What you need to know about the Nuggets

Denver didn't have too much breathing room in their game with the San Antonio Spurs this past Friday, but they still walked away with a 102-96 victory. Reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic was once again dominant, dropping a double-double with 32 points and 16 rebounds in addition to seven assists.

Jokic is off to a fast start again in 2021-22, averaging 29.5 points, 14.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game. The Nuggets have been strong defensively early on this season holding both of their opponents (the Spurs and Suns) under 100 points. Thanks in large part to the altitude at Ball Arena in Denver, the Nuggets have one of the best home court advantages in the league.   

What you need to know about the Cavaliers

Cleveland is also coming off a win, even though it wasn't a dominant performance. The Cavaliers beat the Atlanta Hawks 101-95 this past Saturday. Cleveland can attribute much of their success to point guard Ricky Rubio, who had 23 points and eight assists along with six boards, and center Evan Mobley, who posted a double-double on 17 points and 11 boards along with four blocks.

The Cavs are allowing 116.7 and scoring 111.3 points per game. Cleveland has lost four of its last six games against Denver dating back to Nov. 1, 2018.
