After losing to the Celtics in seven games during the Eastern Conference semifinals, they now have the experience to make a deeper postseason run.

LeBron James - off to the worst eight-game start since his rookie season - has put the onus on the Cavs' defensive efforts.

"It's on fire right now", Wall said of the injury.

The positive to come out of the setback was that shooting guard Bradley Beal managed to find his stroke from long range, knocking down 6-of-12 3-pointers en route to a season-high 40 points.

"Probably", Beal said. "But at the end of the day, I still stand on what I say and my teammates".

It remains to be seen whether Roy can bring about some changes that will help BJP emerge stronger in West Bengal. Former Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy on Friday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in New Delhi .

The Wizards are, unsurprisingly, significantly better this season when Wall is on the court, but the on/off splits for the offense are especially staggering. You know, so there's always hype behind it. "It was a seesaw first road trip for us, but we can go back home and say, 'Hey, we made it through and we can be better next time around.' To have that type of feeling after this trip is definitely good". Probably not, considering they couldn't beat the Celtics, who the Cavs swept easily, but hey, sometimes matchups are matchups.

"Even if we win or lose or it's a great game, I think they understand what we can bring to the table", Wall said. They didn't want to see us in the second round. "And I think if you look at previous year, people might say they did or didn't". "I felt like that's the reason they didn't play us in the second round". In 2013 IN came out determined to capture the #1 seed IN the East, which they eventually did, despite imploding en route to a six game loss IN the conference finals.

"Each and every night", Beal said. "I think his impact and the way he was coming kind of gave me a stinger".
