The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to face the Washington Wizards in what should be the most exciting game on Friday night’s NBA card. The Cavaliers are 3-5 and have lost four games in a row.
The Wizards are 4-3 this year, but recently lost to the Phoenix Suns, 122-116. This matchup could be a possible Eastern Conference finals preview.
Last season, the Cavaliers and Wizards took the court against each other three times in the regular season. The Cavaliers won the series, 2-1. Washington was able to win the most recent contest last March, 127-115.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have a lot going on outside of basketball right now. The teams has lost four games in a row against teams they could regularly destroy, and the defense has been one of the worst in the league. Cleveland is allowing 112 points per game this season.
LeBron James is doing all he can to right the ship for the Cavaliers. James is looking like an MVP candidate again this season. Averaging 25.6 points, seven rebounds and nine assists on the year. Kevin Love is doing what he is known for. Averaging a double double with 18.4 points and 11.4 rebounds per game.
Aside from James and Love, the team looks old. The addition of Derrick Rose and Dwayne Wade has not gone well through the first eight games of the season. The former MVP (Rose) and future Hall of Fame inductee (Wade) have combined to average 22 points per game this year.
The Cavaliers have looked especially bad over their last four losses. Cleveland played the Nets, Pelicans, Knicks and Pacers in those games, allowing no less than 112 points in the losses. If the Cavaliers are going to be better, it will definitely start on the defensive side of the ball.
LeBron James is going to have to bring it every night this season. The team looks like a shell of itself from recent years.
The Washington Wizards are one of the most talked about teams in the Eastern Conference this season. The Wizards have been picked by a lot of critics to challenge for the East Crown.
The emergence of John Wall as a superstar is officially here. Now all Wall has to do is lead the Wizards to an appearance in the NBA finals.
The Wizards are 4-3 through their first seven games of the season. The Wizards John Wall has taken over as full time leader and face of the franchise. Wall is averaging 21.6 points and 9.7 assists this season. Back-court mate Bradley Beal is off to a solid start as well, averaging 22 points per game this season.
Defensively, the Wizards are needing to tighten up. Washington is allowing over 108 points per game this year. The Wizards just gave up 122 points in their most recent loss to Phoenix.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
Hopefully for Cleveland, the team can respond well to the recent criticism and loss of Big man Tristan Thompson. Thompson is averaging 4 points and 6 rebounds.
He will be out with a calf injury 3-4 weeks.
Expect the Washington Wizards to be up for this game a lot more than the Cavaliers. The Wizards crowd will play a factor in this one. Wall and Beal could be too much for the Cavaliers suspect back-court in this matchup.
