On Saturday, the hot Cavaliers ran into a team that was even hotter, as the high-powered Nuggets used eight men in double-figures to hand the Wine and Gold the 111-103 loss at The Q – snapping Cleveland’s win streak at three. The first half featured eight ties and six lead changes, but the Nuggets – who came in winners of eight straight – went on a 6-0 run right before intermission. The Cavaliers cut Denver’s lead to four points early in the third quarter, but couldn’t get close than that the rest of the way. The Nuggets eventually extended their lead to two touchdowns before the Wine and Gold got to within six late in the affair.
