Denver Nuggets Release 2010 Preseason Schedule

The Denver Nuggets are keeping it in the Western Conference for the preseason in 2010.  Nary an Eastern Conference team is to be found out of the eight warm up games.  There is not a great deal of traveling as all of their games are between Minneapolis and Los Angeles, but they do play seven games in 11 days and that could cause some wear and tear.  Hopefully they will be able to sucker a handful of warm bodies into training camp despite the fact the roster is basically set.

2010-11 Denver Nuggets Schedule

The NBA has released the schedule and here are some highlights of the Denver Nuggets 2010-11 schedule:

  • They open at home versus the Utah Jazz on October 27.
  • The Nuggets only have 19 back to backs which I think is the lowest number they have had over the past couple of seasons and should be about average.
  • As was the case last season they have a bunch of back to back games in the first couple of weeks.  Four back to backs in the first three weeks to be exact, including a four game in five night stretch that sees them play the Clippers at home, head to Dallas, on to Chicago and then they finish in Indiana.
