The Cavs found themselves up against a giant in Denver tonight. Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic filled the stat sheet as usual recording a triple-double 28/15/10 in route to a 121-108 win. The Cavs were without Donovan Mitchell (rest), but did see the return of Darius Garland who had missed the previous three game with thumb injury.
Garland finished with 21 points and 8 assists while Caris LeVert led the Cavaliers in scoring with 22. With the loss, the Cavs fall to 25-15 overall on the season with a road record of 7-11. Meanwhile Denver wins it's tenth straight at home improving to 26-13 overall, and remain on top of the Western Conference standings.
The Cavs continue this five game road trip with a visit to Phoenix on Sunday for a matchup with Chris Paul and the Suns.
