The Washington Wizards are looking to make some noise in the playoffs this season. The Wizards are currently the seventh seed in the East this season, and are guaranteed a spot in the postseason. Cleveland is currently the third seed in the East, and are 9-1 over their last 10 games. LeBron James has been playing at an MVP level.
The last time the Wizards and Cavaliers took the court against each other, was February 22nd. Washington got the win, 110-103.
The Wizards are 4-6 over the last 10 games, and looking like a team that will be eliminated early in the playoffs. The Wizards have recently played bad. A losing record over the last 10 is looking like Washington does not have what it takes.
Washington last took a loss to the Rockets, 120-104. The team was demolished on the road in Houston. Washington Shot 52.8 percent from the floor and 48 percent from three, and still lost by almost 20 points.
The Wizards are going to be playing with John Wall the rest of the year. Wall has returned from a nagging knee injury, and will be in the lineup against Cleveland. Wall shot the ball 17 times in his return game against Chicago. He also went 3 of 10 from the floor against Houston.
The Wizards are allowing 106 points per game this season. Good enough to rank Washington 14th in points allowed per game this season. The Wizards mediocre defensive play could be another reason why the team can’t advance in the postseason.
The Wizards are a talented bunch (on paper), but can’t seem to pull everything together. Washington is still underachieving in my opinion.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the top three teams again in the East right now. Cleveland is one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now. Aside from the 76ers, Cleveland is meshing well at the right time. LeBron James continues to somehow impress the league with the way he has been playing. He averaged a triple double in March.
With James playing at such a high level, Cleveland always has a shot to win the title. Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. have been playing well along side James. It only took a little over a month to start gelling as a team. Hopefully for the Cavaliers, LeBron will be able to lead Cleveland back to the promised land.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Cavaliers are terrible defensively. Cleveland is allowing 109.6 points per game this season. That ranks the Cavaliers 25th in points allowed per game this season. If the Cavaliers are to make a big run at the postseason, they must get better defensively. That will be something interesting to see.

The Wizards usually get overly hyped when playing the Cavaliers. The Wizards are 2-4 against Cleveland over the last six head to head meetings. Hopefully for the Wizards sake, John Wall can be John Wall.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are playing a lot better. The reason why is LeBron James. James will have a big night and fill up the stat sheet. Look for Kevin Love to score 20 points or more against the Wizards.
