Game Preview


On January 5, the Washington Wizards (6-27) will visit Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse to play the Cleveland Cavaliers (19-15).


In their last game, Cleveland set season highs in several areas, including points (140), 3-point % (47.6), and rebounds (62). The Cavaliers equaled their biggest ever victory margin versus Washington while matching their season-high in offensive rebounds (18). Donovan Mitchell contributed 4 3-pointers, and Max Strus drained 6. With 24 points, six of eight from outside the arc, and 3 triples apiece from Sam Merrill, Georges Niang, and Caris LeVert, Strus led the team in scoring.  The Cavaliers are still in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff race despite having missed games due to injuries to Garland and Mobley. They are ranked 24th in scoring offense currently going into their rematch. They rank 26th in 3-point shooting and 15th in field goal percentage. The Cavs rank 11th in opponent points per game so far because of their above-average defensive play.



The Washington Wizards have just lost to the Cavaliers and Hawks. In terms of shooting percentage, the Washington Wizards average 116.2 points on 48.1%  and surrendering 126.6 points on 50.2%. Jordan Poole averages 16.9 points and 3.7 assists, while Kyle Kuzma averages 22.8 points and 6.1 rebounds. The third player to score in double figures is Tyus Jones, while Corey Kispert is pulling down 2.1 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are making 76.7% of their free throws and 35.4% of their shots from outside the arc. They are pulling down 39.4 rebounds per game and allowing just 37.8% of shots from beyond the arc. With Danil Gallinari suffering from lower back spasms, the Washington Wizards will have to wait to see if he can return to action. They have a clear injury report and are expected to use a full-strength rotation aside from the seasoned forward.
