Denver Nuggets Western Conference Finals Schedule 2023 (Next Opponent, Game Times and Dates for Playoff Series)
By Larry Rupp
The Denver Nuggets have officially advanced to the 2023 Western Conference Finals after taking down the Phoenix Suns in a thrilling second-round series. The conference's No. 1 seed now prepares for a battle against a fellow powerhouse squad with an NBA Finals berth on the line.
Here's everything you need to know about the Nuggets' upcoming conference finals series.
When Do the Nuggets Play Next in the NBA Playoffs?
The Nuggets won't be waiting long for their next game. The Western Conference Final round of the 2023 NBA Playoffs is slated to start on Tuesday, May 16. The 1-seed Nuggets are set to face either the 6-seed Golden State Warriors or 7-seed Los Angeles Lakers for a spot in the NBA Finals.
Who Will the Nuggets Play in the Western Conference Finals?
The Nuggets will either play the 6-seed Golden State Warriors or the 7-seed Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. Game 6 of that intense series is set to take place on Friday night.
Denver's Western Conference Finals matchup will be a typical best-of-seven series that follows the 2-2-1-1-1 format. That means the better seed (Nuggets) will host Games 1 and 2, plus Games 5 and 7 if those are necessary. The worse seed (Warriors or Lakers) hosts Games 3 and 4, plus Game 6 if that is necessary.
If the Nuggets beat the Warriors/Lakers to advance, they would then head to the NBA Finals with a chance to win the Larry O'Brien trophy for the first time in franchise history.
