"We have an opportunity to be very good and then you see some of the lulls that we have and it's just hard on our team right now", James told reporters.

LeBron James - off to the worst eight-game start since his rookie season - has put the onus on the Cavs' defensive efforts. I also enjoy former Wizard Paul Pierce's face, reminiscent of the Grinch, almost, in his mischievous upturned mouth corners.

The offenses for both teams tell a different story.

Beal's comments on The Jump on Friday weren't as pointed as they were in May, but he echoed the same extreme confidence in his team.

"Probably", Beal said. "But at the end of the day, I still stand on what I say and my teammates". "That's one of the best teams to be assembled". Then LeBron went back to Cleveland, immediately transforming the Cavs into the conference kings.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue offered a sarcastic response to the comments following the Cavs' win: "They're right: They are the best team in the East". Probably not, considering they couldn't beat the Celtics, who the Cavs swept easily, but hey, sometimes matchups are matchups. In 2013 IN came out determined to capture the #1 seed IN the East, which they eventually did, despite imploding en route to a six game loss IN the conference finals. But I think they didn't want to see us, period, because we would have seen them in the second round. "It was something that we worked on since that last game (a 122-116 loss to the Phoenix Suns) and we came out here and knew that they were a team that was struggling and they came out and played well".

"We have been having great spurts where we lock down and play great defense", DeRozan said.

Beal countered the Wizards have to "be on our P's and Q's to the T". "So teams are really coming after us and giving us their A game".
