DENVER -- Teams often complain about playing in the high altitude in Denver, which is one mile -- or 5,280 feet -- above sea level.

The Clippers will see how they will do playing at this high altitude when they face the Denver Nuggets on Monday night at the Pepsi Center.

Of course, the Nuggets usually have something to do with teams playing poorly in Denver.

The Clippers have lost two consecutive games and 10 of their last 12 in Denver.

Jamal Crawford was asked at the Clippers' shoot-around Monday how a player can adjust to playing in Denver's altitude.

"You can't," Crawford said. "You've just got to go as hard as you can for as long as you can. The next guy has to tag in and pick it up from there."
