Cleveland at Denver
The visitors, Cle are not in a great shape. Their loss against Por at 18 points says a lot about their game. To be favorite in a game against a poor team like Por , and to lose at 18 points , doesn t give you a lot of conidence.
The Cavaliers (23-15) own the best record in the East, but have dropped three of four and are 2-3 on their current seven-game road trip. Cleveland shot just 35 percent and had a season-low seven assists against the Trail Blazers.James, who is averaging 26.8 points per game, had 23 and shot just 8-of-21 from the floor in Cleveland’s 94-76 loss to Portland this week.
Denver is waitting for Carmelo s return on monday. Iverson had 32 points against the Trail Blazers ,in their last game ,and is averaging 27.3 in 12 games with the Nuggets. However, Denver is just 4-8 since acquiring him, likely due in part to the absence of Carmelo Anthony, who leads the NBA with 31.6 points per game. The new guard , Blake , who signed for Denver on jan 11th , had 13 points in almost 29 minutes in his Nuggets debut last Friday, a 90-86 loss to Houston. He then scored a career-high 25 points in just over 36 minutes in Sunday’s 109-93 victory at Portland.
I really think that the hosts have a decent shot for tonight s game , so today s pick goes to :
