The 2015 Denver Nuggets ended the season with a 30-52 record, good enough for 12th in the Western Conference, missing out on a playoff berth for the third consecutive year. Heading into 2016, this team has an aura of excitement surrounding it, with a very young core of talented guys looking to improve upon last year’s effort.
Denver begins the 2016 basketball season on the road against the Pelicans in New Orleans on October 26th. Three days later, the Nuggets will return to their home Pepsi Center court, to face off against the Portland Trailblazers in front of a packed house of excited fans and Denver Nuggets ticket holders. When they meet on October 29th, we are likely to see a thrilling matchup as these two teams met early last season to fireworks. Nugget point guard Emmanuel Mudiay had not one, but two game saving blocks on Trailblazer Damian Lillard.
These two teams are well matched and could both be vying for a playoff spot this season. Expect them to sit anywhere between the fifth and tenth spot in the Western Conference. With a very young team, a well-liked coach in his second year with the organization and a bright future, the time to get on board with the Nuggets is now. Be sure to secure your Denver Nuggets tickets for the home opener on October 29th, as well as the rest of the season and cheer this thrilling team on. You won’t want to miss out on any of the action!
