As part of one of the NBA matches, the Denver Nuggets and the Cleveland Cavaliers will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.

Denver Nuggets

With his speech on Friday, Nikola Jokic deserved only the most flattering words in his address. The Serbian center almost single-handedly defeated San Antonio, missing only 5 times in 34 minutes of playing time. Green looked great, who scored 10 points in the team's piggy bank. It is worth noting that the nuggets managed to deal with the finalist of last season during the first week of the championship, not allowing him to come up with anything in the attack. The future opponent plays surprisingly well in such matches and sets the heat on his top rivals.

Cleveland Cavaliers

It is unlikely that the guest team is claiming anything this season. The "Horsemen" defeated "Atlanta" on their parquet, but only due to the uncertainty of their opponent. A lot will depend on how Markkanen and Allen play against Nikola Jokic. The long rotation of the guests does not add to the chances of winning, because only Sexton and Osman spent less than half an hour on the floor in the last meeting. The rest of the players had to sweat a lot. In the East, Cleveland is 11th, and performs, frankly, unevenly.

Statistics and figures:

  • Denver is the favorite of the meeting;
  • Cavs have 2 wins in 5 games;
  • "Denver" won in 3 previous meetings;
  • The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 120:103 in favor of the Nuggets.

Forecast

There is an assumption that this meeting will not be productive. Cleveland needs to win, and therefore the team will not fly forward headlong, knowing that it can be punished for this, the drying from the Cavs will work, and the basic betting total will not be broken.
