How to Watch Cleveland Cavaliers at Denver Nuggets: Live Stream, TV Channel, Start Time

The Cavaliers kick off a five-game road trip against one of the top teams in the Western Conference in the Nuggets.

The Nuggets (2–0) have held both of their opponents so far under 100 points. They will look to do the same Monday when they host in the Cavaliers (1–2).

These Nuggets are without Jamal Murray, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in April, but they still remain focused to start the season.

Reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic put on a monster performance in Denver's 102–96 win against the Spurs, picking up where he left off last season. He had 32 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists in the victory.

Last season, the Nuggets gave up under 100 points 15 times, and the first time did not come until their 10th game of the season against the Knicks. While their current defensive pace is probably unsustainable, their improvement on defense has been noticeable.

The Nuggets are causing 34.9% more turnovers this season, thanks to steals, deflections and strong overall team defense. The play of Jokic on the defensive end (88.0 defensive rating) is overshadowed by his offensive impact, but he is anchoring this defense and is a major part of its success.

The Cavaliers match up well inside with Jarrett Allen, rookie Evan Mobley and Kevin Love. They also do not turn the ball over at a high rate (13.3 per game, seventh in the league) with Ricky Rubio leading the offense.

Still, it will be a big challenge for the Cavaliers to pull off the early-season upset, especially on the road in Denver.

Regional restrictions may apply.
