Perhaps one of the worst losses of the year for the Wizards came against the Cavaliers in early November. They were on national television in front of their home fans and fell to a far inferior team 113-100.
On Thursday night, the Wizards have a chance to avenge that loss in Cleveland. They'll have to contain Tristan Thompson on the offensive glass and force guards Darius Garland and Collin Sexton into contested jumpers to get the win, the latter of which shouldn't be that difficult.
But if the Wizards want to push for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, they'll need to win games they should. Here's everything you need to know to watch the game on NBC Sports Washington.
