A make-or-break season for the Denver Nuggets will begin Oct. 17 against the Los Angeles Clippers on the road, conclude April 10 against the Minnesota Timberwolves at home and feature 14 nationally televised games.

The Nuggets, who have finished ninth in the Western Conference two seasons in a row, are seeking to break a five-year playoff drought.

Getting off to a good start will be crucial. Ten of the Nuggets’ first 15 games are at home. They face the Phoenix Suns in their first game of the season at Pepsi Center on Oct. 20 then follow that up by hosting the Golden State Warriors on Oct. 21 and the Sacramento Kings on Oct. 23.

Christian Clark is an Arlington, Texas, native who covers the Denver Nuggets for BSN Denver. Education: I graduated from the Missouri School of Journalism in December 2014 with an emphasis in print and digital news. Career: My work has been featured in the Fort Worth-Star Telegram, The Oklahoman and Columbia Missourian, and online at TexasFootball.com and Denverite.com. I came aboard at BSN Denver in November. Most memorable sports moment: Game 2 of the 2011 NBA Finals. The finest sports book I’ve ever read: Friday Night Lights by Buzz Bissinger. One sports movie I can’t live without: Tin Cup, do not @ me Most memorable experience as a reporter: Covering the Missouri football team’s boycott in 2015. It led to University of Missouri system president Tim Wolfe’s resignation and had so many other ripple effects. The sport that started it all: Basketball. My sports-watching memories kick in with those early-2000s Dallas Mavericks teams. They had bad hair and scored a lot of points. Shout-out to Nellie Ball.
