Nuggets cruise past Cavs 126-113

DENVER (AP) LeBron James's forgettable night included some statistical oddities like going minus-30 in 34 minutes and being the only player on either team to miss a free throw.

In East-leading Cleveland's stunningly thorough 126-113 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, James saw his Cavaliers get outscored 70-30 in the paint.

And the most painful of those points had to be from Nikola Jokic, who backed down James in the paint in a pivotal third-quarter possession, fending off plenty of contact for a hook shot that rocked the Pepsi Center.
