On Sunday, April 25th the Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards meet for the first this season. They’ll play twice more on April 30th at Cleveland and back in Washington on May 14th.
Last season, the squads three times with Cleveland taking two of the three contests. The Wizards hold the all-time record between the squads with 113 victories in the team’s 221 meetings.
Of the Cavaliers 21 wins this season, 10 came against teams holding seeds eighth or higher but notably, March 17th was the last win against one of those elite clubs (Celtics). In fact, seven of those 10 wins came before February.
In their last game, the Cavaliers lost to the undermanned Hornets although they took an early nine-point lead at the half after dropping a 35-23 second quarter on Charlotte.
Cleveland couldn’t hold off the Hornets who roared back in the second half to outscore them 60 to 47 to win the game 108-102.
It was the Cleveland backcourt that made the greatest impact with Collin Sexton scoring 28 points along with seven rebounds, two assists, and a steal.
His backcourt partner, Darius Garland tends to handle more of the playmaking but also managed to score 27 points with six assists, four rebounds, and two steals.
Jarrett Allen came one rebound shy of a double-double with 15 points and nine rebounds although most of his damage was done in the first half.
Kevin Love chipped in 12 points while Isaiah Hartenstein offered 10 points as the other double-figure contributors.
Cleveland reports Taurean Prince will undergo season-ending ankle surgery. Damyean Dotson (knee), and Dylan Wyndler (knee) are out Sunday.
While Bradley Beal was sidelined with a hip injury Russell Westbrook did his best to help the Wizards win but they only managed to win once in six contests.
Since Beal’s return, the Wizards are feasting on an easy schedule winning all nine games (only the Jazz were seeded) he played. They’ve won seven in a row and moved up to 10th.
In these nine matches, Beal is averaging 30.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.2 steals while shooting 40.0% from deep on 6.1 attempts.
Their final 13 games feature six seeded clubs and seven seeded ninth or lower. Notably, Washington will play the ninth seed Pacers twice as well as the Raptors who are also chasing that 10th seed and have beat Washington twice.
In the win Friday against the Thunder, Westbrook collected his 28th triple-double of the season (37 points, 11 assists, 11 rebounds) and 174 all-time. Westbrook needs eight more to surpass Oscar Robertson’s all-time record of 181 triple-doubles.
Beal (33), Raul Neto (15), and Davis Bertans (12) were the other double-figure scorers.
Rui Hachimura (knee) is day-to-day while Avdija (ankle) and Thomas Bryant (knee) are lost for the season.
