CAVS BEAT THE WIZ!
The Cleveland Cavs beat the Wizards in game one at home. It came down to the finish; LeBron and crew proved they can win at home. This was a very emotional game, thanks to the public comments made be Stevenson, Arenas and LJ. Haywood played a very solid game. He was most effective in the first quarter, but you take it where you can get it. He was the third leading scorer for the Wiz, he's still got some developing to do. Lots of dicey calls were made near the end of the game, they could've gone either way. There were a couple of jump balls late, they all went to the Cavs. That's what it came to: getting the tip and taking care of business at the free throw line.
I like the Wizards to win game two, this is a series that will sway back and forth. Wizards medical staff need to re-evaluate Agent Zero and let him play the kind of minutes he played last season. This will really benefit them in the long run, especially if they want to go far in the playoffs.
Delonte West made some inroads today. He played very well late and that will help the Cavs as a team and West's confidence. Look for another close game two of this series on Monday at 7:00 PM Eastern on TNT.
