The Denver Nuggets enter the 2023-24 NBA season in uncharted territory. The Nuggets won their first NBA Title last season, defeating the Miami Heat 94-89 in Game Five of the best-of-seven series to claim the crown. The Nuggets won the title in their 47th year in the NBA, and hopes are high that they can repeat this season, with NBA Finals MVP Nicola Jokic expected to have another monster season.
The Nuggets next home game is on Monday, October 30, as they take on the Utah Jazz. Other games to check out before Christmas include a pair of games against the Dallas Mavericks on November 3 and December 18, a matchup with the San Antonio Spurs on November 26, and a matchup on Christmas Day against the Golden State Warriors. Prices for these games vary wildly. The Jazz game has Upper Balcony tickets for less than $20. If you want to spend Christmas with the Nuggets, that will set you back close to $200 for the cheapest seats!
Can Jokic remain dominant?
Jokic was a monster last season. While he had support from Jamaal Murray (especially in the playoffs) and the now-departed Bruce Brown, Jokic is the current player blessed with the mythical title of ‘best basketball player in the world’. It is easy to see why, too, with Jokic putting up a triple-double in the season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers as he went for 29 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists. If Jokic plays at anything like the level he has for the past few seasons, then the Nuggets will be the team to beat in the playoffs next spring.
