With a strong start to a season-high eight-game trip, the Brooklyn Nets are one road win away from a franchise record.
It isn't likely to come easy against a Denver Nuggets team that hasn't lost at home in more than two months.
The Nets will try to set a team mark with their 21st road win Friday night when they face the Nuggets, who are tied for the best home record in the NBA.
Brooklyn (42-29), improved to 4-1 on its trip and 20-15 on the road with a 111-93 victory over Portland on Wednesday. That tied the franchise record for away victories set in 2005-06, and the Nets have a chance to finish with a winning road mark for the first time since joining the NBA.
Brook Lopez led the way with 28 points while Reggie Evans matched a career high with 22 and added a career-best 26 rebounds.
Evans, who has averaged 17.8 rebounds in his last six games and has grabbed at least 22 boards four times in the past 10, became the first player to reach 22 and 26 in the same game this season.
