Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Mike Brown praises his team's "awesome" effort against the Denver Nuggets.

Mike Brown has praised the Cleveland Cavaliers' "awesome" effort in their win over the Denver Nuggets.

Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson led the scoring for the hosts in their 98-88 victory, ending the Nuggets' seven-game winning streak.

The head coach told reporters: "That's a really good team in the other locker room. They've been playing some good basketball. We got a lot of good performances from a lot of different guys.

"To get 34 rebounds between two guys is an absolute amazing night for our bigs. They were monsters tonight. They were monsters on the pick-and-roll. They were monsters on the glass. They were monsters around the rim. That type of effort was awesome. It was awesome to watch.

"Denver is averaging 100-something points a game and they're shooting a pretty high percentage. For us to have them at the end of the game score 88 points and shoot 39% from the field is a pretty good night defensively. That's where our strength is."

The Cavaliers travel to the Atlanta Hawks tomorrow.
