The Brooklyn Nets were in last place at this point last year and now they are in second place only trailing the Knicks by two games. As for the Nuggets they have played better then ever with out Carmello Anthony and Chauncey Billups, which delivered a shock to some people.
On the Nets side of the court they have a great team in the huddle with Gerald Wallace, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, Deron Williams, and Andre Blatche. Since that is six players their amazing line up digs down to their bench. Blatche starts on the bench mostly, but when he is worked into the game he is great defensive player to have. Also, Brook Lopez is a great defensive player, averaging 2.2 blocks a game leading the two teams. Lopez also, averages 7.4 rebounds and 18.9 points. Plus, Joe Johnson is mainly used as an offensive weapon as he creates 16.8 points on average. Also, Williams leads the team in assists with 7.6. On the Nuggets team they are made of a core consisting of point guard Ty Lawson, forward Danilo Gallinari, guard Andre Iguodala, and forward / center Wilson Chandler. Iguodala is playing very well transforming from a Sixer to a Nugget as he averages 13.4 points a game. Also, Ty Lawson is a main source of points as well as Gallinari. Lawson averages 15.7 points and Gallinari averages 17.2 leading the Nuggets.
Who do you think will come out on top? I believe that the Nets will continue their fighting season with a win over the Nuggets, but it will be a close game. Post your opinion in the comments!
