The Cavs are the best team in a surprisingly competitive Eastern Conference. Still it is obvious they are a cut above.
Washington is looking hard pressed to get back to the playoffs right now. Injuries and poor play have really done them in.
Now that they are at full strength there is little doubt that Cleveland is the class of the Eastern Conference. With Kyrie Irving back on the floor they look positioned to go on a run.
With Irving around it takes the pressure off of LeBron from a scoring perspective. Irving can get a pretty good shot whenever he wants and his shooting will come around – he was 25/8/6 in his last game.
The numbers really don’t add up on offense for this group. They are 7th in shooting and 6th from behind the arc but only 24th in ppg. That must mean they are turning it over a lot and getting killed on the boards right?
LeBron is still LeBron but he does not have to be all the time now with Kevin Love back to being a productive member of the team. They have their big three going and it seems to be working pretty good.
They might be catching the Wizards at a strategic point as well.
Washington is looking to play catchup in the East. Unfortunately their streakiness is not helping matters any. They have dropped three of four.
Other key players have been in and out this season but John Wall has been a rock for this team averaging close to 20/10. He might have been the top player in the league in December.
Running mate Bradley Beal is still out and that is hurting this club big time. They just can’t find enough scoring on a regular basis.
Up front Nene has been hurt too and even though he is not an All-Star calibre player I think he was critical to their success last year. He is physical and productive and without him Marcin Gortat is not as big a weapon.
At full strength this is a good matchup but the Wizards are far from that.
