No matter the various ways James picked apart the Wizards' defense like he was going up against ninth graders, shooting multiple fadeaway jumpers like it was nothing, let's zero in on the fact he shot two air-balls late in the game after playing 43 minutes! "That's just the way I feel", Beal would say Friday.
To add insult to injury, Wall spoke with ESPN's Rachel Nichols before Friday's game and said he believes the Cavaliers intentionally dropped games during the end of last year's regular season to avoid matching up with the Wizards in second round of the playoffs.
After giving up a 22-point lead against the Phoenix Suns, it seemed that the Washington Wizards were determined to thrash the vulnerable Cleveland Cavaliers-who were coming off four straight losses. Cleveland leads the National Basketball Association with points on 68 percent on its drives, while Washington ranks second at 63 percent.
Wall said the Wizards will be faced with a similar challenge. That would be an interesting question, but they'd probably have a better shot at winning than this year's Cavs team. The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Toronto.
If you come at the king, you best not miss. "We just got to find a way to get over that hump and beat them and go to the Finals". They didn't want to see us in the second round. It's always a good matchup.
Paul Pierce must've thought this through, because he is bring up some solid points!
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.
We don't know yet exactly what LeBron is thinking when it comes to his future plans, but it's safe to say everyone will be waiting eagerly to see what he does next, especially if the Cavs fall out of the title picture early. "I want to be as complete a basketball player as I can be".
"Each and every night", Beal said. "It's going to give us a boost". "We're a targeted team now".
