Saturday’s matchup of the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers will feature two teams expected to be in the top half of the Eastern Conference come playoff time, and could be a 2nd round matchup preview once the playoffs begin.
Their last meeting was billed as one of the best games of the season, both teams attacking back and forth that ended in an overtime win for the Cavaliers.
The core of this current iteration of the Wizards have been a source of contention for fans of the team and the NBA alike.
The backcourt duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal have simply never put it together for an extended period of time, until this year that is.
It didn’t start out that way however, the team was 6-12 after their first game in December and frustration for fans of the team was beginning to boil over.
Since that point the team has gone 37-16 and is near the top of the league in many categories.
The Wizards up to this point of the season are 5th in points scored, tied for fourth in field goal percentage, tied for third in steals per game and top 3 in hustle stats per game (deflections and loose balls recovered) and they are deeper than simply their strong backcourt duo.
They added Bojan Bogdanovic at the trade deadline, Otto Porter Jr. is having the season of his life and the frontcourt duo of Marcin Gortat and Markieff Morris are an efficient scoring bunch.
The team has been down of late, losing four of their last six to include three losses to non-playoff teams. During this streak, their offensive scoring has been down while they haven’t improved their defense to match.
Yet this game against the Cavaliers is an important one, teams throughout the East usually bring their best effort against the defending champions and this one will be no different.
As this is also a possible playoff preview, the Wizards will have a little bit more energy than normal.
The Cavaliers are in full blown “coast into the playoffs” mode, they regularly rest their players (sometimes all of them at once) and are cautious with minutes.
Lebron James has appeared in six straight NBA Finals and has proven that he doesn’t need home court advantage throughout the playoffs, or even the Eastern Conference, to complete his goal.
This is obvious in the losses that the Cavaliers have suffered recently, they lost to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday and the Los Angeles Clippers just a few days before that.
Yet Cleveland still sits in the pole position in the Eastern Conference, one game ahead of the Boston Celtics.
The Cavaliers, like the Wizards, are littered across the leaderboards. They are near the top of the league in points per game and do so by shooting and converting a lot of three pointers.
Even without their superstar, the Cavaliers are still an efficient bunch with talented shooters and scorers throughout their roster.
At this point of the season it’s difficult to gamble on the Cavaliers, their stars aren’t always playing and when they are, it’s possible that their minutes will be limited.
Even when playing a full game, effort level should be questioned. Yet they are also capable of blowing teams out on command, tread lightly.
