The Denver Nuggets lost to the Brooklyn Nets at home for their first home loss of the season, in a bad game for the home team.

One of the major flaws in the Denver Nuggets team from last year was the fact that they would constantly lose to teams below their level, and play to their competition.

Well, while both the Grizzlies and Nets have gotten off to better starts than we may have expected, the Nuggets have dropped two games in a row in the same type of fashion.

Plain and simple, a team cannot have these losses if they want to make the playoffs with a decent seed. Hopefully the team can rebound quickly, as they play the red-hot Milwaukee Bucks at home on Sunday.

With that being said, who played well, and who struggled in the heart breaker against the Brooklyn Nets? I will be discussing four different Nuggets players, and giving them grades, so without stalling anymore, let’s get started.
