Jump ball: Who wins -- Wizards or Cavs?

By Washington Post Sports

This just might be the most highly anticipated game on the NBA calendar this weekend: Your Washington Wizards vs. the LeBron-less Cleveland Cavaliers. Only half-kidding. But clearly, some of you are eagerly anticipating Sunday's tipoff.

Commented MeviousMan: Who cares about the Spurs... I'm really excited to see this 'Toilet Bowl' everyone is talking about.This is the most dramatic stroy line in quite a while: Mediocrity vs. Indolence!

Added tundey: I am also looking forward to the Toilet Bowl. Unless the Cavs spoil it by beating the Clippers...don't scoff at that. The Clippers have just as bad a history of bad luck as the Wizards.

Okay, so who do you have in the game? Your thoughts are welcome, too.

If the WIZ don't win, they WILL set a record for futility. They must win the 'TOILET BOWL.'

The Toilette Bowl is going to be AWESOME. Sports writers should descend on Cleveland as-if this were the Super Bowl itself.

They are in the position to win spurs who has been on the road for a week and playing tonight aganist a runing team. If the wiz get focused , close the rebounding and inside scoring edge it is possible to pull the triger agnist the potential shamp's.

It's tied through the first three overtime periods. Then the Cavs lead through the 4tht overtime until the Wiz tie it late on a shake-and-bake 62 footer by Nick Young. Then the Wiz lead through the fifth OT until Cleveland ties it at the end on a left-handed double-reverse layup by Antawn Jamison. The game is called by David Stern due to a 1AM curfew. TV ratings are the highest all year and Stern announces the game will be finished at halftime of Game 1 of the NBA Championship Series.

You can feel the excitement in the air. This is what sports is all about. This may be one of the biggest sports events in history. I've got goose bumps.

Byron Scott is a good coach, the players have quit on the owner. NO ONE wants to play in Cleveland...the Wiz may just win.

The only way to win the toilet bowl is by losing, no? I say, we must lose the toilet bowl by winning.

The Wizards will have a better chance tonight against San Antonio since the Spurs played last night. Cleveland will be rested after their big victory and have all-star guard Mo Williams back but the real reason they will win is because they are just better than the Wizards. Moreover,if Saunders is still here after this loss, it tells you something about the direction of this franchise.

Cleveland will be out to punish the Wiz now that the pressure is off of them and they can inflict pain like it was issued to them during their losing streak...

To continue the Wiz' woes would bring joy to the Cleveland franchise...
