Denver Nuggets News – 2013 Nuggets Updates
11/8/13 – The Nuggets were one of just three teams to see a decrease in average ticket price for home games since last year. Down 16%, averaging $80, Denver Nuggets tickets are the cheapest in the NBA
. While the start of their season has been rocky, Brian Shaw picked up his first win as an NBA coach last night against the Hawks. If you recall, last season, the Nuggets also started the season 0-3, and finished with 57 wins and a third overall seed in the NBA Playoffs. All is not lost, the Nuggets will be better when both Wilson Chandler (strained left hamstring) and Danilo Gallinari return from injury. When the Nuggets find a lineup that works, get two of their best players back from injury, and stop turning the ball over, they’ll be contenders in the West just as everyone had anticipated entering the season.
8/27/13 - The Nuggets finished the regular season with the most wins in franchise history, but fired coach George Karl after a fourth consecutive first-round playoff loss. Also gone is 2012 All-Star Andre Iguodala, who left for the Warriors
in free agency. For the Nuggets to remain playoff challengers, rookie coach Brian Shaw will hope for the quick recovery of forward Danilo Galinari and the development of his young big-men JaVale McGee, Kenneth Faried, and Timofey Mozgov. The three most expensive games at the Pepsi Center in 2013-14 are 12/30 against the champion Heat, 3/7 against the Lakers, and Iguodala’s return to Denver on 12/30
3/26/13 - The Denver Nuggets have moved into the No. 4 seed of the Western Conference. Before losing to the Hornets in New Orleans last night, the Nuggets were on a 15-game winning streak. Six of Denver’s last ten games will be played at home. The avg. ticket price of Nuggets tickets for the remaining games? $82. The three most expensive games left in the season are against 3 teams who have also earned a playoff berth already – the Brooklyn Nets ($112), Houston Rockets ($100), and San Antonio Spurs ($93).
2/22/13 - Aside from second-year sensation Kenneth Faried, the Denver Nuggets took All-Star weekend off, but don't let their lack of star power fool you, the Nuggets have plenty of talent. The rest seems to have helped the up-tempo squad as they defeated the Boston Celtics in their first game back after the break. As the team starts to push toward the postseason, we ask ourselves, "How can the Nuggets get past the first round of the NBA Playoffs?" Denver has been eliminated in the first round of the NBA Playoffs the past three years and nine times in the last 18 years. The Nuggets are 2-1 this season against the Utah Jazz who beat them in the first round of the 2010 NBA Playoffs; they're 1-1 vs. Oklahoma City who squatted their chances of advancing past the first round in 2011; and up 2-1 on the Lakers who beat them in seven games last year.
Denver Nuggets 2013 Season
The Nuggets currently sit in the No. 5 seed of the Western Conference but need to move up one spot in order to secure home-court advantage. Playing at home this year has certainly been an advantage as the team has only lost three games at
to date. Home-court advantage in the first round could definitely help the team get over the hump. Future hoops to jump through on the Denver Nuggets schedule? They'll play the Oklahoma City Thunder
, the Los Angeles Clippers
, and the New York Knicks
- all at the Pepsi Center in Denver
Denver Nuggets tickets are averaging $21 less than the League average of $117. And aside from five home games in the 2012-2013 regular season, the get-in prices were $20 or less.
