cleveland cavaliers vs washington wizards in the first round of the playoffs

it seems the cleveland cavaliers is the luckiest team in the playoffs this season and the washington wizards is the most unlucky team in the nba. the cavaliers are facing the injury-plagued wizards. lebron james and the cavaliers are looking good to extend their spectacular season facing a small roadblock in the wizards who's without gilbert arenas and caron butler. aside from facing the shorthanded wizrds, the cavaliers have the luxury of possibly facing the inexperienced toronto raptors in the second round, something they can really take advantage of. it seems the cavs have 2 free tickets going to the conference finals. can the cavs take those free rides to the conference finals or will antawn jamison and the rest of the wizards do some magic to turn the tide their way?

Yes, I agree with you.I have my prediction of Cleveland Cavaliers will sweep the series over the Washington Wizards.With the injury-depleted Washington Wizards matching the heavily favored Cleveland Cavaliers basket for basket early in the game, LeBron James knew his presence was necessary. The three-time All-Star, who finished with 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, rolled his ankle with 8:03 left in the third quarter, but stayed in the game to spark a 16-6 Cavalier run and an eventual 97-82 victory on Sunday. Larry Hughes racked up 27 points and seven rebounds for Cleveland, which outscored Washington by eight in the fourth quarter. Antawn Jamison recorded 28 points and 14 rebounds for the Wizards, while Jarvis Hayes scored 18.
