Cleveland Cavaliers @ Boston Celtics
The New look Cleveland Cavaliers took to the court to face Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics. The game starting with some excitement as L. James got booed each time he touched the ball. At one point in the first quarter Lebron James had Kyrie Irving guarding him and attempted a jump shot that came up short. Kyrie came down court with James covering, Kyrie did a couple of dribble moves and hit a jump shot over James. That appeared to be the highlight of the game if you were a Celtics fan.
