Last season, the teams played four times with the teams splitting the four contests. The Wizards hold the all-time record having bested the Cavaliers in 119 of their 230 matches.
*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Thursday, March 16th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Friday, March 17th.
Each time the Wizards have had an opportunity to rise up the ladder they’ve stumbled yet they remain in the hunt clinging to the 10th rung holding a slim half-game edge over the Bulls.
They had a golden opportunity to pass the Raptors who faltered (1-4) on a West Coast trip but they also recorded a 1-4 record in the same time span.
Statistically, the Wizards fall in the middle ground to the lower tier in the majority of areas. Also, they score 113 points per game ranking 21st while shooting 48.6% from the field and 35.8% from the perimeter ranking seventh and 18th respectively.
So far, defensively, the Wizards allow 113.2 points per game ranking 13th while opponents shoot 46.6% from the field and 36.1% from deep ranking 7th and 16th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Kyle Kuzma SF (questionable —knee)
Not to beat a worn-out drum — BUT — how many times this season have I pointed out how the Cavaliers perform when facing elite teams with their full complement of starters?
Well, I’ve touched on it repeatedly and the loss to the 76ers was yet another example of Cleveland coming up short against a top foe. To reiterate, the Cavs have a solid team, but they are not in the same tier as the Bucks, Celtics and 76ers.
They need another year to grow/gel plus they need a 3 & D wing of Mikal Bridges or OG Anunoby’s ilk to be a bonafide contender.
Offensively, Cleveland scores 112.1 points per game ranking 25th while shooting 48.7% from the field and 36.4% on the perimeter ranking sixth and 12th respectively.
Overall, Cleveland tops the league for opponent scoring limiting foes to an average of 106.8 points per game. Cavs opponents shoot 46.8% from the field and 37.2% from deep ranking 10th and 24th.
To summarize the injury report…
- Jarrett Allen, C (questionable —eye)

Free Washington Wizards vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
Which version of the Wizards will show up? The team who moves the ball and defends both in the paint and in transition? Or the squad who mails in their effort and struggles to find a flow in the game?
Without any guarantee the Wiz bring their best and the uncertainty of Kuzma playing I’ll roll with the Cavs facing another shorthanded starting rotation.
