Blatche’s Big Day Dooms Cavaliers 115-107

The Washington Wizards knew they would be shorthanded in tonight’s match-up against the Cavaliers, with rookie phenom John Wall and guard Nick Young sitting out. Center Andray Blatche stepped up big time and attacked the Cavaliers biggest weakness. In just his second game back on the floor after a shoulder bruise, he posted career his in points, with 36, and rebounds with 19. That shoulder’s looking pretty healthy at this point.

The Cavs J.J. Hickson had an impressive night, but was helpless against Blatche’s assault, as Cleveland was once again out-rebounded by a ton, this time 56-38.Hickson’s double-double gave him 21 points and 10 boards, including going 6-of-10 from the field. Ramon Sessions proved that he should be back in the starting lineup with 26 points in 25 effective minutes. He was a perfect 8-of-8 from the charity stripe. The Cava bench continued to play lights out, outscoring that of the Wizards 48-13.

Along with Blatche, JaVale McGee and rookie Jordan Crawford added 20 plus point efforts, with 25, and 21, respectively.
This loss is number 60 on the season for the Cavaliers, their first 60 loss season since 2002-03.

Cavaliers Take Hot Shooting To Washington

This season the Cavaliers have been the second worst team in the NBA in perhaps the most important category: Shooting percentage. Lately, they have shot their best two team percentages in the past three game span. They shot a season paramount 55.6% against the Miami Heat in their 102-90 win, and 52.2% their 98-97 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday.

The Cavs also caught another break in that the Wizards will be without prolific scorers Nick Young and rookie phenom John Wall. Young is out with a left knee injury, and Wall is serving a one game suspension. Wall got into a heated confrontation with Miami center Zydrunas Ilgauskas

The effective jump shooting has been in large part to the Cavs bench, which has scored 70 points in the past two games. Starter J.J. Hickson has tallied up 41 points and pulled down 19 rebounds in that two game stretch.
