Wednesday, February 10, the Cleveland Cavaliers travel to play the Denver Nuggets as the teams meet for the first time in the 2020-21 campaign.
Last season, the squads played twice with Denver winning both contests. The Nuggets hold the all-time record having won 49 matches of the 90 played.
After getting out to an 8-7 season start the Cavaliers have experienced a tough run losing six of their last eight games.
The most recent occurring in Phoenix to run their current losing streak to four games in a row. Cleveland battled and pushed the Suns right to the brink but couldn’t close in clutch time.
The Cavaliers are on a five-game road trip that takes them to Portland, LA, and Golden State after this match.
In the loss to the Suns, all five Cavaliers starters reached double-figures plus Taurean Prince (13).
Andre Drummond produced a double-double of 15 points and 14 rebounds while Collin Sexton led the scoring with 23 points.
Darius Garland (17) Jarrett Allen (14) and Isaac Okoro (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Larry Nance missed the game after suffering a fractured hand in the Bucks match Sunday and will miss the next six weeks. Kevin Love (calf) has begun ramping up his workouts but has yet to play this season.
Likewise, Matthew Dellavedova (concussion) remains out with no timetable for return.
Nikola Jokic is putting on a display worthy of a Most Valuable Player award but his team isn’t winning enough to make that a serious consideration.
Although the Nuggets managed to end the Jazz 11-game win streak they’ve surrounded that with four losses amid injuries and inconsistency particularly on the defensive end.
Jokic followed up a career-high 50 point effort versus the Kings with a 35-point effort in the loss to the Bucks adding 12 rebounds and six assists.
Jamal Murray returned from missing the prior game nursing a myriad of ailments but managed only 11 points. Will Barton (24), Paull Millsap (14), and Monte Morris (12) were the other double-figure scorers.
Facundo Campazzo (right knee) is questionable for Wednesday. Gary Harris (left adductor strain) and PJ Dozier (hamstring) are both out versus the Cavaliers.
Greg Whittington had knee surgery that will keep him off the court for four to six weeks.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Cavaliers are 6-4 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
- The Cavaliers are 4-5-1 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 6-4 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Cavaliers have struggled to put points on the board this season ranking dead last in offense. While Andre Drummond and Jarrett Allen are on hand to address Nikola Jokic they’ll be hard-pressed to stop him.
On the opposite side of the equation without Harris, the Nuggets will be tasked with limiting the young Cavaliers backcourt from scoring.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets ATS
While I’d agree the Cavaliers have improved with the addition of Allen and their roster consistency is allowing for a more competitive effort on a nightly basis they still have issues on the road where they are 3-6.
Coupled with the Nuggets needing to get back on track, it should equate to an easy Nuggets victory.
