LeBron James And The Cleveland Cavaliers Are Your Lock Of The Night
To say the Lock of the Night series got off to a rocky start is an understatement, like saying the Hindenburg’s finally voyage could have gone more smoothly. But, hey, this isn’t free-throw shooting. You rubes can’t expect me to shoot 90 percent. Aiming for a 55-percent clip is much more reasonable.
And the great part of hypothetical sports wagering is that there will always be another opportunity to hypothetically wager.
So let’s rebound.
Tonight’s Lock of the Night is:
Cleveland Cavaliers (-5) over DENVER NUGGETS
Four games in to the season, people are freaking out about the Cavaliers 1-3 record. So much so that LeBron James felt it necessary to tell people to R-E-L-A-X. The last two Cavs’ losses have been accompanied by a palpable lack of interest. James is best when his back is against the wall and motivation shouldn’t be a problem tonight in Denver. The Nuggets are allowing 114.3 points a game over their last three contests, including 131 to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday.
The Cavs’ turnaround starts tonight. That sound you’ll hear tomorrow is hoards of people asking to get back on the bandwagon.
All-Time Locks: 0-1
