Box Score: Wizards 101, Cavaliers 98

Head coach Byron Scott mixed up the lineups on Friday night against the lowly Washington Wizards but unfortunately for Cavs fans, the end result was still the same as Cleveland dropped its fifth straight game. Ryan Hollins and Alonzo Gee got the start in place of Omri Casspi and Semih Erden. Amazingly, this was Antawn Jamison’s first game at the Verizon Center since he was traded for Zydrunas Ilgauskas in 2010. Jamison felt right at home, chucking up 24 shot and  leading the Cavaliers with 29 points. The Cavs will now host the Jazz on Monday night, looking to end this five-game skid.

    Why is Parker taking the last shot once again? Especially when Kyrie was WIDE open with 3 seconds left when parker shot it.

  • Jaker

    its ridiculous. in no way does this help the team in the long haul. 

  • amye.murphy

    I was at the game, live near DC, this was miserable to watch them lose it at the end after being up the whole game.

    Parker’s shot is gone, and he was at his worst last night. Unreal to give him the ball when he was shooting bricks all night, and even had an airball, and a deep shot that barely grazed the rim.

    You give the ball to kyrie, or Tawn, since he was hot, and those are the only options. Fun game to watch nonethless.

    Bad loss but Parker’s shot has been gone for years lets just hope this is the last year he’s on the Cavaliers roster.

  • Lyon25

    I feel like he broke the play off.  They had a screen set up for Kyrie, that’s how he was so open.  But seems to me Parker decided that taking a contested 3 was better.

    Man am I glad we have his veteran leadership on this team.

  • sda

    Why can’t Hopkins play like that every night

  • sda

    Stupid phone. Hollins

  • Wow

    So aside from missing half the season as well as last second shots, why did Parker come back?
