Washington Wizards Three Takeaways: Wizards Lose in a Shootout with the Cavaliers

Bradley Beal John Wall John Wall Says Wizards 'Smell Blood' In Matchup With Cavaliers
Andrew Cummings | 06 November, 2017, 01:56

No it wasn't a playoff game and the Cavs aren't in first place because of that win either, but that isn't Lebron's fault as he continues to be the real MVP of the National Basketball Association. "I always said that", Beal told NBC Sports Washington's Chris Miller. If Wall misses time, the Wizards can use Tim Frazier as playmaker, but Bradley Beal might assume ball-handling duties until the All-Star point guard returns from injury.

Beal insinuated to CSN Washington in May, after the No. 4-seeded Wizards were eliminated by the No. 1 seeded Boston Celtics in seven games, that the Cavs purposely ducked the Wizards in the 2016 playoffs by tanking games late in the regular season to avoid the matchup. Cleveland leads the National Basketball Association with points on 68 percent on its drives, while Washington ranks second at 63 percent. With Wall injuring his shoulder towards the end of the third quarter, the Wizards needed all that they could get from their star forward and he didn't produce. That would be an interesting question, but they'd probably have a better shot at winning than this year's Cavs team.

The Wizards are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 vs. You know, so there's always hype behind it. They didn't want to see us in the second round. So that's kind of how we go back and forth. Not only that, but they both firmly believed their Wizards were the best in the East.

Paul Millsap had 27 points, including three straight free throws with 11.9 seconds remaining to lift the Nuggets past the Heat 95-94.

I'm quite convinced Skip Bayless is employed purely to troll and get a rise out of people, no matter how stupid he looks doing it.

"I think they wanted to see us in the Eastern Conference finals, and we fell one game short of it". Even though there are cases of inconsistencies, they tend to bring as much as they can to the floor every night. "So teams are really coming after us and giving us their A game". "We're a targeted team now".
