After a dominating win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the San Antonio Spurs get set to take on the Brooklyn Nets in a SEGABABA for both teams.

The Spurs seemed to finally get over their shooting woes versus Minnesota, shooting 54.8% from the field and a scorching 61.9% from 3. They'll look to turn that spark into a hot streak against a Brooklyn team that allows over 100 points per game.

This is a SEGBABA, so there's no telling what the Spurs' lineup will look like. Regardless of who plays, it is almost certain that their team defense will be great. They're first in the league in scoring defense, allowing just 91.6 points per contest. Even when guys like Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard sit, the Spurs work well enough as a unit to make things extremely difficult for the opposition.

As said before, this is a SEGABABA for the Nets as well. Last night they squeaked out a victory versus a struggling Oklahoma City team. Jarrett Jack was the hero of this game, scoring 23 on 8-15 from the field, and adding 5 assists.

In a game versus Brooklyn, you know guys like Deron WIlliams, seven-time All-Star Joe Johnson, and Brook Lopez are going to pull some weight. The player to keep an eye on this year is rookie Bojan Bogandovic.

Drafted in the secnd round out of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2011, Bogandovic stayed in Europe before signing a multi-year deal with the Nets prior to this season. He has started every game for Brooklyn this year and has not disappointed. In about 32 minutes per game, Bogandovic is averaging 11.3 points per game on 47% from the field and is shooting a more than respectable 37.3% from long-distance. He's a bit one-dimensional right now, and could be exploited on defense, but his scoring talents will have to be monitored.
