2008-09 Game 8: Denver Nuggets at Cleveland Cavaliers Game Thread

New, comments

I apologize, but due to staying up late to get the segment on the Nuggets defense done and a very busy day at work I have not had time to throw together a decent preview for the Cleveland game tonight.

Even so, you just need to know two things. LeBron James is the most unstoppable force in basketball and for some reason the Nuggets have pretty much had their way with the Cavilers since Melo and LeBron came into the league.

On a side note I a couple of games ago I predicted that J.R. Smith would pull out of his shooting slump in Cleveland. My reasoning is Cleveland was where he kicked off his great run over the last couple of months of the season last year when he made six threes to sink the Cavs.

Hopefully J.R. can get himself going again.
