Nuggets have eyes open as Cavs visit

The Denver Nuggets shook off a blowout loss on Tuesday to rout the Chicago Bulls on Thursday. Now they will try to end their homestand Saturday with a win over the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers.

Denver routed the Bulls and got a day off to rest before the last of their four-game set at Pepsi Center. The Nuggets have a chance to finish 3-1 if they can beat a Cavaliers team coming off a 115-99 loss at Utah on Friday night.

The Nuggets (30-14) suffered bruised egos when the Warriors came in and beat them by 31 to take over the top spot in the Western Conference. The humbling game could have carried over to Thursday, but Denver bounced back against Chicago.
