The Nuggets travel back home after receiving a beat down from the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, 119 - 94. Brooklyn has two nights rest and will be ready to fight tonight. Brooklyn is currently in the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference standings and first year head coach Lionel Hollins has no interest in relinquishing their spot to the Pistons, Hornets, or Pacers breathing down their necks.
Joe Jonson scored 27 points against Denver in their December 23rd meeting earlier this season. Brooklyn tallied 60 points in the paint and 20 second chance points. Denver's bigs will have to fight for position against Mason Plumlee, Brook Lopez, and newly acquired Thaddeus Young.
The main draw for tonight's game should be consistent the rest of the way out. Everyone wants to see Jusuf Nurkic continue to develop and unlike season one of Game of Thrones, we want to see Prince Joffrey become King.
With a little fight and some hometown energy, Denver could overcome the odds to defeat the Nets. However my crystal ball shows a rested Brooklyn overcome on the road. Nets win 110-102
