The Line: Cleveland Cavaliers -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
TV: CSNB, FSOH
The Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers play Wednesday night at the Quicken Loans Arena.
The Washington Wizards look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. On the season, the Wizards are averaging 98.5 points on 46.4 percent shooting and are allowing 97.6 points on 43.4 percent shooting. John Wall is averaging 17.6 points and 10 assists while Bradley Beal is averaging 15.2 points and 3.7 rebounds. Marcin Gortat is grabbing 8.8 rebounds and Paul Pierce is dishing two assists. The Washington Wizards are coming off a Tuesday double-overtime loss to the Pacers in which they shot just 35.6 percent from the field. Since the Wizards are locked into the fifth seed in the East, I wouldn’t expect their starters to play in this matchup after last night. Nene is questionable with an ankle injury.
