Denver Nuggets To Play Preseason Game On Las Vegas Strip

The Denver Nuggets will be headed to Las Vegas, Nevada, to play a game on the famous Vegas strip against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers team website announced the game Monday afternoon, sending grateful shock waves across the basketball and buffet-loving community. The two teams will square off at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino on October 6, 2012, for the opening game of the preseason. Tickets run from $25 to $150 and go on sale at the end of June.

The two teams -- the Clippers at 40-26 and the Nuggets at 38-28 -- were the 5th and 6th seeds respectively in the 2012 NBA Playoffs. While the Clippers advanced to the Western Conference Semifinals before getting swept 4-0 by the San Antonio Spurs, the Nuggets could not escape the first round, losing 4-3 to the Los Angeles Lakers.
