Default Round 1, Cavs at Wizards Game 3, Thu 8pm ET

Vs.

Washington Wizards @ Cleveland Cavaliers







Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Washington Wizards

Dec 5: at Washington 105, Cleveland 86
Jan 23: at Cleveland 121, Washington 85
Feb 22: at Cleveland 90, Washington 89
Mar 13: at Washington 101, Cleveland 99


1st round matchup


Gm. 1: at Cleveland 93, Washington 86
Gm. 2: at Cleveland 116, Washington 86


The Cavaliers played their best game of the season, when they demolished the Wizards in Game 2 of their best of 7 playoff series on Monday. That is the Cavaliers 8th consecutive post season victory againts the Wizards trailing back since the 2006 NBA Season.


Lebron James led the Cavs in scoring with 30 points, 12 rebounds, and 9 assists in 39 minutes becoming the 3rd player since 1991 to accumulate 62 points, 16 assists, 15 rebounds in the first two games of a series. Joining Paul Pierce vs. New Jersey in 2003, and Michael Jordan vs. Portland in the 1992 NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers didn't need to relax because despite outscoring the Wizards by more than 30 points in game 2 none of that matters when the team visit the Washington tomorrow night.

Home teams will always put a better fight in the series, and last year the Cavaliers came back from a 0-2 deficit to edge the Pistons in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

I expect Zdyrunas Ilgauskas, and the rest of the supporting casts to contribute in this game because Wizards are still one of the most dangerous team when they start to hit their outside shoots in the 4th quarter, and i am sure Agent Zero and his teammates are planning to hack Lebron in game 3 in order for him to missed his free throws because he is currently shooting poorly from the foul line.


Even Sophomore PG Daniel Gibson knows that the Wizards are capable of adjusting in this series because he thinks that this team surpass lot of expectation, when they still made it in the playoffs despite missing some of their key starters in the middle of the regular season

"They're not going to lay down and let it go," Gibson said. "Those guys will continue to fight. We'll have to continue to play the way we've been playing if we want to win this series. This series is far from over.

But i still believe that the Cavaliers can repeat their performance in game 2, and the Cavs need to make sure that the Wizards aren't going to do their homework in game 3 because Lebron need to assert himself as one of the best player in the playoffs.

I hope we don't take this team for granted tonight.

They are wounded, angry, and have had their pride stomped upon. Back on their home court, they WILL put up a fight. No matter the circumstances, these are STILL NBA players first and foremost. They will make a run on us tonight. Will we be ready to respond, or will we rest on our laurels from the first two games?

Sadly, I have to miss a large chunk of the game

I don't know how the Wizards are gonna try to stop LeBron. I don't see how they could win this...but I'm not counting them out, as weird as that may sound. They're back home now, and they have to make the best of it.

I hope the Cavaliers will focused on stopping the Wizards backcourt from scoring, and if Haywood acted like a dirty thug i hope Ben Wallace and Andy Varejao kick his ass in the 2nd quarter.

I predict Lebron James will have another great game in the playoffs, and he would probably try to outdone Kobe's performance againts the Denver Nuggets.
