*All statistics, standings, rankings, records and trends are current as of this writing at 5:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, Feb. 22.
Brooklyn has been bad this season. At 9-47 overall, that much is obvious.
But unlike other bad teams, this franchise is still dealing with the aftermath of the trade that brought in Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce years ago.
The Nets don’t own their draft picks for the next two offseasons as a result of that trade, meaning their inept play is a result of a talentless roster — not a true tank job.
The good news for fans in Brooklyn is that the team, with no ability to lose for ping pong balls, has been more competitive at times than you might think.
For instance, this team is 24-29 on the year ATS. A sub-.500 record is never anything to celebrate, but that percentage is far higher than the team’s overall percentage.
On the road, Brooklyn is actually 12-10 ATS.
Will the Nets be able to hang enough points on the Nuggets to make this one competitive?
Denver is a high-scoring team with playoff hopes this season, but its offensive potency is a major byproduct of the fact that they place at a blinding pace.
What does that mean for this contest? The Nuggets are going to score a lot of points…and they’re going to give up a lot of points.
On the year, Denver is 25-31 overall. That percentage increases, however, when you look at the numbers ATS.
ATS the Nuggets are 29-27 (14-13 at home).
Getting stops won’t be too difficult against a Brooklyn team that ranks near the bottom of the league in offensive efficiency. But don’t expect this one to become a defensive battle at any point during the 48 minutes of action.
This will be a shootout, and Denver has more firepower.
