The Nuggets will be taking on the Detroit Pistons in their home opener, and fans can expect them to wear Detroit down with the same frenetic, run-and-gun style of offense that made them the highest-scoring team in the NBA last year. The young lineup is loaded with potential: Ty Lawson and Danilo Gallinari are on the verge of becoming stars in their own right, while Javale McGee will be looking to live up to the $44 million that Denver showered on him in July. But the NBA is a superstar-driven league, and come game time, Iguodala will get most of the attention.
The first home game of the season tips off at 7 p.m. tonight at the Pepsi Center, 1000 Chopper Circle. Tickets start at $22, but will most likely only be available for much more on after-market websites; for more information, go to www.nba.com/nuggets.
