Cavaliers Going Back-To-Back With Trip To Face Wizards

The Cavaliers have won a lot of games the past two seasons.  One place they didn't win was in Washington against the Wizards.  Washington has won just 29 home games the past two seasons but have gone 3-0 against the Cavaliers during that stretch.  

After getting a close look at the Evan Turner, the #2 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, in Philadelphia on Friday, the Cavaliers will get a chance to see John Wall, the #1 overall pick.  Wall impressed in his home debut on Tuesday night - 29 points, 13 assists and nine steals - to go along with 9 turnovers.

The Cavaliers will be looking for their first winning streak of the new season.  After beating Boston on opening night, the Cavaliers lost their next three before getting their first road win of the year in Philadelphia.  Anderson Varejao led the Cavaliers with 23 points and 12 rebounds.  Mo Williams and Daniel Gibson each scored 22 points as the Cavaliers beat the Sixers 123-116.  

Cleveland will be looking for their first win in Washington since April 6th, 2007 - a 99-94 victory.
