Denver Nuggets NBA Schedule 2021-22: Key Fixtures Against the Lakers, Suns, and More

The Denver Nuggets were one those unfortunate teams that lost their playoff 2021 series largely because of a key injury. With no Jamal Murray, their MVP Nikola Jokic could only do so much. In fact, their offense was so weak that they lost the conference semis 0-4 to the Suns.

This off-season, the Nuggets welcomed Jeff Green into their squad as a lethal weapon from beyond the arc. Plus, the re-signing of Marcus Howard and the max extension of Michael Porter were other welcoming moves. So a lot is expected of them in the upcoming season.

The Mile High City’s key fictures

October 20 vs Suns: The Nuggets will begin their campaign against the same side that irritated them with the “Suns in Four” chants during the playoffs. Everyone remembers the tension between the opposing fans and also that face-off between Nikola Jokic and Devin Booker that broke out during Game 4. Given all this, their game will be a must-watch.

The Nuggets do not have any game on the Christmas eve and in fact they have a fairly easy first month. They’d want Jamal Murray (who got injured on April 12) to complete his ACL rehab as soon as possible to stay amongst the Top 4 in WC.

January 15 vs Lakers: Although the Nuggets will end their season against the Lakers, their first clash will be three months after the season starts. Just in case Anthony Davis gets to start as a center, it will be great to see him weighing against Joker.
