The Wizards suffered an excruciating loss to Cleveland on Monday night, on TNT, falling 140-135 in overtime to the defending NBA champions, after Washington’s nemesis LeBron James banked in a miraculous 3-point shot at the end of regulation. Legendary broadcaster Steve Buckhantz called the action-packed contest “one of the best regular season games [he’d] ever seen.” Buck’s observation was correct in that it was the definitive “moral victory” in modern Wizards lore. It took a fluke shot (and a few before it) in order for the Cavs to break Washington’s 17-game home winning streak. While Wiz followers were emotionally upset, there was solace in that their performance earned them credibility among national NBA pundits and fans.

TAI’s Rashad Mobley (@rashad20), who covered the game with this excellent recap, joined me on The Pixel-and-Roll Show to chop up all the craziness that went down.
