- Five Things Learned About Wizards’ Loss To Cavaliers November 27, 2014Two straight, that’s how many games the Washington Wizards have now lost after losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-87. Their biggest deficiencies have been exposed by the Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers the past two nights. Washington appeared to be looking forward to their Thanksgiving meals rather than asserting themselves as one of top teams in the Eastern Conference. As a result, they took a tough-swallowing loss to a rival, giving the Cavaliers confidence about their development of being the top heavyweight in the conference. Here are five things we learned about the Wizards loss to Cleveland. 1. John Wall Was Too Passive Where was John Wall’s mind at Wednesday? He seemed disinterested in the game. He was too passive. Wall sat back and watched the game get away from the Wizards. Sure he defended well as he usually does, but on the offensive end he was discontent. He took only six shots and did not score for the final three quarters. What was worse was he chose to do so rather than being
- Cavs Blow Out Wiz November 27, 2014The Wizards lost back to back games for the first time this season, losing 113-87 to the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Thanksgiving Eve. Lebron James nearly turning a triple double with 29 points, ten rebounds and eight assists. Cleveland (7-7) stormed to a 31-18 first quarter lead and it was for all purposes over. It was just five days ago that the Wizards had their way with the Cavs at the Verizon Center, so payback was certainly on the minds of Lebron and crew. At 9-5, Washington still leads the Southeast Division and hold the second best record in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards again were without the injured Nene (foot) and are 0-3 without the big man. Two games without a fast break point is a problem and needs to be addressed. Rasual Butler led Washington with 23 points, while John Wall was held to only six shots and six points. Wall had averaged 27 points in the last three meetings with Cleveland. Backcourt mate Bradley Beal made his first start of the season after coming off the bench since returning

- Cavs have pinpointed the problem, but can they fix it? November 26, 2014Is the recipe for victory, once reduced to its most integral grail ingredients, merely toughness and discipline? Several members of the Cleveland Cavaliers appear to feel so as they welcome the Washington Wizards into Quicken Loans Arena just five days after being soundly beaten in Washington, 91-78. “If you look at our season so far, we have had high-turnover games and lost, and high-assist, low-turnover games that we have won,” said LeBron James during Wednesday morning’s shootaround. “That’s what it comes down to.” This past Friday evening, in front of a nationally televised crowd, James and the Cavaliers were beaten in all facets of the game. The Wizards were quicker, moved the ball better and played tougher, more physical defense. The loss was the third in a row at the time, and was compounded by a loss the following night against the Toronto Raptors. On Monday, the Cavs got things back in track in a dominating win over the Orlando Magic, but the game was hardly a litmus test for the otherwis
