Even though he had 15 assists to only 1 turnover, Wall needs to be much more aggressive in terms of scoring.

Washington is 1-5 ATS in the last five meetings. Not only that, but they both firmly believed their Wizards were the best in the East.

Just in case there were any questions about Eastern Conference supremacy, LeBron James poured in 57 points — the second-highest total of his career and an NBA-best this season — to help the Cleveland Cavaliers end a four-game losing skid by beating the Washington Wizards 130-122 Friday night.

No it wasn't a playoff game and the Cavs aren't in first place because of that win either, but that isn't Lebron's fault as he continues to be the real MVP of the National Basketball Association.

The 76ers are over.500 for the first time in almost four years.

Chennai rains: Residents reel under monsoon fury; schools shut, farming, fishing affected
Authorities in Tamil Nadu say that schools and colleges in Chennai and other parts of coastal state will remain closed on Friday. Many suburban areas of Chennai continued to remain submerged, even as the water level in various areas was slowly receding.

Frazier's numbers are nearly the exact opposite of Wall's - not surprising as he's the backup point guard - so Washington will need him to step up in a big way and facilitate the offense with the starting unit (which should help him). Wall deserved competitive kudos for playing on but finished with his worst shooting night of season (4 of 13 overall with seven missed free throws) and scored his lowest total (13 points).

Tim Frazier will start at point guard for the Wizards, coach Scott Brooks said. In the first quarter alone Rose scored 9 points on 4-for-5 shooting and scored in a variety of ways. It's definitely tough for many Wizards fans, to see that even after eight years of being in the league Wall has yet to develop a consistent jump shot. Green, who continued the incident by confronting Beal and failing to disengage from him, was ejected for fighting, and has been fined $25,000.

"Each and every night", Beal said. The over went 2-1. Hopefully, he can turn things around.

Wall is averaging 20.5 points and 10.4 assists this season for the Wizards.

The Wizards are scheduled to visit the Raptors at 10am (AEDT) on Monday.
