The Pixel-And-Roll Show: Cleveland’s Fluke Win Brings Back Cavs Hate
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.
Last week, John Converse Townsend (@JohnCTownsend) and I analyzed how Washington has turned its season around, while discussing his superb piece on the contract situation of Otto Porter. Check out the lengthy podcast!
