The Cavaliers ended their four-game road-trip on a good note Tuesday night, beating the Nuggets 93-87 in Denver.
It was the second night of a back-to-back, as point guard Kyrie Irving received the night off to rest.
The Cavs played from in front all night and cruised through the first half, leading 53-42 at halftime.
It was a welcome change after three games, in which Cleveland faced some difficulties, losing at Golden State, getting embarrassed in Portland, and barely squeaking out a win at Phoenix.
LeBron James bounced back from a few rough performances, scoring a game-high 34 points en route to the 93-87 victory.
Coming into the game, LeBron had scored just 26 points in the previous two games combined. He turns 31 at midnight Wednesday.
Iman Shumpert had a big night off the bench, scoring 16 points. J.R. Smith scored 11 points against his former team and Kevin Love hauled in 14 rebounds.
Cleveland improves to 21-9 with the win, and is now 8-8 on the road.
The Cavs have three nights off now, as they return home to take on the Orlando Magic Saturday night.
