Cavaliers Battling Back Against Denver Nuggets

The Cleveland Cavaliers are doing their best to stay out of the record book down at The Q.  Trailing by 20 - 70-50 - at halftime the Cavs have battled back to cut the lead to just 6 points - 97-91 - with just over 9 minutes to go in the 4th quarter.  Five Cavaliers have scored in double figures, led by Antawn Jamison with 17.

The Nuggets are led by Carmelo Anthony who has 27 points and 6 rebounds to go along with Arron Afflalo who has 23 points.

The Nuggets are also down a few big men.  Nene played just 9 minutes before leaving with an injury and Kenyon Martin fouled out with 8 points and 9 rebounds.

Former Nugget Joey Graham has 14 points off the bench for the Cavaliers on 6-9 shooting.
