Cavaliers vs. Wizards final score: Washington loses 8th game in a row

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Wizards have lost eight straight games, falling to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday, 87-84.

The Washington Wizards dropped their eighth game in a row on Wednesday, falling to the Cleveland Cavaliers, 87-84. Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving had 26 points, shooting 8 of 23 from the field with eight assists and six rebounds. He had the best performance of the night and was primarily responsible for downing the Wizards.

Washington's Emeka Okafor shot 8 for 14 from the field and grabbed 10 rebounds, scoring 17 points. He led the way for Washington, though Jordan Crawford also had 17 points. Nobody really stood out for the Wizards, and it cost them big time.

The Wizards actually shot 46.1 percent from the field, which was better than Cleveland's 37.8 percent. They also had 51 rebounds to Cleveland's 38, but suffered in the three-point shooting.

The current eight-game losing streak isn't actually the longest of the season for the 3-23 Wizards. They lost 12 games to start the season. They'll try to get back in the win column on Friday when they take on the Orlando Magic at home, and Cleveland will take on the Atlanta Hawks on the same day.
