Nuggets aim to get defense on track versus Nets

The Brooklyn Nets and host Denver Nuggets meet in a nationally televised game on Thursday night, but neither team enters the matchup feeling great about their last game.

A win for one of them might temporarily relieve the sting of tough losses. The Nets blew a 15-point halftime lead in a 119-114 setback at Utah on Tuesday night while Denver watched Atlanta win 125-121 in the Mile High City.

The 125 points were the most the Nuggets have allowed this season, barely eclipsing the 122 they gave up at New Orleans in a loss to the Pelicans. The Hawks outscored Denver by 18 in the second and third quarters, when the game turned, and Atlanta shot 68.2 percent over those 24 minutes.
