Wizards played a double overtime last night. OT tonight

Dave McMenamin

The worst four words you can hear when covering Game No. 82 of 82 with no playoff implications: And we have overtime.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 101, Wizards 101, end regulation. Are you kidding me?

Brendan Bowers

Overtime not what either team wanted #Cavs #Wizards

Rick Noland

bulls winning late. would be 3 seed and cavs' likely opponent in 2nd round

Joe Vardon

Just in from the league: If the Wizards do not attempt a 3 here, $25,000 fine coming for Randy Wittman

Chris Fedor

Shoot a three, Washington. Please

Joe Vardon

I'll just say this: The Cavs, as constructed, could not survive OT tonight

Rick Noland

this thing had better not go OT!!!!

Rick Noland

Haywood last played Feb. 26, 39 seconds vs. Golden State

Rick Noland

evan Brendan haywood playing in this one

Rick Noland

if cavs hold on, will end season by winning 34 of final 43 games

Joe Vardon

Shumpert's played 28 minutes tonight, easily the most on the Cavs

Rick Noland

Kendrick Perkins warming up for playoffs with a technical

Chris Haynes

Another amazing moment: Brendan Haywood enters the game.

Chris Haynes

I can't believe it. Iman Shumpert blew another breakaway dunk. Amazing.

Rick Noland

otto porter sprained ankle, will not return

Bob Finnan

#Wizards forward Otto Porter has a sprained L ankle and will not return

Rick Noland

other than sub starter Miller, no Cavs starters have played in second half

Bob Finnan

#Wizards 79, #Cavs 74, end third Q. Rasual Butler has 15 for Wizards

Dave McMenamin

Shump made up for that missed dunk on Monday with that one.

Bob Finnan

Cleveland Cavaliers notes: LeBron James entering playoff mode bit.ly/1FV15Al

Chris Fedor

Interesting ATL is playing the regulars so much in game against CHI. Wonder if it has anything to do with avoiding TOR, who won series 3-1?

Chris Haynes

Nothing is wrong with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and JR Smith, I'm told. This was the plan all along.

Joe Vardon

This is great. LeBron was seated in customers' seats along the baseline, in blazer and sweats. He had to move cuz of paying customers

Chris Haynes

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are making their way to the bench.

Chris Haynes

And Kyrie Irving hasn't made it out of the locker room, as well.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs have yanked all their starters for the second half. This could get real ugly in a hurry

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love and JR Smith have not made it out of the locker room for the second half.

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie, Love, Moz and J.R. start the second half on the bench. Good chance that's all we see of them tonight.

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love and JR Smith are not starting the second half for the #Cavs.

Chris Fedor

Raptors win. So unless Bulls also win, and they trail by 7 at the half, Toronto would likely be the Cavs second-round matchup.

Chris Fedor

One of my favorite things at The Q: @CavsAhmaad saying "Oh boy" subtly when guys/girls miss a shot terribly...

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs trail, 56-53, at H; @Kevin Love continues to lead everyone, 19pts, 6-12 FG, 5-6 3pt FG; @Kyrie Irving, 9pts, game-high 7asst.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs trail 56-53 at the half after trailing by as many as 15. Love 19p (5-of-6 from 3); Kyrie 9p 7a; Moz 8p. LeBron out (rest).

Bob Finnan

#Wizards 56, #Cavs 53, halftime. Cavs make up a 15-point deficit. James Jones drills a 3 at buzzer

Rick Noland

sorry, folks, not watching this one real closely. working on playoff stuff

Chris Haynes

Maybe LeBron James was right. Kevin Love is the MVP...in first half of this game. Has 19 points and 3 boards with 1:49 until intermission.

Rick Noland

cavs 2-10 without LeBron this season, looking like that will be 2-11

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs down, 28-20, after 1Q. @Kevin Love, who averaged 6.6 points in 1Q this season, leads CLE w/8pts, 3reb; Mozgov, 3-3 FG, 6pts, 2reb.

Bob Finnan

#Wizards 28, #Cavs 20, end first Q. Spunk missing from Cavs in opening quarter without LeBron James

Rick Noland

tonight's sole goal: get a sweat going and don't get hurt

Brendan Bowers

Keep thinking about how an encouraging storyline from last year's #Cavs finale was Tyler Zeller's double-double. So much has changed so fast

Chris Fedor

Hey you!! Yes, you! The #Cavs are playing the Wizards and I'm chatting. Come join me.

Dave McMenamin

As a viewer/fan of basketball, I really don't know if A.D.'s postseason baptism or Russ pulling a Penny '97 playoffs is more compelling

Bob Finnan

Mike Miller will start at small forward instead of LeBron James vs. Wizards

Rick Noland

mike miller starting for LeBron

in case you haven't heard, LeBron won't play tonight. Kyrie and all others will, Blatt said

Joe Vardon

LeBron James , 4 Wizards will sit tonight's finale. LeBron finishes with lowest PPG and RPG since rookie year bit.ly/1D48eao

Chris Fedor

Wizards are already locked into the No. 5 seed. Can't move up or down against #Cavs so their approach makes sense.

Chris Haynes

Wizards will also sit John Wall and Bradley Beal tonight vs #Cavs.

Chris Fedor

Washington will be resting John Wall, Bradley Beal, Paul Pierce & Nene. Marcin Gortat will be the only starter.

Bob Finnan

Wizards G John Wall won't play tonight

Chris Haynes

Wizards F Nene and F Paul Pierce will not play tonight vs #Cavs.

Dave McMenamin

David Blatt says the Cavs' upcoming series with Boston is "not a simple first round matchup"

Chris Fedor

#Cavs LeBron is the only player that will sit out tonight against the Wizards. Every other player will get some run.

Joe Vardon

LeBron is the only #Cav scheduled to rest against the Wizards

Sam Amico

Cavs' LeBron James to sit vs Wizards. This marks 8th straight regular-season finale he rests. Read: Things tend to go well for the man.

Chris Fedor

Blatt adds that players will be on a minutes restriction tonight vs. Washington.

Bob Finnan

LeBron Jam es won't play tonight vs. Wash

Dave McMenamin

David Blatt says Kyrie feels better and will play "a little" against Washington. LeBron will sit out.

Finally, the finale, and Celtics owner says he wanted to face LeBron in playoffs all along. Cavs-Wizards dribbles. foxsports.com/ohio/story/dri…

Chris Fedor

There are 27 outs in a game. Three in this inning. Chicago just gave one up on the bunt attempt. Brilliant.

Sam Amico

Getting lots of questions on when NBA teams open playoffs. Hear Cavs-Celtics slotted for Sunday 3:30, but not official. We'll know tonight.

Joe Vardon

Boston coach Brad Stevens wants LeBron James to pass the ball in the playoffs, but to whom? #Cavs #NBAplayoffs bit.ly/1JKzkZF

Rick Noland

game or two might be close, but Cavs in four

Sam Amico

Raptors need a win (vs Hornets) and a Bulls loss (vs Hawks) for No. 3 seed. Third seed opens playoffs vs Bucks, fourth opens with Wizards.
