Amid rumors about the future of James Harden, the Brooklyn Nets added their eighth straight loss on Sunday with a 124-104 loss to the Denver Nuggets. The team had a good start to the season, but currently, its players do not have good synchrony when playing.
It's only halfway through the season, and it already feels unlikely that the Nets will make it to the playoffs. Not only that, no team in the NBA history that accumulates eight consecutive losses has managed to win the championship.
In offensive terms, the team has a rating of 111.7, making it the eighth-best attack in the NBA. However, their problems are based on the lack of defense on their court. With a defensive rating of 122, the Rockets have the worst defense in the league.
