Seven matches today and this will be my 3rd and final preview, there is no reason to write here every single analysis I made. We will watch a match between two fast paced teams with no defense, especially Brooklyn Nets who is conceding 117 points per game and are very weak at paint defending with Mozgov, Booker and Acy as tall guys under basket.
And tonight they will try to stop frontcourt consisted of two best players in Nuggets an all star Paul Millsap and future All star Nikola Jokic. Randae Hollis Jefferson who is best defender can play PF even tho he is a bit undersized, but so is and Millsap so it will be fun challenge and good match up to watch so there will be more room for Jokic to both hold the ball and dominate. It is expected for Mozgov to play less minutes because he is too slow for Nikola and won't be able to run on 3pt lane where Jokic will play for some time of each attack.
Nikola Jokic started bad in season with 7 points against Gobert in Utah (nothing strange as Gobert is beast) and 0 points against Cauley Stein who is great defender too, but still weird game for Jokic who took only 3 shots. But since then he had more ball in his hands and scored 27,18,18 on Gortat, Howard and Dedmon who are all great defenders and now he is going on bad paint defenders against team with very quick attacks what will give him even more chances to score. Brooklyn is 28th in paint defending, team defending and center position defending.
