Denver and Brooklyn split two meetings last season, with each team winning on the road by 20-plus points.
Joe Johnson averaged 16 points and 28 minutes in those matchups.
The Nets held the Nuggets to eight points in the first quarter of their 112-89 win in Denver Feb. 27, which tied the fewest points allowed by any team in a first quarter last season and tied for the third-fewest points allowed in any quarter last season.
