Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers are reported on the media right now for being a dysfunctional team and for other unlikely reasons. Going to the Nuggets game, they are going to have a hard time containing Jokic in Tristan Thompson gets into foul trouble. Recently, the Cavs traded for Dante Exum and it has not panned out for the newly acquired player. Cavs are going to rely heavily on Collin Sexton to lead the way with Darius Garland backing him up. It will be a long night for the Cavs but if they limit the production of the players around Jokic, they may get into the striking distance to pull an upset.

Denver Nuggets Betting

Nikola Jockic came up with the biggest basket of the match as they hold on to a 1-point lead over the Mavericks in the final seconds of the game. Dallas failed to hoist up the final basket as the Nuggets escaped with a win on the road. Jokic had 33 points, seven assists and six rebounds. He got help from Jerami Grant with 15 points, five rebounds and two assists. Jamaal Murray had 14 points, five assists and three rebounds while Malik Beasley and Mason Plumlee each had 10 points from the bench. This is back-to-back wins already for the Nuggets and they have the Cavs next who are marred with intrigues with the media recently.
