Seen and heard last night at Gund Arena in Cleveland:

GLARING OMISSION Now that the participants for the All-Star Game in Philadelphia have been named, it is clear that perhaps the most glaring omission is that of Cleveland point guard Andre Miller.

Miller leads the league in assists (10.3) and there is no one on this abominable team to whom he should trust passing the ball and also leads the league in points-and-assists double doubles.

Miller did not seem overly perturbed over the omission, although his disappointment did at times seep through. "It's not that big of an issue with me," he said. "I would have liked to have been in it. But we hurt ourselves because we're not winning. I think if you look around, you'll see that there are guys who are having good years and playing for better teams. Winning means a lot in that case."

The Cavaliers went into the game with the Wizards having lost 12 of 13 games.

NAGGING INJURY Wizards reserve point guard Tyronn Lue is nursing a hip flexor injury that has hampered his play more than he is letting on, according to an insider.

PLAYING FROM THE FRONT The Wizards entered the game 21-0 this season in games when they are leading or tied for the lead after three quarters.
