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