My hunch is that the NBA is not going to try and compete too much with the NFL on Sunday so we get this game between Denver and Brooklyn which just doesn’t have much juice to it.
Though Brooklyn is probably off to a better than expected start.
Denver is supposed to be a high scoring team but through the first couple of weeks we have not seen what made them so interesting at the end of last season.
Per the intro Denver is supposed to be an exciting, scoring team, one that can run you off the floor, especially when they are at home and at altitude. We just haven’t seen that yet.
What we have seen is Jamal Murray get off to a terrible start in his sophomore season. He is shooting 28% from the field and an ugly 9% from deep. Until he starts heating up the team will struggle.
The same can be said of Wilson Chandler, one of the great glue guys in the NBA. His shooting is only marginally better but he is averaging 6 points in 29 minutes of action.
Free agent acquisition Paul Milsap is leading the team in scoring but his numbers are down from what we saw in Atlanta. You can make an easy argument that he is not a great fit.
Denver does have balance to their scoring but everyone is down right now. If they are going to press in the Western Conference they are all going to have to pick it up and be more efficient.
This is going to be another lost season for the Nets but they have committed to playing up and down basketball. Thus far they have been able to score at a high rate but are just as bad on defense.
My hunch is that the early returns are not going to hold up over the course of a season.
DeAngelo Russell definitely likes this style and he is leading the team at 21ppg.
Amzingly they are really spreading out the minutes and the scoring with 7 players averaging in double figures thus far.
There is not a strong defensive or rebounding presence on the Nets. Trevor Booker leads the team in board at less than 8 per game but he is small even by stretch four standards.
Their only chance is to score a lot.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
No line yet posted as this is being written but I wonder if they can make a total high enough. Both of their games went over last year and Brooklyn’s defense might be just what the Nuggets need.
In keeping with that thread if you think the Nuggets finally find their stroke you may want to take that side as well. There should be good value with them on the road the way they have been playing.

I like Denver to be alright in this spot. They are coming off a win too while the Nets are off a loss.
