COACH: John Beilein (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Collin Sexton (16.7 ppg), G Darius Garland (Rookie), F Cedi Osman (13.0 ppg), F Kevin Love (17.0 ppg, 22 games), Tristan Thompson (10.9 ppg, 10.2 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Channing Frye, G J.R. Smith.
KEY ADDITIONS: Beilein, Garland, C/F John Henson, G Kevin Porter Jr., G Dylan Windler.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Garland could accelerate the Cavs' rebuilding project. Before a left knee injury cut short his freshman season at Vanderbilt, the 6-foot-2 playmaker was ranked as the top player in his class, ahead of even Zion Williamson. His pairing with Sexton gives Cleveland a young, dynamic backcourt drawing comparisons to Portland's duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Sexton's growth as a rookie was extraordinary, and it will be interesting to see how he blends with Garland, who is more of a traditional point guard. Love's future, which is always in question, could hinge on how quickly the team's youngsters bloom. If the Cavs get the right offer, Love could be traded despite his hopes to stay with Cleveland.
OUTLOOK: Beilein's forte in college was player development and the former Michigan coach appears to be an ideal fit for Cleveland's youth movement. He'll push the Cavs and make sure they play hard, and Love and Thompson will give the squad invaluable leadership. Injuries have sidetracked Love the past few seasons, but the 31-year-old feels physically refreshed and is committed to showing his young teammates what it takes. It's going to be another long season in Cleveland, but there appears to be a promising future.
COACH: Scott Brooks (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ish Smith (8.9 ppg with Detroit), G Bradley Beal (25.6 ppg), F Rui Hachimura (19.7 ppg with Gonzaga), F Davis Bertans (8.0 ppg with San Antonio), C Thomas Bryant (10.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Jeff Green, F Trevor Ariza, F Markieff Morris, C Dwight Howard, F Sam Dekker, F Jabari Parker, F Bobby Portis, G Tomas Satoransky.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rui Hachimura, G Ish Smith, G-F C.J. Miles, F Moe Wagner, G-F Isaac Bonga, F Davis Bertans, G-F Admiral Schofield, G Justin Robinson, G Justin Anderson, G Isaiah Thomas.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: As Washington tries to find a way forward with a mostly new roster after losing 50 games, everyone in a Wizards uniform will be judged for his possible role in the future. The most scrutiny will fall on two players: rookie Rui Hachimura, a first-round draft pick from Gonzaga, and All-Star shooting guard Bradley Beal. With Hachimura, it's about adapting to the pro game and seeing how much potential he has. With Beal, undoubtedly Washington's best player and closest thing now to a transcendent star, it's about whether he can up his level even more ... and where he will attempt to do that. Will he commit to the Wizards and will they build around him? Or will they start over even more completely by trading him?
OUTLOOK: With John Wall out for most, and maybe all, of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon, plus several other offseason injuries, and a wholesale revamping of the roster under way, new GM Tommy Sheppard knows that there is no point in aiming for any particular win total, let alone the playoffs. So instead of the sort of grand pronouncements about quantifiable goals that were so common with this club in the past, Sheppard is emphasizing the importance of development ' figuring out who can do what and who should be a part of the long-term plan. The Wizards are not going to be very good in 2019-20, but they are hoping this will be the start of moving in the right direction.
Wizards aim for defensive improvement against Cavaliers

The Washington Wizards will look to tighten up their defense when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.

The Wizards have lost four of their past five games while giving up 121 points or more in each of the losses. The lone victory in that stretch was a 115-99 home win over the Detroit Pistons.

On Wednesday, the Wizards dropped a 121-106 decision in Indiana. Washington trailed by just five points early in the third quarter before the Pacers went on a 24-4 run that effectively sealed the win.

"There was a point where we couldn't get stops," guard Bradley Beal said. "The whole second quarter and part of the third quarter hurt, too. We've got to defend better than what we did tonight."

The Wizards (2-5) are allowing 118.1 points per game, sixth worst in the NBA entering Thursday.

Beal's third 30-point performance of the season and Thomas Bryant's second 20-point, 10-rebound game of the campaign led Washington. C.J. Miles added 15 points.

The Wizards started hot, shooting 6 of 12 from 3-point range in the opening quarter, but a third-quarter cold streak was too much to overcome as they dropped their second straight road game.

"When we don't shoot the ball well, we get down on ourselves," Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. "We're not a team that doesn't play with effort, but we're a team that we have to play with that maximum effort no matter what. If you make a shot or miss a shot, you've got to get back and lock in and guard your man."

The young Cavaliers open a three-game road trip in Washington having lost three straight games.

Their latest defeat came after they threw a scare into the Boston Celtics, rallying from down 12 with 4:25 to play to within three with 1:33 left before Boston held on for a 119-113 win.

Six Cavaliers scored in double-figures on Tuesday -- led by Collin Sexton's 21-point effort, as he went 6-of-15 from the floor, including 2-of-3 from long-range.

Tristan Thompson added his sixth double-double in seven outings -- finishing with 19 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and a block. Kevin Love barely missed a sixth double-double of the year, adding 17 points, nine boards and two blocks. Cedi Osman and Jordan Clarkson tallied 12 points apiece.

"I love the fact that we're competing and we're in every game," Cavs general manger Koby Altman told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I want it to be that way. I want to go out there to compete and try to win as many games as we can with this group because those are meaningful reps for our young guys."

Thompson is averaging 16.9 points and 11.6 rebounds through seven games and is shooting 53.6 percent from the field.

One area coach John Beilein would like Cavaliers to work on coming off the loss to Boston is ball movement and making the right reads. They managed just seven assists in the first half versus Boston and rank 23rd in the NBA with 21.9 per game entering Thursday.

"I think the word would be an awareness that 'somebody is more open than I am, and then if I just pass it to him, maybe there's a closeout, we can drive or there's another guy open,'" Beilein said.
