NBA preseason schedule: Nuggets host Spurs Monday

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The Nuggets face the defending Western Conference champs in one of four games on the day.

The San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets will do battle in Denver on Monday as part of a four-game NBA preseason slate.

San Antonio will be playing in the second of a back-to-back, having lost to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. Tim Duncan had 12 points in the defeat as the Spurs dropped to 1-1 in the preseason.

Denver has not played in nearly a week, with their last game coming against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday in Canada. The Nuggets narrowly lost that game, with two Robert Sacre free throws in the final minute pushing the Lakers ahead.

Monday's preseason action tips off in Philadelphia, where the 76ers will host the new-look Brooklyn Nets. Deron Williams remains out with an ankle injury, so Shaun Livingston will likely get the start again at point guard.

Next on the docket is a game between the rebuilding Orlando Magic and the Dallas Mavericks. The Magic are seeking their first preseason victory.

The final game of the night is out on the west coast, where the Sacramento Kings will take on the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers were dominant in a win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday.

Here's the full schedule (all times Eastern):

Brooklyn Nets at Philadelphia 76ers, 7 p.m.

Orlando Magic at Dallas Mavericks, 8:30 p.m.

San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets, 9 p.m., NBA TV

Los Angeles Clippers at Sacramento Kings, 10 p.m.
