Back-to-back NBA MVP Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and the rest of their Nuggets teammates will face off against some good friends on Dec. 14. That's when the Wizards will be coming to Denver. Monte Morris and Will Barton were traded to Washington in the offseason and both NBA veterans will likely receive a warm welcome at Ball Arena.

In a news release, the Denver Nuggets shared an interesting factoid about the team's 2022-23 schedule: Denver will travel more miles than any other team in the Western Conference this season at 50k total miles traveled (conference average is 45k miles).
