Here are the five best plays or moments from the Wizards' 106-99 loss to the Cavs on Sunday night...
1. The Cavs and Wizards aren't much of a heated rivalry anymore, but early on in this one Kelly Oubre, Jr. and J.R. Smith had an interesting moment.
For some reason Smith decided to push Oubre to the ground and he earned a technical foul for doing so. Oubre then did some pushups when he hit the ground. Oubre has a tendency to do pushups midgame, but this was probably the best instance of them:
2. It was another game for the Wizards so of course Mike Scott scored a bunch of points, as he's been prone to do in recent weeks. Scott dropped 19 points with four rebounds and four assists.
This is when he started to get hot, when he hit threes on back-to-back possessions in the first half:

3. It was John Wall's third game back since he recovered from a swollen left knee and once again he didn't put up his usual numbers. Wall was limited to 15 points and six assists, though he did have 10 rebounds.
Wall's best play was a block. He stuffed Kevin Love on a play you just don't see very often from point guards:

4. LeBron James (20 points, 15 assists, 12 rebounds) had his fourth triple-double in his last five games, but he didn't shoot very well overall. He was just 8-for-23 and for him that is considered an off-night.
This play in particular made him look out of sorts. Everyone knows LeBron sometimes travels, but twice on the same play?
5. Oubre ended up having a good game with 11 points and eight rebounds and this was his best play, a two-handed putback slam:
