Denver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets Preview, Prediction, and Pick
We love big games in the NBA, and the game just before the NBA All-Star break between the Denver Nuggets and the Brooklyn Nets has the potential to be an excellent one. The Nuggets are one of the hottest teams in the NBA through the 9th, as they've won nine games straight and have jumped up to the 4th spot in a strong Western Conference. Many people think that this Nuggets team could be a serious contender thanks to the team style basketball that they play. The Nets on the other hand are playing strong as well, and they are 29-21, and have looked like a different team since changing their head coach. This game should be a great one, and with the all-around talent on both sides it makes for a game to watch.

The Nuggets are led by simply strong all-around play, their starting lineup features Ty Lawson, Andre Iguodala, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, and Kosta Koufos. They also have some strong bench options in Andre Miller and Corey Brewer for starters. The Nuggets simply gel, and it seems like the additions that they had in that big Carmelo Anthony trade are coming together just fine. They are a fun team to watch, and I think that as long as they keep their core together they could make a push.
The Brooklyn Nets on the other side are led by their "big three" in Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, and Joe Johnson. When the team didn't land Dwight Howard, they locked in Lopez as a strong option at center, and he's had a great year. While Williams and Johnson have been up and down, Lopez has been a great inside presence. Don't look past the Nets, as they also play very well at home and they've gotten better as the year has progressed. This is a playoff team, and getting a nice home win like this would be big.

This is going to be a fun one, as the Nets get a slight edge for being at home, but the Nuggets are playing better basketball right now. I think that this game will be close to a pick with this being written before the line comes out, but when all is said and done I'm going to roll with the home team. The Nets are going to be well-aware of how big getting this win would be, and I think that they are going to come out with a fire behind team leading into the 2013 NBA All-Star break, so I'm taking them to get the job done by about four. The difference will be the inside game, as the Nuggets struggle against big men, and the Nets have a strong one of those.
Prediction: Brooklyn Nets- 94 Denver Nuggets- 90
Pick: Brooklyn Nets
