Denver Nuggets hold pep rally ahead of first round of NBA playoffs

DENVER — The Denver Nuggets held a pep rally at McGregor Square Wednesday afternoon to promote Nuggets Nation ahead of the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Hundreds of fans were treated to live music, dance performances and free merchandise.

“I hope we can bring another one back to town,” said Randy Garcia, a Nuggets fan who brought his young son, King, to meet Nuggets mascot Rocky.

Garcia and the Nuggets faithful are looking forward to this year’s playoffs.

The Nuggets enter the playoffs as the 2 seed in the Western Conference and are expected to face the Los Angeles Lakers once again.

“The Lakers are swept again, twice in a row,” said Chris Cooey, a Nuggets fan.

The gathering included live performances from Paws The Music, Skyline Drumline and the Denver Nuggets Dancers. The first 500 fans at the rally received free Nuggets t-shirts.

The Lakers are coming off a victory against the New Orleans Pelicans in a play-in game. The Lakers haven’t beaten the Nuggets since 2022 and were swept in the Western Conference Finals last year. In 2024, the Nuggets won all three games against the Lakers.

The Nuggets will have home-court advantage for the series. The first game will be played Saturday at Ball Arena, with tipoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. MST. You can watch a special edition of Denver7 News at 5 p.m. before the game and stay for highlights and other news after the game.
