The Cleveland Cavaliers are on a mission this year, and will have to face the tough minded Washington Wizards. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won 17 of their last 19 games. Washington is 16-13 this year, and have won two in a row, most recently beating the Los Angeles Clippers 100-91. The Wizards shot 44 percent from the floor against the Clippers in the win.
Th last time the Cavaliers and Wizards took the court against each other, was November 3rd. The Cavaliers got the win, 130-122 in a tough road environment.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are the hottest team in the NBA right now. The Cavaliers have won four in a row, and most recently beat the Utah Jazz, 109-101. Cleveland shot a solid 53.2 percent from the field and 50 percent from three point land in the eight point win.
LeBron James continues to show why he is the best player on the planet. James had another triple double, passing Larry Bird on the all time triple double list. James had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the record breaking performance against Utah.
Aside from James historic night, Kevin Love played well recently against the Jazz. Love shot seven of 14 from the floor for 15 points, five rebounds and four assists. Jeff Green also chipped in against the Jazz. Green had 11 points in 17 minutes against the Wizards.
In their only matchup of the season, the Cavaliers shot 56 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from three point land. Look for Cleveland to try and get more help from other players on the roster besides LeBron James. The best in the business had 57 points in the November 3rd road win.
As LeBron James goes, so do the Cavaliers. There probably isn’t another team NBA that rely’s more heavily on one player.
The Washington Wizards don’t need to wear all black, or secretly play a theme for this meeting. Instead the Wizards need to focus on where they measure up against the best in the east. Washington recently beat the Clippers, and were led by Mike Scott. The current Wizard reserve finished the game with 22 points on nine of 10 shooting from the field.
The Wizards also recently got John Wall back from a sore knee. Hopefully for the Wizards, Wall can continue to play at a high level. Wall is averaging 19.7 points and 8.7 rebounds this year. Wall recently dropped 15 points on five of 16 from the floor. Bradley Beal also did what he was suppose to for the Wizards, leading the team with 20 points in the win.
With Wall being well rested, and Beal averaging a career high 23.6 points per game this year, the team will have their second shot at Cleveland. This time James won’t need 57 points.
