NBA – Cleveland Cavaliers at Washington Wizards

Thursday January 7, 8am, Verizon Centre

The Cavs commence a six game road trip and take on the Wizards who beat up the Cavs back in December.

Game rating – Cavaliers 103 v Wizards 96

The Cavaliers (23-9) are right back on top of their game following a (100-122) home court route of the Toronto Raptors on Monday, with Kyrie Irving playing his best game of the season, since returning from injury.  Irving shot 24 points while LeBron James weighed in with 20 and the feel is that the Cavs are about to hit some serious form.  The Wizards (15-17) had been in great form, winning five straight matches before going 1-4 in the past five games with a particularly bad loss to Miami (97-75) on their home court at their most recent match.


The Cavs are nearing full fitness with only bench player Joe Harris listed as injured, whereas the Wizards have six players listed as injured or doubtful for the clash.  The Cavs will be all out for revenge following their shock (97-85) loss to the Wizards earlier this season.  The Cavs to win and cover the line.
