Top Five January Games At The Pepsi Center

Plenty of action taking place at the Pepsi Center in January, including an appearance by Miami's Big Three, Kobe Bryant and the Detroit Red Wings.

The New Year is here, and the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche combine for 18 home games in January. So get out of the house and warm up to some live action at the Pepsi Center.

And if you can't decide which game to go to, listed below are the top five sporting events taking place at The Can.

5. Harlem Globetrotters - Sunday, Jan. 9
Let's be honest, who doesn't love the Harlem Globetrotters? The ball handling, the trick shots, the crowd involvement, everything adds up to an entertaining time for kids of all ages. With this being the 85th anniversary of the original Globetrotters, I suspect that we'll see some extra innovative pranks on the poor Washington Generals.

4. Vancouver Canucks Vs. Colorado Avalanche - Tuesday, Jan. 18
If the Avs are looking for a new rival, they may have found them in the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks currently lead the Avs in the Northwest division, have beaten them three times this season and won four of six last year. With the turning of the calendars, maybe the Avs can turn over a new leaf and finally get the upper hand on their new rival.

3. Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Denver Nuggets - Friday, Jan. 21
Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and the rest of the Lakers bring their back-to-back championship rings with them for the last regular-season meeting in Denver this year. With Carmelo Anthony's future up in the air, this may also be the last time fans can see a Kobe-Melo match-up in the Mile High City.

2. Detroit Red Wings vs. Avalanche - Monday, Jan. 10
The Avs true rival returns to the Pepsi Center for the last time this season. With Detroit holding a 2-1 season lead, this pivotal game might help decide home ice come playoff time. Plus, don't you want to be there to see the Wings hang their head in shame after the loss.

1. Miami Heat vs Nuggets - Thursday, Jan. 13
You may have heard that LeBron James and Chris Bosh signed with Miami this offseason to play with Dwyane Wade. Or maybe you were out of the loop when this was big news.  Either way, this is your one opportunity to see Miami's Big Three inaction at the Pepsi Center. Can't get tickets? No worries, I hear that there are great seats still available for the Nuggets next home game, versus the Cleveland Cavs. Just imagine that LBJ hadn't punched the city of Cleveland in the chest on his way out and you might enjoy yourself.
