The Cavaliers lost another game by 16 points on Friday night in Utah. None of the starters had any more than two assists and only Cameron Payne and Matthew Dellavedova off the bench had three.
Collin Sexton and Ante Zizic led the team with 15 points each. Cleveland has lost four of its five games on the current West Coast trip, which finishes with this game, in Denver, on the second night of a back-to-back.
Tristan Thompson missed the game on Friday and Larry Nance Jr. remains out for a few more weeks. Cleveland already had the worst defense in the NBA and now it’s missing perhaps its two best defenders.
Then there’s Kevin Love, who I’m sure is just itching to get back and suit up for these Cavs. He says he’s still a few weeks away from returning.
So while the Cavaliers played, got crushed again and then got on a plane to travel, Denver has been resting at home after thrashing the Bulls by 30 points on Thursday night.
Denver carved up Chicago, recording 34 assists to just seven turnovers, as a team. Nikola Jokic didn’t shoot well but dished out a game-high 11 of those assists and came two rebounds shy of a triple-double in an abbreviated night in which he played just 25 minutes.
Gary Harris played for the first time in six games and scored 14 points in 18 minutes off the bench. He’s struggled through injuries for the last two months but if he’s right down the stretch, Denver will get the lift it needs to carry this thing through to the end.
The Nuggets only look up at the Warriors in the Western Conference standings and look like the next in what has been a long line of challengers over the years. Does Mike Malone have enough to give Golden State a run?
I really don’t think so.
