2012 NBA schedule: Nuggets to wrap up road trip with Memphis, Minnesota

The Denver Nuggets will square off with two Western Conference playoff contenders this week in both Memphis and Minnesota.

Trying desperately to halt a three-game losing streak, George Karl's Denver Nuggets will prepare for a busy week ahead with a number of games crammed into a small window.

The Nuggets will kick off the week on Monday evening with a dangerous road game against one of the best teams in the NBA in the Memphis Grizzlies. The red-hot Grizzlies have reeled off eight straight wins after dropping their opener to the Los Angeles Clippers on Oct. 31, and currently cling to a 1/2 game lead on the San Antonio Spurs in the Southwest Division.

Still only 3-1/2 games behind Oklahoma City for first place in the Northwest Division themselves, the Nuggets will then travel to Minnesota for a game with the Timberwolves two days later after facing the Grizzlies. The two teams have yet to take the court for their first of four meetings in 2012-13, but the Rockets did manage to snatch three wins in four attempts last season over Minnesota.
