Cleveland takes on Nikola Jokic and a Denver team going through it all.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Phoenix Suns Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

I, for one, am very interested to see how the Cleveland Cavaliers approach defending Nikola Jokic and all that he provides. That feels like very much the defining aspect of this game — and it’s also something the Cavs don’t really have control over.

Also of note: The team going with the Jarrett Allen-Andre Drummond pairing up front again. Denver has the personnel to exploit that, but Cleveland seems committed to leaning into the strengths of its roster as it currently exists due to injury. Buckle up.
