Wizards hope to get up for tilt with James, Cavaliers

WASHINGTON -- If the Washington Wizards continue their trend of playing up or down to the level of their opponent, finding focus for Sunday's matchup against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers should not be a problem.

In Cleveland's 130-122 win at Washington on Nov. 3, James dazzled with 57 points, the second-most he has scored in any game during his illustrious 15-year NBA career. Scoring at that pace is not sustainable, but the four-time league MVP has kept up his stellar work and his teammates have followed.

Entering the previous meeting, the Cavaliers (22-8) were floundering at 3-5, having lost four games in a row. Soon after, they found their way with a franchise-record-tying 13-game winning streak. With Saturday's 109-100 victory against Utah, Cleveland has won 17 of 18 games.
