Nuggets Schedule 2012: Denver To Face Phoenix, Orlando This Weekend

The Denver Nuggets will be busy during their final weekend of the 2011-2012 regular season as they play back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday night. Looking to hold onto a playoff spot in the tight Western Conference, the weekend could have key implications for how the middle of the standings stack up.

On Saturday, the Nuggets travel to Arizona to take on the Phoenix Suns in a key match-up of playoff hopefuls. The Suns are currently on the outside looking in with a 32-30 record, but they're just a half-game behind the Utah Jazz for the No. 8 seed in the West.

The next day, the Nuggets will be hosting the Orlando Magic. After it was announced this week that Dwight Howard will be out for the season after having back surgery, that team becomes a far less formidable opponent. Orlando has won just four of its past ten games.
