There’ll be a new look to the Denver Nuggets this season, both on the court as well as the sideline. Mike Malone takes the reins for 2015-16, and the respected coach is focused on implementing an up-tempo style of play built on a foundation of aggressive defense. The Nuggets are looking to return to the playoffs after missing the cut for the first time in 11 seasons last year, and they’ve got the staff to make it happen. Danilo Gallinari is back to buoy Denver’s offense, and newcomer Emmanuel Mudiay will look to make an immediate impact in the Mile-High City.

Denver Nuggets 2015-2016 News and Updates
8/11/15 - The Denver Nuggets and their fans are likely still recovering from what was a terrible 2014-2015 season, but they’ll have to leave it all behind them as they head into the upcoming season in just ten short weeks. This week, the NBA released the official schedule for the 2015-2016 season. Unfortunately, the Nuggets will not have an easy start. They’ll be tested right away when they face the force that is James Harden and the Houston Rockets on the road. Then, they’ll face the Minnesota Timberwolves in their home opener at the Pepsi Center on Friday, October 30. Do they have what it takes to recover from their disappointing 30-52 record last season? Come find out this October. Tickets to the first home game are available for as little as $59.
4/6/15 - The Denver Nuggets have entered the final stretch for the 2014-2015 NBA season. They have had a lot of trouble on the court recently, but they just started a series of home games earlier this week. So far, they have not had any luck, taking a 107-92 loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. There are three more home games before they hit the road again, which are the final three home games for the entire season. If you want to catch the Nuggets live, this is your last chance. Otherwise, you are going to have to wait until October. Total, Denver has five games remaining this season, the final match being on April 15th against the Golden State Warriors. It has been an exciting season, but it is now winding down.
3/30/15 - After a hard series of away games, the Denver Nuggets returned to their court hopeful to start winning games again. The first, against the Philadelphia 76ers, turned out to be a bust, seeing the Nuggets fall short by 14 points, but the latter, against the Utah Jazz, was far more exciting. The Nuggets scored an impressive 107 points and won by 16. The Nuggets' next game will be a rematch against the Utah Jazz, then they will be returning for their final series of home games for the season. They will play four games, then the rest of their matches will be on other teams' courts, so this will be your last chance to see them live. The first game, against the Los Angeles Clippers, will be on April 4th and tickets start at $19.
3/23/15 - Since the Denver Nuggets lost their winning streak recently, they have been having a hard time regaining their momentum. They have now lost three consecutive games. Luckily, their series of away matches is coming to a close, and the Nuggets managed to end it strong. Their final road game, against the Orlando Magic on March 22nd, saw the Nuggets rack up an impressive 119 points, even going as far as earning an incredible 41 in the second quarter. From here, the Nuggets return to Denver where they can, hopefully, relax a little bit. First they will take on the Philadelphia 76ers, then they will face off against the Utah Jazz. The former game is completely sold out, but you can attend the latter for as little as $12.
3/16/15 - The Denver Nuggets have, unfortunately, ended their winning streak. It looked like they would carry their momentum from their series of home games on the road when they beat the New Orleans Pelicans on their own court in a double overtime game, but the Memphis Grizzlies proved to be too much. The Nuggets lost 81-92, the first time the Nuggets scored less than 100 in nine games. Jameer Nelson led them with 24 points, but Denver was trailing the entire game, only briefly taking the lead once. They are now 4th for the Northwest Division. The Nuggets have three more away games before they return on March 25th to play the Philadelphia 76ers. Tickets for that exciting game are available starting as low as $3.
3/9/15 - The decision was made last week to release Denver Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw, who some in the organization felt had lost his team’s attention as they continued to slide in the standings. The move was followed by a pair of victories for the struggling Nugs, who took down the Milwaukee Bucks at home before besting the Minnesota Timberwolves on the road the following night. Unfortunately for Denver, the schedule led them next to the state of Texas, where tough matchups with San Antonio and the Houston Rockets resulted in a pair of losses. Monday night brings a visit from the New York Knicks, followed by the NBA-best Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. Come out for Nuggets vs. Hawks at the Pepsi Center—seats are selling for as low as $4 each!
3/3/15 - No team was more ready to be finished with February than the Denver Nuggets, who posted only a single win in ten outings. The struggling young squad showed promise on Sunday versus the New Orleans Pelicans, taking a 65-65 tie into the fourth quarter. However, a 34-point quarter for the Pelicans ultimately was too much for Denver to overcome, as they fell by a score of 99-92. In happier news, Nuggets star Kenneth Faried—known best to fans as “The Manimal”—was named as an Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Legend by the league office, in recognition of his outstanding career playing for Morehead State. Denver will close out their current home stand on Tuesday night when they host the Milwaukee Bucks, and seats at the Pepsi Center are available for just $3!
2/24/15 - The Denver Nuggets haven’t gained any momentum since the All-Star break. They’ve lost three games in a row, the most recent game against the Brooklyn Nets. The Nuggets’ star player in that game was Danilo Gallinari with 22 points and two rebounds, but Denver’s offense only scored 82 points total against Brooklyn’s 110. Come down to the Pepsi Center on Friday (2/27) to see Denver host the Utah Jazz. Tickets start at $6. It’s a great way to kick off your weekend. On Sunday (3/1), bring a friend to watch the Nuggets take on the New Orleans Pelicans. Tickets start at $3, making it an inexpensive evening of excitement. Tuesday (3/3), the Nuggets host the Milwaukee Bucks. Catch your home team before they go out on the road.
2/17/15 - The Denver Nuggets have some interest in their point guard Ty Lawson at the trade deadline, but it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere. Lawson has been steady over the past three years for the Nuggets, and this year is no exception. He has a 16.9 points per game average, with 10.1 assists, for the NBA lead, tied with Washington’s John Wall. Come out to the Pepsi Center on Monday (2/23) to catch the Nuggets when they host the Brooklyn Nets. Tickets start at $6, so bring the whole family for a night of great entertainment. On Wednesday (2/25), the Phoenix Suns meet the Nuggets. With tickets at $5 and up, you can enjoy another evening out with the fast-paced action on the court cheering the home team to a win!
2/10/15 - After a six game losing streak, the Denver Nuggets finally caught a break against the Los Angeles Lakers. With a final score of 106-96, the game was tied going into the fourth quarter, where the Nuggets scored 35 points to the Lakers 25. Ty Lawson scored 32 points and had 16 assists during the game, making him the outstanding player of the game. Altogether, the Nuggets had five scorers who had double digits in points for a 54.4 percent overall shooting game. After the All-Star Break, Denver goes out on the road for two games before coming back to the Pepsi Center on Monday (2/23). Get tickets now to get the best seats starting at $6, so you can bring the entire family for a great night of exciting basketball.
2/2/15 - The Denver Nuggets experienced three more disappointing losses against the Memphis Grizzlies, Charlotte Hornets, and Philadelphia 76ers. The consensus is that the Nuggets are out of the play-offs in the Western Conference, even though their record (19-30) might be good enough if they were in the East. The next home game at the Pepsi Center is against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday (2/9). Razorgator has great seats for this game with ticket prices starting at $17. The Nuggets may not be having the season they had hoped for, but it’s still a great evening of fast-paced action on the court that breaks the monotony of your week. Let the Nuggets see that Denver loves them and support the home team. Come out and watch them play!
1/26/15 - The Denver Nuggets continued to slide in the standings this week, as their losing streak has reached a season-high seven games. There is reason for optimism in the Mile High City, though, as their last three losses have come by a total of only seven points, including a 117-115 heartbreaker in overtime handed to them by the Washington Wizards. Ty Lawson continues his outstanding play in spite of the results, putting up 19 points and dishing 11 assists in the Nuggets’ 102-98 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night. Wilson Chandler chipped in 18 and 10 boards for Denver as well. The Nuggets continue their three-game road trip on Wednesday night at New Orleans, where they will face All-Star Anthony Davis and his Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center. Great seats for the game start at just $3!
1/19/15 - After a five game winning streak earlier this month, the Denver Nuggets have lost the last four games. Coach Brian Shaw sums up their playing this season as terrible. The consensus is that they lack defense, but they are going to keep pushing through the season. Catch the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center when they host the Boston Celtics on Friday (1/23) and the Washington Wizards on Sunday (1/25). The tickets for Sunday’s game start at only $8, and you won’t get another chance to see the home team play for another week. Give the team support from their fans so they can turn their season around. With an 18-23 record, the Nuggets are not the worst team in the NBA, but they certainly were hoping for a better season.
1/12/15 - The win streak continues for the Nuggets, who have put up four straight W’s to improve their record to 17-20. Denver has not been .500 or better since December 2, when they dropped to 9-9 with a loss to Portland at home. They’ll need to work hard to get back on track, as they play seven of their next 10 games against opponents with winning records. Kenneth Faried has played outstanding ball over the last ten games, averaging over 13 points and rebounds, while Ty Lawson has consistently led the Nuggets in points and assists during their recent surge. Denver will face off with the Dallas Mavericks in a home-and-home series, starting in the Pepsi Center on Wednesday night. A limited number of seats are still available starting at just $12, so come out and support your Denver Nuggets!
1/5/15 - Brian Shaw made a simple tweak to his team’s pre-game preparation recently, and at least in the immediate, it’s showing results. The Denver Nuggets have won back-to-back games for the first time since mid-December, including a 29-point rout of the imposing Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night. To ask several Denver players, the difference has been scheduling gameday shoot-around for the afternoon instead of early in the morning. Additional rest, combined with the practice session being fresher in the team’s minds heading into the game, has given the Nuggets a much-needed lift, as they fight to climb back into the playoff race. They will continue their quest on Friday night when they visit the Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena, and Razorgator still has limited seats available from $47!
12/30/14 - The Denver Nuggets picked up a win on Friday night behind a monster game from Kenneth Faried, who posted 26 points and 25 rebounds on route to a victory over the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves. It was the first time since the team was founded in 1967 that a Denver player has gone for 25-plus points and rebounds in a game. Timofey Mozgov added 11 and 14 for the Nuggets, who dominated on the boards all evening, grabbing 62 rebounds to Minnesota’s 44. The advantage was enough to help overcome Denver’s 18 turnovers, equal to their number of assists as a team for the contest. The Nuggets will try to close out the year on a high note as they host the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night, and Razorgator is your ticket in to the Pepsi Center. Seats can still be had for as low as $29, but they’re going fast!
12/24/14 - The Denver Nuggets suffered a disappointing setback on Monday night, a 110-82 loss to the Charlotte Hornets that ended a two-game win streak, which came after losing seven of eight to start the month of December. Point guard Ty Lawson led the Nuggets with 18 points and four assists, but Denver’s cold-shooting—only 37 percent as a team from the floor including 2-18 from three-point range—ultimately sealed their fate. On the plus side, Denver enjoys a lighter schedule for the rest of 2014, with games versus Minnesota and the Los Angeles Lakers, and only one date with a winning team (Toronto). First up, though, they will visit the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night, and you can still get in the game with Razorgator—tickets start at just $21, but they’re going fast so act now!
12/16/14 - After an unfortunate 99-91 loss to the San Antonio Spurs last weekend, the Denver Nuggets are looking to redeem themselves against the Los Angeles Clippers in a few days. Despite a losing record so far this year, the Nuggets are ranked third in the Northwest Division standings, above both Utah and Minnesota. Last week, the team scored a big win against the Miami Heat, reminding fans that exciting basketball is played in Denver. The 102-82 game was a near blowout, with Wilson Chandler scoring 17 points and Arron Afflalo adding another 16. The Nuggets will play host to the Clippers Friday, December 19 at the Pepsi Center at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased starting at $17 per ticket.
12/8/14 - Following a tough loss on the road to the Toronto Raptors, the Denver Nuggets will try to rebound when they host the Miami Heat on Wednesday night. The Nuggets battled back from a 14-point third quarter deficit versus the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors, and held a lead for most of the fourth quarter before a timely three-pointer by Patrick Patterson tied the game at 102, forcing overtime. Denver was outscored 10-5 in the extra session to seal the disheartening loss, which dropped them to 9-12 on the season. The Nuggets hope a return to the mile-high stadium will cure what has been ailing them during three consecutive road losses, as they will face the new-look Miami Heat, led by Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Get in with Razorgator, with tickets starting at just $9!
12/2/14 - The Denver Nuggets have certainly turned things around this season. Once sitting at 1-5, the Nuggets are now at 9-8. Monday’s game against the Utah Jazz marked their seventh win in two weeks, during which they only suffered a single loss. However, this last game was intensely close. They managed to build up a 19 point lead by the half, but Utah fought long and hard to make a comeback. The Jazz did exceptionally well, but the Nuggets’ defense was able to hold off long enough to snag the victory with a final score of 103-101. Denver is in 2nd for the Northwest Division, and will be playing the number 1 spot, the Portland Trailblazers (13-4), next. That promises to be an exciting game, so if you would like to attend, tickets can still be found for as little as $4.
11/25/14 - The Denver Nuggets had a very rough start to the season, losing six games in a row. However, starting on Monday the 17th, they’ve been tearing up the court. This Sunday, the Nuggets’ victory over the Los Angeles Lakers marked their fourth win in a row. All the previous games in their winning streak were strong victories, but this last one went into overtime. Ultimately, Denver was able to pull ahead by 7 points bringing the final score to 101-94. If Denver wanted a shot at the championship, they had to pull their game together and they absolutely rose to the occasion. Sitting at 6-7 and 2nd in their division, the Nuggets may be starting a very impressive comeback. Follow Tuesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls to see if they can continue their winning streak.
11/17/14 - The Denver Nuggets finally ended their losing streak on Friday. In their match against the Indiana Pacers, they scored 108 over Indiana’s 87, a well deserved blowout. The Nuggets had all six of their losses for this season in a row, but hopefully this victory can break that cycle and maybe even start a winning streak. Sitting at 2-6 and 4th in their division, the Nuggets have a long way to go if they want to improve their win ratio. It’s certainly not impossible, but I hope they’re ready for a fight. They have a couple away games coming up, but catch them when they return to Denver on the 19th as they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Tickets are already available starting at $4.
11/11/14 - Unfortunately, the Denver Nuggets lost their Sunday night match against the Portland Trail Blazers. This loss brings Denver to 1-5 and is the fifth loss in a row. Like all of their games this season, this one was very close all the way until the end of the fourth quarter; the Nuggets have consistently fallen just slightly short. They still played a very good game, trailing by only eight points at the half. This game also marked the return of J.J. Hickson, who has just finished a five-game suspension. The Denver Nuggets are set to face off against the Trail Blazers again on Wednesday, but this time with the home court advantage. If Denver is to redeem themselves and end their losing streak, you can catch it with tickets starting as low as $4.
11/4/14 - Another NBA season is underway, so come out to the Pepsi Center to cheer on your Nuggets as they begin their quest for an NBA championship in the rugged Western Conference. Led by the steady point guard play of Ty Lawson and the amazing physicality of Kenneth “The Manimal” Faried, the Nuggets are the best ticket in town. Get out of the freezing cold and into the Pepsi Center to see the Nuggets take on the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers led by Lebron James on 11/07, as well as upcoming contests against division rivals Portland and Oklahoma City. Come cheer on your Nuggets in their quest for a 2015 playoff berth. Razorgator is the best place to get your tickets, with outrageously low prices starting at just $2.
10/28/14 - It’s a sign of the times. Denver Nuggets star Ty Lawson recently opened himself up on the social media platform Reddit, to an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session; according to the Roundball Mining Company blog, Lawson thinks the Nuggets can be a top three team in the West this year.
10/23/14 - Are the Denver Nuggets playoff-worthy? One Nugget of gold on the roster, Kenneth Faried, earned himself a lucrative contract extension, after a clearly golden performance at the FIBA world championships this summer.
8/18/14 – After an injury-marred season took the Denver Nuggets far out of contention in 2014, the squad is slated to return a full and healthy roster ready to tip-off their 2014-2015 schedule. Mile High mania will open on Oct. 29 at the Pepsi Center against the Detroit Pistons. Not long after, Denver is slated for their road opener at Northwest-Division champion OKC Thunder (Nov 1), followed by a visit from LeBron James and the Cavaliers on Nov. 7. This team has entered playoffs in 10 of their last 11 seasons, and with crucial players like Danilo Gallinari and JaVale McGee recovered, it’s not hard to see them making a return in 2015. Buy your Denver Nuggets tickets now and watch the franchise get back to its winning ways!
After achieving a franchise-record winning season just a year prior, the Denver Nuggets succumbed to the deluge of injuries that marred their rotation. Unable to recover from the loss of key players, the Mile High team was left out of the playoffs for the first time in a decade. The course of the 2013-2014 campaign saw JaVale McGee, JJ Hickson, Nate Robinson and Danilo Gallinari suffer season-ending injuries and the Nuggets racked up a combined 170 games missed due to health. Though the 36-win season looks atrocious on paper, the team actually advanced under Brian Shaw. The head coach will only be more comfortable in his sophomore year, and the growth of younger players Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried was palpable last season.
The summer has shown efforts to maintain Denver's high-scoring offense and bolster their sieve-like defense. The franchise has returned Arron Afflalo in exchange for Evan Fournier and the front office made an extremely impressive move in the Draft. The Nuggets picked up Jusuf Nurkic (No. 16) and Gary Harris (No. 19) by trading their No. 11 pick, plus Anthony Randolph, to the Chicago Bulls. This team is deep, and now that X-factors Gallinari are McGee are due to return from their respective leg injuries, there’s no where to go but up. Score Denver Nuggets tickets now and watch this team bring the Mile High mayhem back to the NBA!
4/17/14 - After winning three straight, the Denver Nuggets dropped their final two games of the season, including the season finale to Golden State, 116-112. Still, the Nuggets got an outstanding performance from Randy Foye, who tossed in 32 points while handing out 11 assists for a double-double; Kenneth Faried also collected a double-double as well, combining 15 points and 13 boards. Anthony Randolph came off the bench to pour in 19 points along with five rebounds, and Timofey Mozgov added 10 points, five boards and a pair of blocked shots for the Nuggets. After the game, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw indicated to the Denver Post that he hopes that Faried, described as a “burgeoning star,” is not traded by management in the offseason.
4/11/14 - It was Randy Foye’s night on April 9 when the Denver Nuggets knocked off visiting Houston, 123-116. Foye notched a double-double for the Nuggets with 30 points and 15 rebounds, which he combined with five rebounds and a pair of steals; Kenneth Faried nearly had a double-double of his own, tossing in 23 points and grabbing nine boards, while Timofey Mozgov had 22 points, six rebounds, and a pair of blocks. Even though Quincy Miller couldn’t quite break double figures in scoring (nine points), his eight rebounds and four blocked shots were a key contribution to the Nuggets’ bottom line this game.
4/4/14 - On the strength of Kenneth Faried’s double-double of 34 points and 13 rebounds (as well as three rejections), the Denver Nuggets broke a losing streak in defeating New Orleans 137-107 on April 2. Not far behind Faried in scoring was reserve point guard Aaron Brooks, who poured in 24 points – including 6-of-8 shooting from three-point land – while collecting a trio of rebounds, a pair each of steals and blocks, and an assist coming off the bench; the starting point guard, Ty Lawson, collected 14 points and dished out 12 assists for a double-double. Timofey Mozgov added 15 points, a steal, and a pair of blocked shots for the Nuggets.
3/27/14 - The Denver Nuggets became the 15th straight victim of San Antonio’s current winning streak, falling 108-103 in San Antonio on March 26. The shorthanded Nuggets (four players on the bench did not play due to an assortment of injuries) were led by reserve guard Aaron Brooks with 25 points and eight assists; starting forward Kenneth Faried added 24 points, 10 boards, and four steals; and center Timofey Mozgov chipped in with his own double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds. Another reserve, Darrell Arthur, made his presence felt with four rejections.
3/20/14 - Down seven at halftime, the Denver Nuggets got seven players – including all five starters – in double-digit scoring in their last game, a 118-109 victory over visiting Detroit. Leading the charge for the Nuggets was Aaron Brooks, whose 27 points and 17 assists were both game highs for the night; Randy Foye added 22 points, Kenneth Faried scored 15, Darrell Arthur contributed 13 off the bench, while starters Timofey Mozgov, Ryan Fournier and reserve J.J. Hickson each provided 11 points in the win. Hickson led Denver’s rebounding effort with 11, while Mozgov cleared nine boards.
3/13/14 - With a 120-112 victory at Orlando, the Denver Nuggets claimed their first win on this particular road swing through the Southeast, after dropping games to New Orleans in overtime and Charlotte. The Nuggets got 20-plus points from a trio of players: Kenneth Faried’s 26 points led the team, plus nine rebounds; Wilson Chandler had a double-double combining 21 points with 10 rebounds; and J.J. Hickson contributed 20 points in a reserve effort for the Nuggets. The Nuggets enjoyed a clear frontcourt advantage over Orlando, outscoring the Magic 54-40 in the paint, and out-rebounding them by a 52-38 margin.
3/7/14 - Despite being significantly outscored in the paint, the Denver Nuggets snapped a six game losing streak on March 5, handing the Dallas Mavericks a 115-110 loss at the Pepsi Center. Six Nuggets broke double figures in scoring, led by Wilson Chandler’s 21 and Ty Lawson’s 20. Center Timofey Mozgov pulled down 10 boards, including six on the offensive glass, while Kenneth Faried had eight rebounds. Off the court, Nate Robinson has made it clear that he intends to return and be ready next season; Robinson is currently rehabbing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
2/28/14 - The Denver Nuggets are struggling to find a winning footing, dropping four out of five of their contests coming out of the All Star break, including a 119-87 loss to Chicago after which coach Brian Shaw went “from frustrated to full-on blister,” said CBSSports.com. The most recent loss came at home in the Pepsi Center on February 25, as Northwest Division leaders Portland prevailed, 100-95. Still five players scored in double figures for the Nuggets, led by Randy Foye’s 17 and reserve J.J. Hickson’s 16 off the bench. Hickson was also a monster on defense, clearing 25 rebounds – 15 off the offensive glass alone.
2/20/14 - The Denver Nuggets were active at the trade deadline, sending problem-child guard Andre Miller to Washington in a three-way deal which saw them receive forward Jan Vesely; the Nuggets also acquired guard Aaron Brooks from Houston in exchange for forward Jordan Hamilton. The biggest news is of the departure of Miller, who had left the team and not played for the Nuggets since an altercation with head coach Brian Shaw at the beginning of the year, and had been on the trading block ever since. Miller is expected to back up All Star reserve and dunk king John Wall in Washington.
2/10/14 - After a pair of wins including one over the Los Angeles Clippers, the Denver Nuggets lost their momentum, dropping a pair of contests to the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons. Adding to the loss to the Pistons was a fractured rib suffered by starting guard Ty Lawson, which also knocked Lawson out of the Nuggets contest with Indiana. Additionally, the Nuggets are also without fellow point guard Nate Robinson, who has a sprained anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Randy Foye is expected to be at the point in their absence.
2/3/14 - The Denver Nuggets received some good news this past weekend as starting point guard Ty Lawson is expected to return this week from a strained rotator cuff, reports the Denver Post newspaper. The struggling Nuggets had just two guards of any kind – shooting guards Randy Foye and Evan Fournier – healthy for their recent 100-90 loss to the Toronto Raptors, in which Denver committed 26 turnovers. Coach Brian Shaw told the Post, “It’s comforting for me” that Lawson will be available to run the point. “I’m sure it’s going to be a lot more comforting for the other guys.”
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.
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.
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
Pepsi Center 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. The most expensive Nuggets tickets were both against the Lakers - Denver Nuggets tickets for the December 26 game averaged $241, Nuggets tickets for the February 25 game averaged $229. The cheapest Nuggets game ticket was against the Toronto Rapids back in December, averaging just $46.
