Whatever the reason, the league spends a lot of time developing the schedule...so this is a deliberate choice.
Are there similar trends for MLB, NHL or NBA teams in Denver?

I don't know why it happens, sure... it's fun to play the conspiracy card, but play it out across the rest of the league and you'll likely find a number of teams in similar scheduling situations.

I'd happily take the final stretch at home rather than to kick off the season in that manner. Teams that are tired, beat up and playing in cold Denver in December --- I'd love it. Hell, maybe that's why they set it up like they do.

Conspiracy theories are fun though.
