Denver Nuggets (3-7) 106 Cleveland Cavaliers (5-4) 97 [Box Score] What a dull game. The Cavaliers felt like they were sleepwalking through most of this game. The offense was stagnant and lethargic, and when they got good looks, they were missing the shots. The defense is still atrocious, as the Cavaliers let Denver keep them

Wow. I certainly didn’t expect to see the Cavaliers bring this type of effort against the Hawks at home on the second night of a back-to-back where they looked atrocious on defense.
