Denver is 32-18 SU and 30-20 ATS; it's coming off a 128-96 beatdown of Chicago as a 6 point fav on the 7th.
Kenneth Faried finished with 21 points and 12 boards.
Wilson Chandler had 24 points, connecting on all five of his 3-point shots.
''Wilson and Kenneth, what an incredible performance,'' Denver coach George Karl assessed afterwards. ''That's 45 points on 19 shots. I'll take that every night.''
Note that Denver is 10-7 ATS this year vs. teams with losing records.
Cleveland is 16-34 SU and is coming off a 119-108 win over Orlando last night.
Kyrie Irving had 24 points; Marreese Speights had 18; Tristan Thompson chipped in 16.
Note though that Cleveland is just 8-13 ATS in front of the home town crowd this year.
No need to overanalyse this selection; Cleveland comes into this game with "heavy legs", and the streaking Nuggets take full advantage, pulling away down the stretch for the comfortable ATS cover!
