By the end of the preseason, the Denver Nuggets hope to be in midseason form.
With a road-heavy schedule that includes 17 of 23 games away from Pepsi Center, the Nuggets don’t have the luxury of experimentation once the regular season tips off Halloween night in Philadelphia.
“We have seven preseason games,” Denver coach George Karl said. “I feel we have to be ahead of everybody else because our schedule is very difficult early on. We have to have confidence in knowing who we’re going to play before the 20 games of experiments.”
