This week will be spent at home in the beautiful Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
While the Nugs will be at home this promises to be a tough week with fierce competition. The games will be on Monday, Friday, and Sunday so there will be room for rest and staying home for a bit will be helpful.

Monday, December 10 Nuggets will host the Memphis Grizzlies. They currently have a record of 14-9 but are only #6 in the West. The last meeting between these teams, the Nuggets played terrible and disorganized. Here’s a chance for a little traction with a win. The Nugs had a hard time with the physical play of Marc Gasol but have really come around in that area. Mike Conley was fair in the last meet-up but the young Jaren Jackson Jr. was impressive.
Friday, December 14 Nuggets host the Oklahoma City Thunder. While the Thunder have had struggles this season, they are always a threat. Russell Westbrook is a force of basketball nature but he isn’t always “on”. During the last meet-up between these teams he was most definitely off. Defense don’t fail us now.
Sunday, December 16 Nuggets will be hosting the Raptors in a recent repeat. The Nuggets just beat the Raptors at home but it was close. Kawhi Leonard played well (and complained and flopped a lot), but Kyle Lowry was held up by the Nuggets D (but also complained and flopped a lot). If the Nuggets remain consistent they should get this win.
