Default Round 1: Cavs vs. Wizards, Game 5 Wed, 6:00 pm ET (TNT)

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
Gm 3: at Washington 108, Cleveland 72
Gm 4: at Washington 97, Cleveland 100

Cavaliers lead the series 3-1

I think the Cavaliers need to end the series tonight because it would give them alot of confidence going into the 2nd round, and it would probably end the rivalry between the Cavs and the Wizards because they are proving in this game that they are the defending NBA Eastern Conference Champion, and they need some respect from the other team in the League.

I hope LeBron James will be motivated to played his best game of the season by defeating the Wizards, and that would be a huge statement to prove that he is not overrated because he is currently one of the best player in the NBA this season.

I expect Zydrunas Ilgauskas to contribute in this game because the big men is playing better in the first round of the playoffs, and it looks like he is returning to his old form.

The rest of the Supporting Casts need to be more consistent in this game just what they did in Game 4, when Delonte West hit a 3 points shoot to lead the Cavaliers into a 100-97 victory in the Verizon Center.

I think Daniel Gibson and Wally Sczerbiak would be the X-Factor in this game because they have been consistently hitting their outside jumpers, and the Cavaliers are owning the Wizards in the rebounding department beating them 51-31 in Game 4.


Quote:
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP)—LeBron James whistled an unrecognizable tune—no, it wasn’t one of Jay-Z’s—as he practiced free throws. He seemed blissfully serene.

Staying that way will be tough. He’s got to go at least one more round with the Washington Wizards.

A target of taunts and physical abuse almost since the opening tip in Game 1, James and the Cavaliers can eliminate the Wizards from the playoffs for the third straight season Wednesday night.

James, who has enhanced his professional resume by dispatching the Wizards on early summer vacations, knows it won’t be easy to end this first-round series. The Wizards are in a bind, even desperate.

“They ain’t go no choice but to be desperate,” said James, who is averaging 29.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists in four games. “They’re down 3-1. We need to put them away.”
Series at a Glance

On Tuesday, James wouldn’t comment on the latest insult from Wizards center Brendan Haywood, who a day earlier mocked Cleveland’s All-Star by saying, “Awww, they’re trying to hurt me” in a whiny voice in response to James’ assertion following Game 4 that the Wizards are out to get him.

But James stood by his remark: He doesn’t think the Wizards can come back to win the series.

“I just have confidence in our team,” he said. “It has nothing to do with the Wizards. They’re a very good team, but they’ve got to beat us three straight games and I can’t see that happening.”

The Wizards haven’t been eliminated on the road since 1988, when they were knocked out in the first round at Detroit. To avoid a similar fate in Game 5, they’ll need to do a better job on James, hit the boards and make their shots.

It might help, too, if they quit the trash talking, which seems to have boomeranged. Most of what the Wizards have said, has come back to bite them. Throw in some rap stars, a few flagrant fouls and it’s become quite a series.

“I’ve never seen a series like this where you have music involved, you have trash talk involved, everything,” said Cavaliers forward Joe Smith, a 13-year veteran. “I guess that’s the way the sport has grown and when you have a rivalry like this, there’s no telling what you might find.”

Cavs need to win this one. They need to rest up for the mighty celtics or the athletic hawks

Why is this game coming on at 6??

This series is over. Washington is talking a good game that they can't actually go out and play. LeBron will come out hungry and motivated. Also, I look for West to have another good game, and Ilgauskas will put up 15/10.
