    Nuggets PG Jameer Nelson scores 12 points in preseason win

    Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson recorded 12 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and dropped two dimes in Tuesday's preseason win over the Mavericks.As anticipated, the Nuggets announced earlier in the week that Emmanuel Mudiay would serve as the team's starting point guard, leaving Nelson to serve in a backup role this season while functioning as a veteran mentor for the rookie. Nelson will likely make a push for around 20 minutes a night early in the season, but if Mudiay thrives to the extent the Nuggets believe he can, Nelson figures to see his role diminish as the weeks and months pass.
