GT #63: Bullets @ Cavs 7:30 PM (NBCSW/1500 AM) [4/30/21]

YOUR Washington Bullets are now 28-34 and winners of 11 of their last 13. The best record in the NBA in that span. :o They remain in the 10th spot but creeping up on the Hornets.

The Bullets swept the regining NBA champions in DC on Wednesday night. Russ and Brad had efficient, great performances. Rui had one of the dunks of the year... on Anthony Davis. And the defense continues to impress. It seems that the Wizards have now become a fast pace, paint point scoring team. The number of 3-pointers taken is down as well.

On Friday night, another game with the Cavs is on tap. This time in Cleveland. Kevin Love came under fire earlier this week for his bad body language in a game at Tampa against the Raptors. He's apologized to his team but it seems this rebuild with CLE's young guys and the relics of the Cavs last championship runs is coming to a head soon.

Larry Nance Jr., Isaiah Hartenstein, Matthew Dellavedova and Lamar Stevens all suffered injuries from Sunday's game in DC.

Will the Cavs get revenge at home for the L they took earlier this week?

Interesting that Okoro does not look much taller than Beal who is 6’3” (no shoes). I’d be surprised is he is taller than 6’4” without shoes.

Excellent last few minutes of the quarter.

Rui with the best 10 minutes of his career so far.

Westbrook's quick jumpers early in the shot clock might as well be considered turnovers.

Bad shooting night so far…

The fact that Bertans has zero FG is on Brooks. For the love of God, design some plays for him!!

Much better defensively now. Oh boy, how much has the D improved since the start of the season!

Ish picked a good night to hit shots. Nice start from Rui and Gafford as well.

True. Only Gafford matches up well with him…but Brooks likes to play him no more than 20-22mins a game so…

This is a kind of uncomfortable lead.... Wish they'd push these guys back another 6-7 points.

Allen is just a terrific player, yes.

Kevin Love should have been suspended for his actions in his last game. I know he apologized to his teammates but he's making $31M a year to do more than rebound and set screens. He literally looks disinterested on the offensive end or in attempting a shot.

Wiz should blow this team out. I know they have some talent, but some of their players are going through the motions.

This is a very high-paced game. I expect Cleveland to wear out in the 4th quarter.

11-0 Wizards run and Cleveland still won't call a timeout. They are tanking now.
