Game 6: Cavs at Wizards
at Verizon Center
RADIO/TV: WTAM/Fox Sports Ohio
WHAT HAPPENED: The Wizards backcourt grabbed all the headlines. The Cavs backcourt grabbed the win.
Mo Williams and Boobie Gibson are becoming quite a formidable duo. They combined for 47 points on Saturday in the Cavs win at Washington.
Wizards point guard John Wall is being touted as the Rookie of the Year. It's hard to argue with that after his quick start.
He's averaging 21 points and 9.5 assists on the season. In a game against Philadelphia, he had nine steals. The kid is for real.
But so are the Cavs.
The Cavs guard were every bit as good as Washington's on Saturday.
Forward Antawn Jamison was on the inactive list for the third consecutive game with a sore left knee. He could play on Tuesday in New Jersey. That way he can take Sunday off and get treatment on his knee.
Cavs center Anderson Varejao had a record-setting night in Philadelphia with 23 points and 12 rebounds - his second career 20/10 game - as well as making all 10 field goals. He ran into shot-blocking phenom Javale McGee on Saturday. McGee blocked three shots against the Cavs.

'NICE' WORK: The Wizards' in-game promotions people have a skit they do when the opposing team is announced. For all the Cavs' starters, they show their picture and a negative stat under their name.
Here's what they had to say about the Cavs:
J.J Hickson - his 13 turnovers are second highest on the team
Jamario Moon - he's missed 80 percent of his 3-pointers
Anderson Varejao - he only has one steal on the season
Mo Williams - he only has one block on the season
Anthony Parker - he's the oldest player on the team at 35
