Things keep getting worse for the Brooklyn Nets.
Things didn’t start well for the Nets with all of the controversy surrounding head coach Jason Kidd and his assistant (and his former head coach) Lawrence Frank.
They may have gotten even worse when the Nets took the court.
Timofey Mozgov scored 17 points and grabbed 20 rebounds while Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton each had 15 in what was a very balanced Denver Nuggets’ effort as they took down the Brooklyn Nets 111-87.
Joe Johnson led the Nets with 22 points and Andray Blatche came off of the bench to score 15 and grab six rebounds.
The Nets got out to an early, but it didn’t take long for the Nuggets to erase the deficit. By the end of the third quarter, they pushed their lead to 24.
The Nuggets dominated the game. Whether it was shooting (50.6% to 40.0% from the field), rebounding (the Nuggets grabbed 56 boards to the Nets’ 37) or just all around effort, the Nuggets were the better team in virtually every way.
The win improved the Nuggets to 11-6 while the Nets are now just 5-13.
