Reggie Jackson, DeAndre Jordan lead Nuggets past Clippers without Nikola Jokic

LOS ANGELES — On a night when Nikola Jokic, Aaron Gordon and Jamal Murray sat, the Denver Nuggets scored their most impressive win of the season to date.

Reggie Jackson scored 35 points, DeAndre Jordan had 21 points and 13 rebounds, and the Nuggets rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 113-104 on Monday night.

Former Clippers Jackson and Jordan combined for 20 points in the fourth, when the Nuggets trailed by 11 to start.

Jackson began and ended a 22-6 spurt with 3-pointers that put the Nuggets ahead 99-94. In between, he fed Jordan for two vicious dunks.
