On a night where the new Cavs players made their home debut and Larry Nance Jr learned he will have the opportunity to wear his father's number, it's the self-proclaimed king LeBron James who tried to carry the Cavs in the 4th quarter. But James' effort was not enough as the Cavs fall to the Wizards 110-103. 

LeBron James scored the Cavs last 14 points in the 4th quarter. Despite LeBron's 4th quarter efforts and leading both teams with 32 points, the Wizards outscored LeBron and the Cavs 22-14 to close out the game. With the Wizards win against the Cavs, Washington is now only a half game behind Cleveland for 3rd place in the Eastern Conference standings.

Not all was bad for the Cavs tonight as Larry Nance Jr learned he will soon wear the famous #22 jersey, a number previously worn by his father Larry Nance Sr. More details on the number celebration can be found here

Cavs don't have much time to think about this loss as they will fly to Memphis for their game Friday night.
