The Denver Nuggets will be going on the road on Tuesday to face the Brooklyn Nets as both teams try to move closer to .500.
The Nuggets and the Nets split their two-game regular season series last year, as both teams were able to win one away game. The Nuggets picked up the bigger win of the two when they came away with a dominant 111-87 victory in Brooklyn.
Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson has faced the Nets six times in his career, averaging 14 points and 4.7 assists per game against them. Power forward Kenneth Faried has been able to average 10 points and 5.5 rebounds per game against Brooklyn in his career, while small forward Wilson Chandler has scored 15.1 points per game against them in 14 games.
The Nets had a 57-point second half in their game against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday, which helped them pull off a 110-105 home win. They shot the ball very well in that win, finishing with a 526 field goal percentage.
Through 26 games this year, the Nets have played pretty well on the defensive end of the court, but they are barely averaging over 95 points per game against their opponents.
