Denver Nuggets Final Score: Nuggets Easily Handle NBA's Worst Cavaliers, 127-99

The Denver Nuggets had little trouble defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers, 127-99, on Saturday night. The Cavaliers had only eight players ready for tonight and were down to seven players after only five minutes. Point guard Mo Williams left the game due to injury, which allowed Ramon Sessions to score 21 points and distribute nine assists.

The Nuggets continued their recent offensive explosion, scoring 80 points at halftime. And it's a good game for the Nuggets when even Renaldo Balkman makes an appearance (three points, two assists in five minutes). Four of the Nuggets five starters scored in double digits: Carmelo Anthony (12), Arron Afflalo (21), Chauncey Billups (21) and Nene (22). Anthony also grabbed nine boards, and Billups doled out eight assists. Shelden Williams, though he only had two points, pulled down 11 rebounds.

Al Harrington and J.R. Smith combined for 29 points off the bench. Ty Lawson finished the night with five points and five assists before leaving with a sprained left ankle. His status is unknown right now.

The Nuggets (23-16) have averaged 129.67 points during this three-game win streak. They face the San Antonio Spurs tomorrow in a Sunday night game televised on ESPN.
