Wizards' Wall's shoulder in sling

Bradley Beal John Wall

The post JR Smith denies Bradley Beal's claim Cavs tanked to duck Wizards in playoffs appeared first on Cavs Nation.

John Wall emerged in the Wizards' locker room after Washington's 130-22 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday with a sling around his left shoulder.

"I shouldn't have been out there, but I was trying to compete", Wall said. I always stand by it because I mean, why would I sit here and say another team's better than my team? I'm not going to sit here and do that.

Then I saw them play in person against the Lakers, a game where they were unimpressive and lost. "I've got confidence in myself and my teammates and what we can bring to our team and what we can accomplish".

Both losses were due to the Wizards not playing any type of defense, and allowing those two teams to get wide open shots, and uncontested drives to the basket.




For Wall, unfortunately, losing the game was not the only misery he was feeling Friday night.

In the mind of John Wall, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers deliberately landed the No. 2 seed past year to avoid playing the Washington Wizards. "I think they wanted to see us in the Eastern Conference Finals and we fell one game short of that".

Wall knows that the last few games hasn't been his best, so as the leader he knows what he has to do to get this team back on track.

James declined to engage when he was asked about Beal's and Wall's comments.

Smith said the Cavs didn't discuss the Wizards' barbs in the locker room before the game, but they clearly resonated to some degree. "And hopefully down the line, we'll see him again, hopefully in a seven-game series". And it's never too early to try to get in LeBron's head, although as we've seen for the last seven years, the Eastern Conference is basically won by LeBron. "We're a targeted team now".
