Nuggets vs. Heat: Game time, TV schedule and more

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Nuggets continue searching for their first win when they travel to Miami on Saturday night.

The Denver Nuggets wrap up their season-opening road trip on Saturday night when visit the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena on South Beach.

The Nuggets (0-2) continued to struggles to start the season on Friday night, losing to the Orlando Magic, 102-89. Denver showed some life in the second half as they slowed down the Magic and worked their way back into the game, but the 21-point halftime deficit was too much to overcome. The Magic exposed the Nuggets in the post, as Glen Davis scored 29 points for Orlando. Danilo Gallinari had 23 points for the Nuggets but was one of just three Denver players to score in double figures.

The Heat (1-1) had their own problems on the road on Friday, as the New York Knicks ambushed the defending champs with 33 first-quarter points to build a double-digit lead. The Knicks eventually rolled on to a 104-84 victory. Miami may be a better matchup for Denver, with both teams able to utilize athletic perimeter players, but meeting LeBron James and Dwyane Wade the night after a loss will never be an easy assignment.

Tipoff for Saturday's game is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. MT at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami. The game will be televised on Altitude 2.
