Nuggets Schedule 2012: Denver Travels To Sacramento To Begin The Week

The Denver Nuggets enter the week playing good basketball -- they went undefeated on a four-game road trip over the last week, which included a thrilling double overtime win over Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks. The Nuggets are in second place in the Northwest and second in the Western Conference, behind Oklahoma City in both cases.

The team's full schedule is available here, and this is a look at the week ahead:

Jan. 25: at Sacramento Kings (8:00 p.m. MT, Altitude)
Sacramento is 6-11 overall, though four of those wins came at home. Tyreke Evans is averaging 16.5 points per game, while DeMarcus Cousins leads the team with 10.6 rebounds per game.

Jan. 27: vs. Toronto Raptors (7:00 p.m. MT, Altitude)
Toronto begins the week with the longest losing streak in the NBA (eight games), and that streak has sunk them to the bottom of the Atlantic division. It doesn't help that the Raptors' leading scorer, Andrea Bargnani, hasn't played since Jan. 11.
