TIP-INS
  
Nuggets: Coach Mike Malone believes his young backcourt will be the key to success this season. "The biggest challenge for us is going to be when you have a 21-year-old backup point guard and a 20-year old starting point guard, there are going to be inconsistencies. Can we try to help them and speed up their maturation as players? Because we have big plans, we want to be a playoff team and when you have two young guards who are going through growing pains at times, it doesn't make it always easy." ... Juancho Hernangomez (mononucleosis) was out.
  
Nets: Coach Kenny Atkinson said DeMarre Carroll (right ankle soreness) and Quincy Acy (left groin strain) are day-to-day. Jeremy Lin (right knee) was also out. ... Timofey Mozgov has now made two 3-pointers in seven games, which is more than he totaled the previous two. ... Jacob Wiley made his NBA debut.
  
UP NEXT
  
Nuggets: Visit New York on Monday. Denver then begins a six-game home stand.
  
Nets: Host Phoenix on Tuesday. Brooklyn then hits the road for five consecutive games.
