Nets are one of those teams we can't beat this season without Porter, especially on the road.

But there is still no crowd attendance and their 2nd best Nets player will not play, so of course, we can beat them. I think the chances are 50-50.

Many will see this like Durant vs Jokic duel, but I guess both will be on a similar MVP level, so maybe something else will decide the winner. With Irving and Dinwiddie out Murray must dominate on point guard position, this is not the time for another passive game. G.Harris and Barton should stop LeVert and J.Harris to make bigger damage than usual. Durant is too fast for Millsap, Malone should finally start Green. Jokic and Hartenstein should stop somehow Allen under 15 points without foul trouble. Battle of the benches can be a key factor.

The Nets have been beaten by the Hawks, Grizzlies, Wizards and the Hornet but WE have no chance without MPJ.....LMAO.

Granted, I believe most of these games were w/o one of Durant or Irving on the court but to say we CAN'T beat them w/o MPJ, even on the road is erroneous. Have you ever heard the saying "on any given Sunday..." ?? And just by record, we're the better team :lol:


That said, I think the Nuggs win tonight, continue their road back into the Western Conference playoff race. Joker, you say some funny stuff, my man !!

As a Denver fan, I see so many times in the past two years how Denver beat some of the strongest NBA teams even without notable starters but then lost some game vs some total underdog which even semi-tanking the season. It is a sport, everything is possible, of course. But it is not the same when someone beat you, and when you beat yourself. Healthy Brooklyn is the TOP5 team, Denver without Porter (and Grant, and "bubble" Murray) is not TOP10, and when the game is played in New York difference is even bigger. But that is just a dramatic prelude for this game because without a crowd it is not a real road game and without 27-5-6 Irving, the Nets are not in full force for sure. If you take everything literally, maybe it's better not to comment on my posts, because I like to use sarcasm, parody and irony.

What a way to be given your first career start and be matched up against one of the league's best in KD. Actually excited for Bol. Great opportunity for him to earn not necessarily a starting spot, but at least rotation minutes. Hope he doesn't disappoint.

Does anyone if Malone has COVID...or perhaps was passed a bong...or received a spiked drink when he submitted his starting lineup card ??

Might be random but Durant seemed to be less aggressive when Bol was in. Maybe his length is really bothering him. Really slow footed but considering that, solid job defensively from Bol. On offense as well. Nice!

The high point game favors the Nets, they are 5-1 when scoring 119 but 0-4 with under 119... but seems 119 or even 129 will not help the Nets this time with Denver scoring 70 already in 1st half! Jokic and Durant doing their monster games, probably both with triple-doubles at the end, but in the rest of the team in Brooklyn only LeVert scored 7+ points while 4 Nuggets join Jokic with 7+, and that makes the difference.

Call me biased, but out of all Nuggets players which tried to stop Durant, one of the best offensive players of all times, most successful was Bol Bol! And he scored both his shots (including 3pt), so he played 1st half like a true NBA starter which makes to look even more strange Malone's tactic in the first 10 games to use guards Dozier and Barton to play PF instead of Green, Bol, Nnaji...

He is not used to being guarded by 7'2 wing, also Jokic with solid side help.

90-90 after nightmarish 20-36 third quarter. KD turned into GOAT level (Dozier is just undersized) while Jokic does not follow him this quarter. Both teams are on 50% for 3pt so far... a great offensive game.

3rd quarter has been the bane of this team for quite a while now, seems Malone needs to learn to keep this team on it's game better.

That 3rd was disgusting... Also, is Murray just paying hurt? He looks like he isn't moving very well and seems to be favoring a leg. This was a game we could have won.

I **** hate this team this season.

Roleplayers going 1on1 and leaking for free points instead of defending and rebounding. **** selfish team.

The few things that come to mind, Durant just dominated that 2nd half, at 32 he still has it. Second, Malone does not know how to keep this team focused, we've had too many games changed by a 3rd qtr lapse. Lastly, MPJ's presence really could've made a difference here IMO , too bad COVID has such a nasty effects on this game as well as this world. The persons/country who created this virus should be {fill in the blank}
