The reason why I say this is Zydrunas Ilgauskas may be the slowest center in the league and Drew Gooden isn’t exactly a speedster either. Both men play more than 25 minutes a game and do not like to get into a marathon. Cleveland as a team is averaging just a shade over 92 points per game and if LeBron James can be held to his average while playing an up-tempo game it has been proven that Cleveland struggles. Of the 15 games that the Cavs have lost this year, seven of those losses have been to teams that score more than 100 points in the contest. Denver, who almost routinely hit’s the century mark in scoring, needs to run, run, run like an antelope out of control.
It’s a toss up whether you watch tonight’s game on Altitude Sports and Entertainment or ESPN, but one way or another, the tip is set to be thrown at around seven o’clock. Go Nuggets!
