There has been a chink in the Cavs’ armor as of late and while they are coming off a win they have lost 3 of their last 5 games. Their last loss was to a Wizards’ team that is fighting just to stay in the playoff race.
The Cavs are in the top spot in the Eastern Conference, but they now only have a 2 game lead over the Toronto Raptors, who they recently lost to. The Wizards are currently on the outside looking in, but they only trail the 8th place Pistons by ? game.
In their last games the Cavs beat the Indiana Pacers 100-96 and the Wizards beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-98.
The Wizards have been hit hard by injuries this season, but they have regrouped and have won 4 straight games.
Their offense ranks a legit 9th in the league in scoring, but their defense has been their weakness this season only ranking 23rd in opponents’ points allowed.
In their recent home win over the Cavs the Wizards played solid D holding Cleveland to a FG% of only 40%, but they did not have to face LeBron James, who did not play in the game.
For the Wizards to beat the Cavs again they will need a solid game from the backcourt duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal, who are Washington’s 2 leading scorers.
The Wizards are a .500 team on the road this season at 16-16.
No need to push the panic button for the Cavs, as while they have lost 2 of their last 3 games they were both on the road and one was without King James. Cleveland is 25-5 in their house this season and with losing recently to the Wizards you can bet they will be itching for some payback in their house.
Cleveland ranks 10th in the league in scoring and 3rd in opponents’ points allowed. James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love are still a legit big 3 and they will be out to show that in this ESPN primetime game.
James went for 33 points in the Cavs last game and he has shot at least 50% from the field in his last 3 games.
