If we had to pick just one, we’d have to say the nets blew everyone’s minds. Their December record was 12-1, and we expect them to continue their insane pace in 2023 as they quickly become favorites to win the Eastern Conference, where they sit just behind Celtics and Bucks in third place. Unfortunately for Brooklyn fans, they suffered a minor setback a few days ago when they lost their 12 straight winning streak to the Bulls.
New Orleans, on the other hand, was one of the best surprises of the season. They also sit third in the Western Conference after a stunning 10-5 game record in December. They won against Houston last time out and coach Green said after the game: “We need to finish our games better but I thought we set the tone from the start of the game. But we will win and learn from it.”
Today they meet face to face
A Battle of the Titans! Today is a special occasion as both distinguished trainers will meet in person at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans (7:30 ET). Pelicans are motivated by their latest win while the Nets need to wash their faces after Wednesday’s unfortunate loss to Chicago.
