The Washington Wizards get only a few hours off after their Friday night game against the New York Knicks. Saturday night, the Wizards host the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Verizon Center. The two teams have only played once this season with the Wizards winning 101-98 on March 3.
Jordan Crawford scored 31 points in that game while John Wall added 24 points. The defense had to contend with former Wizard Antawn Jamison's 29 points and Kyrie Irving's 20 points to win at home.
The complexion of the Wizards has changed since that game. Both JaVale McGee and Nick Young were traded at the deadline. Nene Hilario has been helpful for the Wizards as the season has been dwindling to a close. Even though he has had some injury problems, the Wizards have been competitive in most of the games since the trade.
The game will begin at 7:00 p.m. with television coverage provided by Comcast Sports Network.
