Streaks: Cavs have won one. This is this first of three meetings this season.
Notes and Observations:
Irving (illness) is a game-time decision after missing Friday’s loss to Chicago. … If he‘s a go, this will be the first matchup between the No. 1 pick in each of the previous two drafts. … Wall was taken first in 2010. … Cavs coach Byron Scott expected to make two changes to the starting lineup tonight. No official word on what those changes may be, but some suspect rookie Tristan Thompson will get the start at center and Alonzo Gee will start at small forward. … But again, that’s pure speculation. … Crawford is averaging 20.4 points on 52 percent shooting in his last seven games. … Cavs have lost four straight and seven of 10, fading from playoff picture. … Former Cavs coach Randy Wittman (1999-2001) is interim coach of the Wizards. … Jamison spent more than five seasons with the Wizards (2004-10).
