The Nuggets released their schedule today, and after first glance it looks very favorable for them. After two tough games in October, November should be a breeze. Their only tough game will come on Friday the 13th against the Lakers at home. Hopefully the Nuggets can beat up on far inferior teams and gain some confidence going into their Western Conference games.
The Nuggets have finally earned some respect for the league, getting 29 nationally televised games this year, including the nightcap on Christmas day. I’m sure the Nuggets are thrilled to be playing in Portland on Christmas day as well.
The Western teams that the Nuggets only play once are the Kings, Rockets, Clippers, and Mavericks for what it’s worth.
22 back to back games including one to start the season and one to finish the season.
Playing the Clippers twice on national TV (what are TNT and ESPN thinking?)
3 games within 30 days on ABC (@SA, vsBOS, @LAL)
