The Denver Nuggets have the San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers on the schedule this week.

Riding a two-game winning streak, the Denver Nuggets host the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday before heading to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers on Thursday. San Antonio is coming off a big win against the Boston Celtics, and Portland is riding a three-game streak after a buzzer-beating shot by Damian Lillard gave them a win against the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday.

Monday is full of intriguing matchups. Jeremy Lin returns to the Big Apple with the Houston Rockets to face the Knicks, and the Spurs head to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder for bragging rights in the Western Conference.

On Tuesday the Celtics and Bulls meet in an Eastern Conference showdown.

The premiere matchup on Wednesday is Round 3 of the Battle of the Boroughs, which airs in the early time slot on ESPN. Thursday's games on TNT include the Thunder going against the Minnesota Timberwolves followed by the Miami Heat visiting the Dallas Mavericks.
