Denver came back in the fourth quarter, narrowing to 122-120 before Jokic missed the potentially game-winning three-pointer.

Brooklyn comes into this game after losing their last two games to the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Sacramento Kings. In both games, the Nets had a quarter where the opponent outplayed them completely to either get back in the game or turn the fight into a blowout.
Denver comes into this game after losing two of their last three games to the Toronto Raptors and the New York Knicks. The Nuggets haven’t been as dominant lately as they have been for most of this season as their defense appears to have taken a step back.
