Wizards hold off new-look Cavs

Wizards hold off new-look Cavs

"Trying to convince my mom that I'm not living at home", he said, smiling.

The younger Nance finished second to Utah's Donovan Mitchell, but that diminish memories he'll forever cherish.

The Cavs' four new players - Hill, Clarkson, Nance and Hood - combined for 29 points after totaling 49 in their debut at Boston and 48 at Oklahoma City.

"LeBron James entered Thursday night possessing one heck of a track record when it comes to the first game following the NBA's All-Star break".

"I was just joking", explained Oubre, whose tactic was exposed by the Cavs with a replay on their giant scoreboard. They are already at a distinct talent disadvantage against the Cavs, and if they fail to compensate that shortcoming with effort, they won't stand much of a chance. Look for them to come out with a bit more aggressiveness against the Grizzlies in order to get back on track.

Larry Nance Jr.is getting to honor his father by wearing his dad's retired No. 22 jersey with the Cavs, who worked with the National Basketball Association to make the unique tribute possible.

Larry Nance Sr. wore No. 22 with the Cavs.

"They're actually looking at a house right now", he said. "I hate losing, obviously, but I think the way we played, the way we shared the ball". Nance Jr. joked that he also plans to wear tight shorts and high white socks the rest of this season.

Tyronn Lue said that he will start LeBron James at small forward, Tristan Thompson at center and Cedi Osman at power forward.

They also got rid of Dwyane Wade, sending him back to the Miami Heat where he spent the first 13 years of his career, made 12 all-star appearances and won three championships.

The league has always had teams from the Eastern and Western Conferences compete separately in the postseason with the respective conference winners meeting in the Finals. But both teams were red-hot entering the break. Hill was especially unlucky, with two good looks going in and out. Westbrook and Anthony had missed the past two games with sprained ankles.

"It just changes the landscape of the history of the game", he said. "We've got a lot of things to work on. we still played our game, we just didn't make a lot of shots".

One of the biggest assists of the night came from Beal as he caught the inbound with just under a minute left in the game.

A reporter recently suggested that James had been visibly more excited and tuned-in since the shake-up of this team at the trade deadline, but James didn't hesitate to shoot that notion down.

The third quarter was the competitive kind of battle fans like to see. The team is now 8-2 without their starting point guard and though there are a few reasons for the recent success, one reigns supreme: passing.
