Cavs: Even with winnable game at Wiz, opening slate is rough for J.B. Bickerstaff

In their first game out of the All-Star break and first one with J.B. Bickerstaff as their new head coach, the Cleveland Cavaliers are on the road at the Washington Wizards. Bickerstaff took over for John Beilein this week, who for some reason, is still with the organization after he was re-assigned to an unspecified role.

Though Washington is a team the Cavs beat early on in the 2019-20 season and are only 20-33, star guard Bradley Beal is going to be extremely motivated to take the Wiz to the postseason, and he and the uptempo Wiz, who are a fairly impressive 13th in offensive rating, per NBA.
