The Denver Nuggets pay a visit to the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center on Friday night. Here's a Nuggets vs Nets prediction.

Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have been in great shape as they've won five of their last six games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after beating the Raptors in a 113-104 road win on Wednesday. Nikola Jokic led the team with 31 points, 15 rebounds and six assists, Jamal Murray added 20 points with six assists while Aaron Gordon and Michael Porter Jr. chipped in with 12 points each. As a team, the Nuggets shot 50 percent from the field and 12 of 33 from the 3-point line as they took control of this one early, pouring in 61 points in the first half to build a 20-point lead and their lead was never less than eight points at any stage.

Brooklyn Nets

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in a slump as they've lost five of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to put an end to a four-game slide after getting routed by the Knicks in a 121-102 loss on Wednesday. Cam Johnson led the team with 20 points on eight of 14 shooting, Cam Thomas added 20 points and five assists while Mikal Bridges chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Nets shot just 36 percent from the field and 15 of 47 from the 3-point line as they struggled right from the start, scoring just 20 points in the first quarter to fall behind by double digits and things only got worse in the second half where the deficit ballooned to 25 points. Royce O'Neale had a rough night as he scored just six points on two of 11 shooting while Mikal Bridges shot just four of 21 from the field and one of eight from the 3-point line.

Nuggets vs Nets prediction

The Nuggets have been in a groove lately and they will be full of confidence following their dominant win over the Raptors in their last outing, while the Nets are stuck in a slump at the moment and they didn't look too good in their blowout loss to their rival Knicks on Wednesday. These two teams met just a week ago and it was the Nuggets who romped to a 124-101 win, so even though I'm expecting a closer contest, I'm sticking with the Nuggets to get the win and cover at this short line.
