Cleveland Cavaliers vs Washington Wizards: Prediction, line-ups & preview 11/3/17

NEW YORK NY- OCTOBER 25 Le Bron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts in the fourth quarter against the Brooklyn Nets during their game at Barclays Center

"I think [the Cavs] understand what we can bring to the table", Wall said.

With no Irving, and James surrounded by an aging cast of complementary players from Dwyane Wade (35), Jeff Green (31), JR Smith (32), Kyle Korver(36) to Derrick Rose (29, but with an injury history of someone twice his age), the opposition hasn't treated the Cavs with the type of reverence you'd expect a team with Cleveland's credentials to receive.

"We're down a couple guys, so they'll get an opportunity, a chance to play a little bit", Lue said.

Beal and his backcourt mate John Wall appeared on ESPN's "The Jump" Friday afternoon ahead of a marquee matchup with the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers, and host Paul Pierce asked about where the team stands in the Eastern Conference. "I think it's surprising to all of us that it's happening right now, but hey, it is what it is and it's exciting to see how we can turn this thing around".

Wade said the team is trying to figure it out together. They're aware of that, and hopefully that's a thing of the past. When you walked in, it wasn't a big smile no more.

The most weird development, meanwhile, has been just how bad the Cleveland Cavaliers look after eight games.

Beyond the numbers, Porter has more than proven to be a valuable asset for the long-term future for the Wizards, while holding the potential to become an All-Star talent down the line behind his improving play on the floor. As they seek to reclaim what has been their usual place as the top team in the Eastern Conference, one of their new additions provided perspective on the Cavs' mini-swoon.

"I feel like we're the best team".

Cleveland's defense has been horrendous, with the Cavs giving up 111.9 points a game (25th in the NBA). Everyone's playing free, it's early in the year, and everything's going right for everybody but us. "We've got to continue to get our coverages down, our communication down".
