On Sunday, the Cleveland Cavaliers visit Washington, D.C. for a battle with the Washington Wizards. Cleveland will be in search of their first win in the exhibition games scheduled while the Wizards are trying to get to 3-0. The Cavs may be without several key players for today's game including the "King" LeBron James. Here's the latest Cavaliers vs. Wizards game preview including start time, matchup odds, TV channel, and live streaming options to see the game.

NBA game preview

Coming into today's matchup, the Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to win during their NBA preseason schedule.

The team is 0-2 so far, with their most recent loss coming to the Indiana Pacers 106-102. LeBron James didn't play in that particular game and isn't expected to participate tonight. The same may be said for his teammate Iman Shumpert, as both players are listed as "day-to-day."

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards are off to a 2-0 start this NBA preseason. The team defeated the Guangzhou Long-Lions in their first matchup by 30 points and then followed it up with a four-point win against the New York Knicks. All-Star John Wall led the way with 9-for-14 shooting to finish with 19 points. That performance included a vicious left-handed slam over New York's Michael Beasley showing that Wall is ready to contend this coming season.

These two teams nearly met in last postseason's Eastern Conference Finals. However, Wall and the Wizards fell in a full seven-game series to the Boston Celtics. Some analysts and fans feel that Wall and the Wizards would have given the Cavs much more trouble in that later series than Boston did. The push towards another playoff appearance for both squads will begin in over a week.

For today's game, the Vegas Insider lists the Cavaliers as underdogs by 7-1/2 to eight points on the point spread. The Wizards are the favorites, while the over/under points total is 209 points for the complete game in Washington, D.C. Sunday.
