Denver Nuggets – Cleveland Cavaliers – NBA actioan is back in Denver. Payback time for LeBron and his team after Nuggets win in Cleveland.
- The Denver Nuggets is back at home after they lose last night game in Dallas, 118-107 . Gary Harris has reached at least 23 points in five out of his last six games, increasing his season average to 17.9 points per game. This trio Harris – Jokic – Murray have a good season and they target the playoff. enver is red-hot offensively, and they are currently averaging 108.7 points, good for eighth in the NBA. They are allowing 107.5 points, positioning them 20th overall. They all played more than 30 minutes in last night lose so i don’t see Nuggets’ offence very fresh.
- Cleveland Cavaliers got back in the win column with a solid 112-90 home win over the Pistons on Monday night. Cavs are 5th in the league in scoring this season with 110 points per game. Home team are below average defensively, ranking tied for 27th in scoring defense by allowing 109.9 points per game. This problem in defence is more than fixed, they make an huge defence game in last game and from now they will have the defence strong team point. George Hill, Rodney Hood (16.7 points) and Larry Nance Jr. are some of the rotation guys that can step up and have a big game. Jeff Green (back) will not play against Pistons on Monday. Tristan Thompson will miss “multiple games” and it this situation without Tristan, Green and Love we can see Larry Nance Jr. start at center.
- Cleveland was in beast mode in defence against Denver and it’s look like they try to figure out in this season. All players looks very motivated and all players start to play for the team. With Denver Nuggets in back-to back game and best players played more than 30 minutes last night in Dallas, Cleveland can win this with another good defence game. My prediction for Denver Nuggets – Cleveland Cavaliers is below.
Prediction: Denver Nuggets under 118.5 points, 1.65 odds.
