Mile High beatdown

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

The LeBron James-Carmelo Anthony duel fizzled, as always, as the Cavs hammered the Nuggets, 105-88, on Friday in the Pepsi Center.

It's really not fair to compare the two players. James is far superior in almost every facet of his game. Normally, Melo is a much better shooter, but one can't even say that this year.

On Friday, James outscored Anthony, 33-13. James was 13 of 20 from the field, while Melo was 5 of 14. James outrebounded him, 10-2, and had eight assists to one for Anthony.

For the first time in James' career, the Cavs swept the Denver Nuggets in a season.

The Cavs will gun for the sweep on the three-game West Coast road trip on Sunday in Oklahoma City.
