The Cleveland Cavaliers will be visiting the Washington Wizards on Friday, December 3rd. The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from the Capital One Arena.
Both of these teams had the day off on Thursday.
Washington Started off as a 4 point favorite that number is now down to 3.5. The total has gone from 209 to 208.5.
The Cavaliers have certainly played better than a lot of people thought this year. I have been impressed with what I have seen out of them so far this year.
They come into this game having won their last three games. They will look to make it a fourth when they go against this good Wizards squad.
If you are a fan of this team, you have to be happy with the fact that your team is at least relevant. For a while, this was a club that was never in contention and it became common for them to have terrible year after terrible year.
This team has done a very good job in their drafting. At the moment, they have a lot of young talent on the court who seem to mesh well together. They are still a superstar away from winning the whole thing, but it is good to see progress with them.
Cleveland picked up an impressive win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday by a score of 111-85. It is one thing to beat them and it is another to totally wipe them out of the gym.
In the win over Miami, the leading scorer was Kevin Love, who had 22 points and 6 rebounds. Jarrett Allen chipped in 19 points and 11 boards. This game was a good example of how not one guy stood out in the scoring department, but everybody did their part.
The Wizards have started off the year in good fashion. Some thought that they might fade away, but it seems like they have proven they are not pretenders.
Washington sits with a record of 14-8, which puts them in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference. The only teams that are ahead of them are the Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls. I bet a lot of people thought this club would be much lower in the standings at this point in the season.
I find it interesting how this team is doing better now that Russell Westbrook is gone. And not to mention, the Lakers have been struggling, even though a lot of pundits thought they would be much better with the addition of him.
Washington beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday by a score of 115-107. It will be a little tougher for them when they go against this Cavs squad.
Montrezl Harrell was the leading scorer in the win over Minnesota with 27 points and 5 rebounds. Bradley Beal had 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 9 assists in the contest.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
This is a battle between two teams that are definitely exceeding expectations that were given to them heading into the year. I think that it should make for a good game.
I really feel that the Cavs can compete with any team in the league. That does not mean I think they will win them all, but I at least give them a chance.
Overall, I feel that the Wizards have more talent than the Cavs do, but that does not mean it is going to be an easy win for Washington.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Cavs ATS
I feel good backing the Cavs here. I actually would not be surprised if they won the game outright.
In this spot, I just do not trust the Wizards laying the points. I expect this to be a very close game and although 3.5 is not a high number, I am not going to lay it with Washington.
