Mark Your Calendars: Washington Wizards Vs. Cleveland Cavaliers On Feb. 13th
You look at this post and ask yourself “Why should I care about two lousy teams playing each other?” But the fact that they are both lousy is the exact reason why you should find a way to watch this game on February 13th.
As you may know, the Cleveland Cavaliers are on the brink of making history by having the longest losing streak in the history of the league. But if all goes right wrong, the Cavs will enter the game with the Wizards riding a 27-game losing streak. It’s not unforeseeable considering the lowly Cavs have to play Memphis, Dallas, Los Angeles Clippers, Portland and Detroit. These are all games they can, and probably will, lose. The Cavs’ decimated roster coupled with the curse of the LeBron James hangover have put Dan Gilbert‘s team in a place they haven’t been since King James first joined the team.
And then you have the Washington Wizards. They are already an NBA worst 0-25 on the road this year after dropping a February 1 game to the New Orleans Hornets. They won’t have an opportunity to end the streak until they pull into Cleveland. Aside from John Wall, there aren’t too many bright spots on that Wizards’ roster. But we do have to say that Wall, Rashard Lewis, JaVale McGee and Nick Young seem better on paper than whatever hodgepodge group of misfits the Cavs put on the floor.
If the Cavs follow the game plan, they will face off on February 13 and one of their futility streaks will have to end. It’s the best worst game of the season. Yeah, it may be a craptastic ballgame, but it will be interesting to watch two awfully awful teams go at it, knowing that one of their streaks will end.
I’ll be watching (somehow)—will you?
