2013 NBA schedule: Nuggets play weekend back-to-back

The Denver Nuggets will face the Jazz and Lakers in a back-to-back over the weekend.

Following their loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves at home, the Denver Nuggets will get a chance to regroup with a weekend back-to-back starting on Saturday.

Every team in the Northwest is currently lagging far behind the Oklahoma City Thunder, but the Nuggets are the closest to them at 7.5 games behind. Past them, it's a close race with no team more than 1.5 games back of Denver. With several teams in action twice over the weekend and a couple of inter-division games, there's potential for some big shifting in the sands of the division -- at least, the sands between second and fifth place.

Here's this weekend's NBA lineup for teams around the Northwest Division:

Friday, Jan. 4

Trail Blazers at Grizzlies, 8 p.m. ET, Comcast Northwest

76ers at Thunder, 8 p.m. ET, Comcast Sports

Jazz at Suns, 9:30 p.m. ET, Root Sports

Saturday, Jan. 5

Trail Blazers at Timberwolves, 8 p.m. ET, Comcast Northwest

Jazz at Nuggets, 9 p.m. ET, Root Sports

Sunday, Jan. 6

Thunder at Raptors, 1 p.m. ET, Fox Sports Kansas

Nuggets at Lakers, 9:30 p.m. ET, Altitude 2
