The Brooklyn Nets look to complete their first season sweep of the Denver Nuggets since 2015-16 when the teams meet Wednesday at Barclays Center.

The Brooklyn Nets and Denver Nuggets will be trying to rebound from lopsided losses when they meet Wednesday night at Barclays Center in their second and final matchup this season.

The Nets (28-27) have lost three straight games, including a 113-94 thumping at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday to open their current three-game homestand.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Denver (37-16) has won eight of its last 10 games, but took a 129-103 pounding from the Detroit Pistons Monday night in the second game of its four-game road swing, snapping a six-game winning streak.

Brooklyn hung around with the Bucks in the first half despite horrific shooting, but Milwaukee pulled away with a big third quarter and cruised to the win Monday night. The Nets put up season-low shooting marks of 32.4 percent overall and 11.9 percent from 3-point range in the loss.

D’Angelo Russell paced Brooklyn with 18 points and five assists. Jarrett Allen had 11 rebounds and four blocked shots.

The Nuggets played without three starters due to injury in Detroit on Monday and the Pistons took control of the game by holding Denver to 19 points on 8-of-23 shooting in the second period to open a 13-point halftime lead.

Trey Lyles led the Nuggets with 20 points off the bench. Former Net Mason Plumlee added 15 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, Will Barton chipped in 10 points and seven dimes and Nikola Jokic finished with 16 points and three steals.

The rivalry between the Nets and Nuggets extends back to the roots of each franchise as charter members of the American Basketball Association in 1967. In regular-season play, the Nets were 27-41 in the ABA against the Nuggets, who played as the Denver Rockets from 1967-74.
