Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Brooklyn Nets vs Denver Nuggets

Brooklyn Nets 's Latest Performance :
The Nets have now won back-to-back blow out games against the 76ers and the Suns. They will face a tough challenge ahead as they will be going up against a Nuggets team who is currently undefeated at home this season. Caris LeVert has been one of the bright spots on the Nets roster he has now scored at least 20 points in three straight games. He is coming off a 26 points outing against the Suns in his last game and hopes to keep the ball rolling against the Nuggets. The Nets used a strategy that works against rookie Ayton where they allowed Ayton so much space so he will have to shoot the ball but that won’t work against Jokic who will look to be aggressive at home after attempting only a single shot against the Grizzlies in his last game. Jarrett Allen will be responsible for Jokic as he had a strong all-around game with 10 points, nine rebounds and five assists against the Suns in his last game. The Nets are one game below .500 but they like their chances in this game after two straight blowout victories. The team confidence is at an all-time high.
Denver Nuggets's Latest Performance :
The Nuggets are coming off their second loss of the season against the Grizzlies. The game ended in a weird fashion as Jokic tried to go for the game winner and that was his first shot attempt of the game. That lost against Memphis snapped a five-game winning streak for the Nuggets. They shot just 39 percent from the field and had 19 turnovers that led to 23 Grizzlies points. Murray, coming off his career-high 48 point outing, was just 6-of-21 for 15 points. The Nuggets had no answer for Gasol in this game as he dominated the paint with his patent jump hook. It was a pretty odd game for Jokic who attempted only a single shot against Gasol. He was in foul trouble tonight and committed six turnovers. He will bounce back against the Nets going up against Jarrett Allen and they are playing back at the Pepsi Center where the Nuggets are undefeated this season they are 6-0 on the season.

Against The Spread Selection: Denver Nuggets
My reason for the pick :
The Nuggets remain undefeated at home while the Nets get their two-game winning streak snapped. The Nets will have no answer for Jokic in this game as he is a different player at home than he is on the road. The Nuggets will remind us all why they are undefeated at home so far this season. The Nuggets after years and years of development they believe that this year might be the year they can compete against the Warriors. They have two great wing players and a center in Jokic who can really score the ball if he chooses to. For the Nets their future is extremely bright they might have found an upcoming star in LeVert as the Nets will likely build their team around him if he keeps up his great production.
