Wild and crazy night at The Q
The Washington Capitols' Earl Lloyd, the first African-American player in the NBA, was on hand for Wednesday's game. He took the court on Oct. 31, 1950. “The Big Cat” played 560 games in nine NBA seasons. He was part of the Cavs’ Black Heritage Celebration.
He got to watch one of the zaniest games ever played in the building. The Cavs aren't nearly this good, and the Wizards aren't nearly this bad. Both teams came into the game riding hot streaks, but the Cavs just knocked the socks off the Wizards.
This could come into play later in the season, as the two teams could be competing for a high seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The Cavs moved into fourth place on Wednesday, and have their eye on the third spot.
