Brooklyn

The point is with the altitude of Denver they may be walking into a buzz saw situation, especially for an older team which has been terrible on 0 days rest: 3-10 SU.

Under normal circumstances they would probably be a play on but not Thursday.

SG Joe Johnson may have made the All-Star team but I would argue he is not among the most important players for Brooklyn. At the top of that list is PG Deron Williams who appears that he might be getting his game back together. He had his best scoring game of the season in a recent win against Los Angeles and his improvement can have a ripple effect on other players.

This team needs someone who makes it easier for others and he is that guy.

Per the opening paragraph I think this is just a bad situation for the Nets. Whether they win or lose against Portland I think they will be winded while Denver will be rested and looking to break up yet another losing streak. Sometimes the schedule as much as anything is the factor to work with.

Denver

The Nuggets have to be looking at the Nets and saying no fair. They have a rookie coach and just one fewer victory but they are no where near the playoff picture while Brooklyn is right in there. Their recent play is not helping much though as the only wins they have over the last 10 games are a pair against Milwaukee, the worst team in the league.

It is no secret why these guys are losing either, they are terrible on defense – 28th in the league.

And the offensive personnel ain’t what is used to be with no more Melo in the fold and Danilo Gallinari out for the season. The Nuggets are walking wounded right now with Ty Lawson questionable which means more playing time for Aaron Brooks. He has been a little ray of light lately with his scoring but the team has been losing. He and Randy Foye are hardly a great backcourt duo so they need a lot more upfront and it isn’t there.

Even though the Nuggets are limping right now I think they can win this one with an enthusiastic push in the first half. Get off to a good start and they can get the Nets and their tired legs to give up just enough that they can end their current losing streak.

I thought they would be small favourites so the +2 is a nice cushion.

Spread Pick: Denver +2
O/U Pick: Over
Score Prediction: Denver 105 – Brooklyn 99
