NBA 2013 schedule: Pacers-Nuggets highlights Monday games

USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers visit the Nuggets in a clash of styles on Monday night. Denver has won nine of 11 while Indiana has lost two straight.

There will be a clash of styles when the red-hot Denver Nuggets host the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. The game is one of seven on the evening.

The Nuggets (27-18) have won nine of 11 and have been doing it on the strength of their high-powered offense. Over those last 11 games, Denver is scoring a whopping 110.1 points per contest. The Nuggets are coming off a 121-93 beat down of the Sacramento Kings on Saturday.

The Pacers' (26-18) strength is defense, as they are giving up just 89.9 points per game on the season. However, Indiana's normally stout D has stumbled in the last two games, giving up 100 points in a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday and 114 in an overtime loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday.

The night begins with what should be a rather rough-and-tumble affair in Philadelphia between the Sixers (18-25) and Memphis Grizzlies (28-15). Both teams are a bit offensively challenged, so points are sure to be at a premium.

Elsewhere, the Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz will get together in Salt Lake City in what should be an exciting affair. Both teams are jockeying for position in the Western Conference playoff race, with the Jazz (24-20) currently holding the seventh spot and the Rockets (24-22) one game behind in eighth.
