This week only has two games but they are tough and the guys will need the rest days in-between.

The first game will be the final game in the Nuggets home stand and then they will travel to sunny L.A. to take on the Clippers.

Tuesday, December 18 Nuggets will host the Dallas Mavericks.  They currently have about a 500 record but are eighth in the west.  Keep your eyes on rookie Luka Doncic who is lighting it up and one of the most exciting new comers out there this season.  This is where the new-found defense will serve.  We aren’t hesitant to get in there with big guys.

Saturday, December 22 Nuggets finally leave home and travel to Los Angeles to meet the Clippers.  The Clippers are currently #3 in the west and are considered one of the big teams in this conference.  The Nuggets won the last time these teams played in October but it’s tough to play in L.A.
