Cavaliers vs Nuggets. The game of the night comes right here as two high-intensity teams square off in Denver. Both teams are top of the league in scoring and pace, so there is going to be a ton of scoring. This is the game to stack. Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are definitely start players especially with the other games on the slate expected to be low-scoring. Kyrie Irving takes on a Nuggets defense that is the second worst team in the NBA at defending opposing point guards. Therefore, we see Kyrie Irving the best player on the entire slate. Furthermore, he should be in for a field day matched up against Jameer Nelson, who does not stand a chance against the speedy Kyrie.
This game is going to stay very close, and the Nuggets are looking to bounce back from two losses to the Rockets. Both of those games ended in the final seconds with the same result. The Cavaliers on the other hand are attempting to keep the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference locked up for the playoffs. Stack this game if possible, because this one will be a high-paced thriller.
Bold Prediction– Will Barton hits a game winning buzzer beater three as the shot clock expires.
