Late Spurt Gives Washington 28-27 Lead After First Quarter

After spotting Cleveland an early lead, the Washington Wizards caught the Cavaliers and, after trading the lead back-and-forth at the end of the period, Washington leads 28-27 after twelve minutes in Washington.

Jamario Moon and Daniel Gibson each have five to lead the Cavs, while Anderson Varejao has five boards. Al Thornton leads the Wizards with 11, and Kirk Hinrich has nine points for Washington.

The Cavaliers are trying to win on the road for the second night in a row after winning in Philadelphia last night.
