The Cavs were outscored by 15 in the second quarter and couldn’t recover in Tuesday’s 81-62 loss to the Wizards. Daniel Gibson who started at point guard scored 13 points on 7 of 12 shooting, 2 of 3 from the three point land. Lebron James played only 15 minutes and scored 3 points on 1 of 5 shooting.
Before the game, James, who caused a stir last week when he showed up at an Indians playoff game wearing a New York Yankees cap, predicted Cleveland would win the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox.
“I think Cleveland is going to win,” he said. “Like I’ve said before, if there was going to be a team who beat the Yankees, I wanted it to be the Indians. I think Cleveland will do the same thing it did in New York.”
