The Denver Nuggets are the 2010 Northwest Division Champions

Thank you Phoenix.  The Denver Nuggets may have blown their shot at the third seed and a matchup with the battered Trail Blazers, but things could have been much worse.  The Utah Jazz will be a difficult opponent, but add in home court advantage and the fact Utah has not been great down the stretch, and Denver has more than a good chance to advance.  Chris Tomasson is reporting the Nuggets will open at home on Saturday at 8:30 Mountain (Editor’s Note:  It was apparently changed to Sunday – see below).

You can count on an avalanche of coverage over the next few days as we prepare for game time.  Head on over to Salt City Hoops for all the Utah Jazz info you can stand.

Update: Here is the preliminary schedule:

Game 1 – Sun April 18 Utah at Denver 10:30PM TNT
Game 2 – Tue April 20 Utah at Denver 10:00PM NBATV
Game 3 – Fri April 23 Denver at Utah 10:30PM ESPN2
Game 4 – Sun April 25 Denver at Utah 9:30PM TNT
Game 5 * Wed April 28 Utah at Denver TBD TBD TBD
Game 6 * Fri April 30 Denver at Utah TBD TBD TBD
Game 7 * Sun May 2 Utah at Denver TBD TBD TBD

The Nuggets and Avalanche are both scheduled to play at the Pepsi Center on Sunday and Tuesday.  Could be interesting.  I smell a steel cage match between Stern and Bettman before both games to see who gets the arena.

Update to the update: Games one and two have been moved up a day (these times are Mountain):

Game 1 – Sat April 17 Utah at Denver 8:30PM ESPN
Game 2 – Mon April 19 Utah at Denver 8:30PM TNT
Game 3 – Fri April 23 Denver at Utah 8:30PM ESPN2
Game 4 – Sun April 25 Denver at Utah 7:30PM TNT
Game 5 * Wed April 28 Utah at Denver TBD TBD TBD
