From our game preview...

Injuries: No Ben Simmons, Dennis Smith Jr or Lonnie Walker IV. Jacque Vaughn said last night he wasn’t planning any rest for his starters, but said he and his staff will look at things today.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is in concussion protocol. Jamal Murray is probable with bilateral ankle sprains. Aaron Gordon is probable with a right heel strain.

The Game: As usual, this game will be decided behind the three point line. The Nets are eighth in three point attempts per game, but the Nuggets allowed the third fewest threes per game. Among other issues on Monday, the Nets couldn’t keep up with the Sacramento Kings from deep and paid for it.
