For the third straight year, the Cavaliers will face Washington Wizards in the first round of the playoffs. Unlike last season where the Wizards batteled with injuries during the playoffs, this time everyone is healthy on their team.
With a Cavaliers win tonight over the 76ers or Wednesday against the Pistons, the Cavaliers will have homecourt advantage.
“Yay, that is so fun, I am excited,” James said with heavy sarcasm. “I wanted to play somebody else, but if we have to play somebody, I’m glad it is Washington.”
Trash talk time
“This is the third straight year of trash talk,” James said. “I’ll read the clippings and it’ll help me get some more gas under my belt.”
