    New Orleans Hornets v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    If the Cleveland Cavaliers’ shockingly competitive start seems like a lifetime ago, it’s probably because the Cavs have been killed about a dozen times since their .500 days.

    The Chicago Bulls were neither deep enough nor talented enough to pose much of a threat to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they competed.
