Nuggets Vs. Cavaliers Final Score: Denver Falls 100-99 In Heartbreaker

It was a game of runs, and the Denver Nuggets just couldn't muster enough down the stretch to leave the Pepsi Center with a five-game win streak intact against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday evening.

Denver point guard Ty Lawson missed a potential game-winning layup in the waning seconds, as the blare of the final buzzer signaled an end to the six-game losing streak Cleveland brought into the night. Lawson struggled to keep command of the ball for most of the game, and finished with a game-high seven turnovers.

Sixth man Al Harrington paced the Nuggets with 22 points and eight rebounds despite being just 1-of-6 from the perimeter. Denver shot a mere 20% from behind the arc as a team in the loss, and will stay at home to play host to New Orleans on Friday.

Nuggets Vs. Cavaliers Score Update: Denver Behind 79-72 After Three Quarters

Still in search of their fifth straight win, the Denver Nuggets can't seem to find footing on their home floor tonight and trail Cleveland 76-72 after three quarters at the Pepsi Center. Also looking to avoid a seven-game skid of their own, the Cavaliers, despite being 13-23 on the road this season, are doing an admirable job of showing their resiliency away from home.

The Nuggets have turned in a woeful 4-for-16 shooting performance from the three-point line thus far, and still have not been able to stop Cleveland forward Antawn Jamison, who leads all players with 30 points on 10-of-17 shooting. Jamison has yet to turn the ball over a single time in the game.

Denver guards Arron Afflalo and Ty Lawson are the only two starters in double figures with 13 and 11 points respectively.

Nuggets Vs. Cavaliers Score Update: Denver Trails 57-55 At Half

In a first half where the Denver Nuggets held two separate eight-point leads, the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers managed to fight back to take a 57-54 advantage into the locker room.

Through two quarters of play, the Nuggets have simply not found an answer for containing Cleveland forward Antawn Jamison, who has a game-high 26 points on 8-of-13 shooting.

Al Harrington leads a balanced Denver scoring attack with 12 points, and point guard Andre Miller has also added four assists off the bench. Rookie forward Kenneth Faried, averaging 15.0 points and 9.5 rebounds in four games since the All-Star break, has just five points and four rebounds at the intermission, and has been limited to just 11 minutes due to foul trouble.

Nuggets Vs. Cavaliers Score Update: Denver Leads 27-26 After One

The Denver Nuggets entered the night riding a four-game win streak, and played host to an ice cold Cleveland Cavaliers squad at the Pepsi Center in the second game of a lengthy homestand. After one quarter of play, the Nuggets cling to a slight advantage over the visiting Cavaliers 27-26.

Denver's defense yielded seven unanswered points to close the quarter, and watched as its eight-point lead dwindled away in less than a two-minute span. As many as eight Nuggets players did manage to score a point in the opening 12 minutes however, representing a level of balance that is in stark contrast with the Cavaliers, who received 14 of their 26 points from veteran forward Antawn Jamison.

Nuggets center Nene Hilario leads the way with six points in the scoring column, while Ty Lawson and Al Harrington have each chipped in five apiece.
