On Wednesday March 7the Cleveland Cavaliers arrive at the Pepsi Center to face their host the Nuggets. In their last game the Cavaliers stopped a two game losing streak when they trounced the Detroit Pistons.
The Nuggets struggled on the road all season, but brought a four-game road winning streak (their longest since 2013) into Dallas.
Last season the teams split the season series and the Nuggets took the initial game this season.
The Nuggets hold the all-time record having bested the Cavaliers in 47 of their 85 matches.
From the beginning the most positive part of the trade deadline was Larry Nance because he offered three of the specific assets Cleveland needed most: defense, rebounding and athleticism.
With news Tristan Thompson (sprained ankle) will likely miss two weeks his presence becomes even more valuable. Nance wasted little time stepping up to fill Thompson’s shoes registering a double-double of 22 points and 15 rebounds vs. Detroit.
Five other Cavaliers scored in double digits in the defeat of Detroit including LeBron James (31), Rodney Hood (13), Cedi Osman (12), Jordan Clarkson (11) and Kyle Korver (11).
Still, this was the Pistons who are 2-8 in their last 10. In other words the Cavaliers still need to fix their defensive issues and show consistency before anyone should jump on the title bandwagon.
Kevin Love remains out likely until mid March and Jeff Green (back spasms) is uncertain.
Heading into the game at Dallas the Nuggets have won nine of their last 11 games. One of those victories came vs. the Cavaliers in Cleveland.
Despite arriving having played the night prior and with a precarious road record the Nuggets dictated the pace and game tempo from the tip.
Although this time the match versus the Cavaliers is in Denver, once again the Nuggets will be playing on a back to back set with Cleveland rested.
Gary Harris leads Denver in points (17.9), field goal percent (48.8%) and steals (1.9) while Nikola Jokic leads in assists (6.0) and rebounds (10.5).
Paul Millsap is also back in the mix to help improve Denver’s defense. Moreover, Head Coach Mike Malone has tons of depth to utilize and x-factors like Jamal Murray, Wilson Chandler and Will Barton to pull from depending on matchups.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Cavaliers are 6-4 in the teams last 10 head to head contests
- Nuggets are 4-5-1 ATS in last 10 head to head matchups.
