The Denver Nuggets came away with their eighth win of the season after beating the Philadelphia 76ers 106-98.
While out East, the Brooklyn Nets have been in a slump losing eight of their last nine games after losing to Washington in their last outing 118-113.
The Denver Nuggets earned just their eighth win of the season after beating Philadelphia 106-98. A key contributor in earning them the victory was forward Danilo Gallinari.
He went off for 24 points, while getting to the free-throw line 12 times (shot 11-12 from the charity stripe.)
His aggressive play really helped the Nuggets offense, especially when they just couldn’t get the lid off the basket.
Gallinari always seemed to get the Nuggets offense headed in the right direction whenever the team couldn’t seem to find a bucket. However, now he’s got to do that again next match.
Brooklyn is going to be looking to contain him right from the get go. But he’s got to find a way to contribute in order for Denver to come out on top. Despite being under .500 Brooklyn has a good offensive team.
So if they can outscore their opponents they’ll have a shot.
So that means Denver has got to keep their stars in check, while also being able to find scoring opportunities themselves. If they can do just that, they’ll be able to pull away on top.
The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a close loss to the Washington Wizards in their last game (final score 118-113.)
They kept up with Washington for much of the night, but in the end their suspect defensive efforts (allowed Washington to shoot 41.2% from behind the arc as a team) put them in a hole they couldn’t get out of.
Brooklyn allowed Washington to go off in the second half, outscoring them 67-47 through the final two quarters of play. Washington just continued piling on the points in the second half, and Brooklyn had no answer to stopping them.
However, now they get a chance at redemption in their next outing in Brooklyn. The Nets have a chance to put all this in the past in their next matchup with the Denver Nuggets.
Denver has a good team, but Brooklyn has a shot out pulling out the “W” in this outing. The Nuggets have shown themselves to be a young and inexperienced team that gives up leads at the end of games.
So if Brooklyn can keep the game close and capitalize at the end, they might be able to come out on top.
But that’s only going to happen if rookie point guard Isaiah Whitehead and veteran guard Randy Foye can step up at point for the Brooklyn Nets.
So far the point guard position has been the teams Achilles heal, but if they can get some production from that position this game they’ll be able to earn the victory.

Brooklyn has continued to lose due to their youth and lack of depth on the team. But this game, look for them to keep it close for the majority of the time. However, Denver will still most likely pull away out on top, because they just have the more talented roster.
