Cleveland is one of the worst teams in the league. They are heading nowhere they they generally compete for most of the game.
Washington looks like a lot better team on paper than what they have shown on the court. There is still lots of time to turn things around though/
The Wizards have won three in a row and got the last one without star point guard John Wall who sat out for personal reasons. He is expected to be back for this one, though they might not need him to get the win against Cleveland.
When Wall is out of the lineup Bradley Beal is at his best. He scored 36 points in their road win at Atlanta earlier in the week and looks destined for another All-Star season. I am not sure he is better than Wall but he is really, really good.
No Wall in the lineup means more opportunities for the likes of Austin Rivers and Tomas Satoransky. The latter is proving to be a crafty player who can adapt his game well to being a playmaker and sometimes scorer. I like his game overall.
Washington has the second worst defense in the league and that is going to have to improve if they want to get back into the race. Some nights the offense is going to struggle and truthfully they are not loaded with scoring options.
One way to get healthy is to beat the weakest teams in the league, They just knocked off Atlanta and can build more momentum by doing the same to Cleveland.
After a road win at Brooklyn the Cavaliers had the misfortune of taking on a Golden State team that just got Steph Curry back in the lineup. They lost by 24, not really a surprise in a matchup like that. Amazingly the Cavs are slightly ahead in the Central Division standings.
With Kevin Love out the team has struggled to figure out who should take the shots and when. The exception is Jordan Clarkson who appears to get more shots up per minute than anyone else in the NBA. He leads the team in scoring at 16ppg.
Clarkson is one of 7 Cavs that is scoring in double digits. That includes Alec Burks who was acquired when they dealt Korver back to Utah. Rookie Collin Sexton is showing quickly that he has an NBA level game, even though I think he is more scorer than distributor.

Washington should be favoured in this one. They are on the road though so maybe by only 7 or 8 I think.
That is still more than enough in this matchup. Look for Washington to be sharp with Wall back.

Washington should win and cover with ease in this one. The problem is there are a lot of shoulds with this team.
