Home cooking needed
The Cavaliers sure looked like they were on the final leg of their West Coast road trip on Monday.
They were smoked by the Denver Nuggets, 122-100, at the Pepsi Center. Let’s face it, the Cavs just don’t match up well with the Nuggets, who have now beaten them in four consecutive games.
Since the 2003 draft, Carmelo Anthony has gotten the best of LeBron James seven times in the nine meetings between the two teams.
It wasn’t billed as a seven-game road trip, but Wednesday’s game will feel like it for the Cavs. They flew home after the game and arrived in Cleveland early Tuesday morning.
The Cavs will get back on the court on Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena against the Orlando Magic. It will almost feel like another road game for the Cavs.
The only saving grace is that the Magic play at home on Tuesday and must fly to Cleveland after the game.
The Cavs finished a very respectable 3-3 on the road trip. In two of the losses, they were in the game until the fourth quarter. On Monday, no one seemed to have that pep in their step.
