Basketball: Cleveland Cavaliers off to fresh start

Basketball: Cleveland Cavaliers off to fresh start

Former Cavs star Kyrie Irving added 18 points and five assists, and he shared a nice hug with James after the game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers got a brief scare in the first quarter Sunday when forward LeBron James left with an apparent injury to his right knee.

They first traded Channing Frye, Isaiah Thomas, and their 2018 first-round pick to Los Angeles Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

LeBron James and his new look Cleveland Cavaliers were in Boston to take on the Celtics Sunday afternoon.

"We were really anxious that what was going on on the floor and our culture in the building, we were marching a slow death", Altman said of the decision to revamp the roster.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were among the most active teams before the trade deadline and received the approval of their lone superstar and face of the organization.

The Cavs had to do something, especially with James, who is in the final year of his contract, going through the motions.

"It's still gonna take some time, even though this is an impressive win on the road, but that's a good start".


"The small little doses that I was able to play with Jae and IT, I wish it could have been better than it was", James said. Being out seven months is hard for anybody.

IT'S just one game, but the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers just got off to the best start possible.

Just last week James expressed doubts about the Cavs' commitment to fixing their roster.

LeBron James says he's excited about the new players added by the Cavaliers following a whirlwind of trades before the NBA's deadline. "I've always felt like that's where his heart and his mind was and I think it's going to be great for him".

And Altman completed the stunning midseason renovation by trading Dwyane Wade back to Miami, where he'll finish his career with the franchise that drafted him and the one he put on the map by winning three titles.

Terry Rozier led the Celtics off the bench with 21 points, nine rebounds and five assists. Friday was no different with the Hawks using the Cavs recent overnight rebuild and Lebron's impending free agency. There has been speculation that this will be his final season in Cleveland. He has not given the Cavs a long-term commitment in order to keep pressure on owner Dan Gilbert to continue to upgrade the roster.

He doesn't have any doubts now.
