Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard JR Smith dismissed claims by the Washington Wizards backcourt duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal that the Cavs missed out on the top seed in the Eastern Conference past year to avoid them in the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs. "I always stand by it".
"I feel like we're the best team. I'm not gonna sit here and do that". The Cavaliers then beat the Celtics in five games. Especially, when they started off 2-8 last season, and ended up being only one game away from the Eastern Conference Finals. "I've got confidence in myself and my teammates and what we can bring to our team and what we can accomplish". They didn't want to see us in the second round.
Added Wall: "We feel like we're their biggest threat". The Wizards are doing well in transition, as you would expect with a Wall led team, and the Wall/Gortat pick-and-roll is always strong, but they are not getting a lot of points in the paint (38.2 percent of their points have come in the paint, 25th in the NBA), and they are not taking enough threes (23rd in the National Basketball Association in percentage of points from three, once garbage time stats are removed). "I think they wanted to see us in the Eastern Conference Finals and we fell one game short of that".
"Each and every night", Beal said. Also, when the game is on the line, it normally should be Wall or Beal taking that last shot.

Wall knows that the last few games hasn't been his best, so as the leader he knows what he has to do to get this team back on track.
Washington can not continue to give away games by giving up double-digit leads.
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue offered a sarcastic response to the comments following the Cavs' win: "They're right: They are the best team in the East".
"We know what type of team we are", Smith said.
