The 2012 NBA Summer schedule has been released by the NBA, and the Denver Nuggets have five games set for their time in Las Vegas. The 24-team league will play a total of 60 games from July 13-22, and the Nuggets have head-to-head matchups against the Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks, Charlotte Bobcats and Portland Trail Blazers. A game against the Bobcats means Denver will likely get an early look at a top-10 pick from the 2012 NBA Draft (the Bobcats hold the No. 2 overall pick).
NBA TV will televise all 60 games and Altitude will cover all available games as well. Specific broadcast information for both outlets will be released at later dates. Here is a look at the Nuggets' schedule, via Nuggets.com:
|July 14||Golden State||COX Pavilion||4:00 p.m.|
|July 15||Dallas||COX Pavilion||4:00 p.m.|
|July 17||New York||COX Pavilion||2:00 p.m.|
