OPENING TIP The Nuggets are outscoring opponents by 10 points at home, the most in the NBA. Thats bad news for the Cavaliers, who could be without Kyrie Irving, who has the flu and missed todays shootaround. Either way, the Cavs have won two of their last four and are coming off an impressive home win over the Hawks. The Nuggets have won three straight, and seven of 10, and hold the eighth seed in the West. Not bad for a team that leads the league in road games (24). Venue: Pepsi Center, Denver. TVRadio: 8:30 p.m. FOX Sports OhioWTAM All-Time Series: Nuggets lead, 42-32. PROJECTED STARTERS CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (9-28) C Tyler Zeller PF Tristan Thompson SF Alonzo Gee SG CJ Miles PG Kyrie Irving DENVER NUGGETS (21-16) C Kosta Koufos PF Kenneth Faired SF Danilo Gallinari SG Andre Iguodala PG Ty Lawson Pregame notes: Koufous, a Canton GlenOak and Ohio State product, is having his best NBA season with 7.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and tons of hustle. It may not seem like it, but Zeller has his work cut out for him. Its true that the Nuggets lead the league in road games, but by the end of this five-game trip, the Cavs will be the leagues new leader with 26. Miles (back spasms) and Daniel Gibson (concussion) are expected to be cleared to play. If Miles goes, Dion Waiters will return to his role off the bench.
