According to a report by Sports Business Daily, the Denver Nuggets’ TV viewership is as bad as their attendance. Per the report, Altitude TV’s Denver Nuggets broadcasts had the 5th steepest year-over-year decline and holds the 2nd lowest viewership average of the 27 teams whose information was made available (The Utah Jazz, Memphis Grizzlies, and Toronto Raptors were not included in the report).

It’s a bit of a surprise that the Nuggets are not more of an attraction so far this season, especially given how well they’ve played over the last two months of the season. Nikola Jokic has emerged as a star and one of the leagues most exciting players. The Nuggets also play one of the fastest pace offenses in the NBA and are among the most dynamic offenses. They’ve score 100 points or more in all but four of their last 31 games and are 8-2 in their last ten home games.

The Nuggets are also currently holding on to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference but are six games below .500.
