After beating the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, the Cavaliers came into D.C. winners of five straight. The Wizards came in losers of six straight. But the Verizon Center has been a house of pain for the Cavaliers over the years. And despite the records, that trend continued on Wednesday. Cleveland led by seven after one half, but the Wizards came out on fire after intermission ? outscoring the Wine and Gold, 31-21, in the third and pushing their lead to as many as 18 in the fourth. LeBron led everyone with 34 points, going 12-for-20 from the floor with a game-high nine assists before being pulled with most of the starters with just under two minutes to play. He hurt his left wrist by banging it on the basket while dunking late in the game.
