BROOKLYN: LAST SEASON: 42-40, lost in the first round of the playoffs.
COACH: Kenny Atkinson (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyrie Irving (23.8 ppg), G Caris LeVert (13.7 ppg), F Joe Harris (13.7 ppg), F Taurean Prince (13.5 ppg), C Jarrett Allen (10.9 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G D'Angelo Russell, F DeMarre Carroll, F Jared Dudley, F/C Ed Davis, G Allen Crabbe, G Shabazz Napier, F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
KEY ADDITIONS: F Kevin Durant, G Irving, C DeAndre Jordan, F Prince, F Wilson Chandler, G/F David Nwaba, G/F Garrett Temple PLAYER TO WATCH: Irving. An undeniable All-Star talent who now has to show he has the temperament to handle New York. He asked to be traded from Cleveland, then changed his mind after originally saying he planned to remain in Boston, where the Celtics were a disappointment last season and he acknowledged doing a poor job leading the team. He grew up in New Jersey and wanted to come back home, and now he has to perform.
OUTLOOK: The Nets don't expect Durant to play this season, so they remain a bit weak at the forward spot compared to the top teams in the Eastern Conference. That means it's possible they won't even improve off last season's surprising sixth-place finish. But even if they don't, they appear well set for the future.
DENVER: LAST SEASON: 54-28, lost 4-3 to Portland in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Michael Malone (fifth season with Nuggets, 173-155; seventh season overall, 212-222).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jamal Murray (18.2 ppg), G Gary Harris (12.9), F Paul Millsap (12.6), C Nikola Jokic (20.1), G Will Barton (11.5).
KEY LOSSES: G Isaiah Thomas, F Trey Lyles, C Thomas Welsh.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Jerami Grant, C Bol Bol, F Michael Porter Jr.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Porter was the 14th overall pick in 2018 and missed all of last season as he recovered from back surgery. He skipped the Summer League in Las Vegas due to a balky knee. Now, he's healthy and ready to contribute. A healthy Porter gives the Nuggets another dimension on the perimeter, and another piece to add to the core of Murray, Harris, Jokic and Millsap.
OUTLOOK: The Nuggets have improved every season since Malone took over, going from 33 wins his first season to 40, 46 and 54 last season when they earned the No. 2 seed in the West. They didn't make any splashy moves in the offseason although they did bring back Millsap, picking up his $30 million option and agreed on a $170 million extension for Murray. Behind MVP-candidate Jokic, the Nuggets are a legit title contender.
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.

The defense has been a concern, especially after Hawks guard Trae Young scored a season-high 42 points in the win.

"In our three losses this year we've defended no one," coach Michael Malone said after the loss. "Trae Young came in here and did exactly what we knew he was going to do."

Malone emphasized defense last year, particularly from 3-point range, and the Nuggets went from the bottom of the league to one of the best in defending the arc. That wasn't the case against the Hawks, who shot 44.1 percent from long range.

Denver will have to figure out how to stop another talented guard in Brooklyn's Kyrie Irving. Irving leads the Nets in scoring at 29.7 points a game, and he's also handing out 7.0 assists. Irving attacks the basket more than someone like Young, and Malone will have to be ready to adapt on the fly.

"I've got to do a better job of making in-game adjustments," Malone said Tuesday. "Young dominated the game and I didn't make adjustments to help our guys."

The Nuggets have an advantage in that their roster is mostly the same from the last couple of years. Brooklyn is 4-6 after two straight losses and is still adjusting to new faces, particularly Irving, who signed as a free agent over the summer.

Those growing pains have shown through in the start of this road trip.

"I do think we're building something with the new group," Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. "I don't feel, 'Oh, you know we're not together.' I feel good about our group, I feel good about our process, I feel good about our system, I feel good about our players. These are tough games. The Utahs, the Denvers on the road. I like the way we competed."

Brooklyn has dealt with injuries to Caris LeVert, a suspension of forward Wilson Chandler for violating the league's anti-drug policy and the off-court issue of CEO David Levy parting ways with the organization just 55 days after being brought on due to philosophical reasons.

LeVert's sprained thumb kept him out of Tuesday's game and Atkinson chose to start Garrett Temple at shooting guard and keep Spencer Dinwiddie coming off the bench.

If LeVert is unable to Denver, it's likely Atkinson will use the same lineup.
