danilo Gallinari with 17 points.
