To say the Cleveland Cavaliers have not fared well against the Dallas Mavericks in recent years might be an understatement. The Mavericks have swept the last three season series against the Cavaliers, winning those six games by an average margin of 21.2 points. The last four contests have been especially lopsided, with Dallas winning by an average of 27.3 points.
The Denver Nuggets have lost six straight games. In addition, the Nuggets are 2-6 away from the Mile High City. Overall, it's not a great time for them to visit the Miami Heat, who are 6-2 in their past eight games.
They need help along the front line with Brook Lopez still out.
