The East-leading Cleveland Cavaliers welcomed the Denver Nuggets to their home floor last night, and after building an enormous 19 lead over their injury-riddled opponents early in the half, the visitors managed to fight their way back into the game, even leading by two points, 43-41, near the five-minute mark of the second quarter.

As a result, Channing Frye was not a happy camper during his halftime interview with FOX Sports Ohio’s Allie Clifton.

Frye got off to a hot start, scoring eight point within the game’s first eight minutes. The good guys got back their swagger in the second half thanks to a dominating performance by LeBron James who recorded a huge triple double with 33 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.

The game ended as everyone predicted with the Cavaliers winning, 124-91, despite missing the services of Kevin Love. But save for James’ heroics, Cleveland almost got themselves in major trouble and this tendency to doze off during some stretches is something that the team needs to leave in the regular season.
