December 23 vs. Detroit Pistons: Win

In another back-to-back this month, the Nets square off against the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons hold the worst record in the NBA at 2-15, and the Nets will get a much-needed blowout win. The Pistons are currently on a 14-game losing streak and continue to build around Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey, and Ausar Thompson.

December 26 at Detroit Pistons: Win

After having a day off on Christmas, the Brooklyn Nets get a late Christmas gift from Santa: another win against the Pistons. This will most likely be another blowout win.

December 27 vs. Milwaukee Bucks: Loss

In the third back-to-back of the month, the Nets square off against the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard will continue to be two of the best dynamic duos in the league and steamroll the Nets. This is also the Nets' last home game in 2023.

December 29 at Washington Wizards: Win

In the nation's capital, the Nets square off the Washington Wizards. Since being traded from the Warriors, many NBA fans expected a breakout year from Jordan Poole. However, he has not shown it so far, and his head has not been in the game. The Nets get back in the win column stress-free.

December 31 at Oklahoma City Thunder: Loss

In the last game of 2023, the Nets take on the Thunder. In one of the most underrated teams in the league, the Thunder have been firing on all cylinders lately and will continue against the Nets.

Overall December record: 7-8
