Nuggets Schedule 2012: Denver To Visit Dwight Howard, Magic

With the Denver Nuggets in the thick of a packed Western Conference playoff race, every game is important, and after two straight against a few of the worst teams in the NBA, George Karl's crew will square off with one of the East's best teams in their only game this weekend.

Sunday, April 1, at Orlando Magic (4:00 p.m MT, NBATV)

This will be the first meeting between the Nuggets and Magic (Orlando will visit the Mile High City on April 22) and Denver's young revamped frontcourt will get its toughest test of the year vs. Dwight Howard and the sharpshooting Ryan Anderson. New Nugget JeVale McGee in particular has had a rough time vs. the Magic this season, scoring 12 points on 5-15 shooting and grabbing only ten rebounds in two games against Orlando while he was a part of the Washington Wizards.
