Tim Bontemps

Nets managing to hang around in this one, & go into 4th trailing 74-71. Joe Johnson has 19 to lead Nets, while Mike Miller has 21 for Cavs.

Mike Mazzeo

Let's see: Deron is out, the #Cavs scored 15 straight points after that and Cleveland's Big Three is 10-for-33 from the field. #Nets down 3.

Chris Haynes

#Cavs F Mike Miller has a game-high 21 points on 7-8 from downtown. This is looking like a brilliant coaching decision for David Blatt.

Chris Haynes

Deron Williams suffered a strained right calf and will not return against #Cavs tonight.

Bob Finnan

Former Cavs swingman Sergey Karasev has a career-high 12 points in the first half for the Nets

Brendan Bowers

First person to purchase and receive a pair of #Kyrie1's at tonight's #Cavs game is Jeff Marous of Willoughby http://t.co/r0gEjXOiB6

Lenn Robbins

The #Nets attempted just 3 foul shots in the first half, making one. The #Cavs were 16-of-19 from the stripe..settling for perimeter shots

Devin Kharpertian

The Cavs went on a 15-0 run after Williams got hurt.

Sam Amico

Nets say Deron Williams has a strained right calf and will not return. Cavs lead 54-49 at half.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 54, Nets 49, halftime. Cavs close first half with 15-4 run. Showing signs of life on defense. Mike Miller has 15 points in 1st start

Lenn Robbins

#Nets go to the half trailing 54-49. #Cavs. @TheJoeJohnson7 w 14. Sergey Karasev w 12. @LeBron James w 10 points and 5 assists..

Jason Lloyd

Lenn Robbins

#Nets having 1 of those qrts. Only 12 points. #Cavs have surged to a 52-45 lead..It started when @Mason Plumlee was called for his 3rd foul

Chris Fedor

#Cavs defense has picked up here in the second quarter. Have held Nets to 12 points, with one minute left

Bob Finnan

It might have something to do with his can't miss. Miller 5 of 6 from behind arc. Cavs' first lead, 48-45, 2 minutes left in first half

Chris Haynes

Judging off recent history, #Cavs should want Deron Williams to return. Lost to Pelicans (Anthony Davis out) and Hawks (Jeff Teague out).

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs GM David Griffin loved Karasev in that draft, but Cavs bundled him over summer to clear cap space for LeBron's return

Chris Haynes

#Cavs F LeBron James has surpassed Hall of Famer Charles Barkley for 23rd on the NBA's all-time scoring list. That's 23,757 points at 29.

Lenn Robbins

Sergey Karasev, coming back to Cleveland with a vengeance. Sometimes the trades you don;t make are the best #Nets #Cavs

Jason Lloyd

Sergey Karasev, whom the #Cavs drafted in 2013, sets new career high with 12 pts before halftime.

Bob Finnan

Cleveland Cavaliers notes: Mike Miller replaces Shawn Marion in starting lineup bit.ly/1HcIqLW

Devin Kharpertian

Cavaliers force turnover, try to start fast break, hit LeBron with an outlet pass in the face.

Lenn Robbins

A father and son show their love here in the heartland of #america as the national anthem plays #nets #cavs http://t.co/LThlVcDIyp

Bob Finnan

Nets 33, #Cavs 26, end first Q. Nets shooting 67% from field. I thought Cavs worked on their 'D' yesterday at practice. Still non-existent

Devin Kharpertian

Nets lead Cavs 33-26 after 1, are getting great looks. Cavs buoyed by Mike Miller hitting 3 3’s.

Chris Haynes

Good thing David Blatt started Mike Miller (3-3 from three) or #Cavs would have been down much more. Nets lead after one, 33-26.

Jason Lloyd

End 1Q: Nets 33, #Cavs 26. James 8p,5a; Miller 9p; Love 2p,4r; Irving 2p,0a. BKN Karasev 9p; Johnson 7p. CLE 42%, 4TO; BKN 67%, 3TO

Chris Fedor

#Cavs Kyrie Irving is 1-for-5 tonight. Should I ask him about his form again? haha

Rod Boone

End of 1st Q: #Nets 33, #Cavs 26: Sergey has 9 points for #Nets. Mike Miller has 9 points for Cleveland, knocking down 3 three-poionters.

Lenn Robbins

Don't worry #Cavs fans, @Dion Waiters has yet to check in. The defense will be much better ..#Nets with 33 pts in the 1st Q. Lead 33-26

Sam Amico

Nets lead Cavs 25-21 but have made LeBron pretty mad. Will be interesting to see what develops now.

Lenn Robbins

A father and son show their love for one another during the playing of the national anthem here in the heartland of #america #cavs #nets

Scott Cacciola

At Nets/Cavs. I don't know what @Andrew Keh is talking about. The Nets look amazing.

Chris Haynes

#Cavs picking up where they left off in that Atlanta blowout. Defense. Is. Still. An. Issue. Nets 7-9 from floor and lead 16-7.

Lenn Robbins

Timeout #Cavs..#Nets take a 16-7 lead.Wonder if Lionel Hollins has discovered and disabled @LeBron James on/off switch .The King will come

Chris Fedor

So....looks like we are going to have to add Sergey Karasev to my growing list of season-highs vs. Cavs.

Rod Boone

Sergey has 7 points against his old team already. #Nets lead #Cavs 13-7 early.

Chris Fedor

I'm chatting LIVE on cleveland.com during Cavs and Nets. Come join me. cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

KG, who on his day off in Cleveland on Thursday got in some shooting, knocks down the first jumper of the game. #Nets up 4-0 #Cavs

Lenn Robbins

Hard to top The #Cavs pregame introductions. @LeBron James proclaims, "It's good to be home!' Bam! Fireworks. All of Ohio cheering #Nets

Will be talking NBA trade rumors with Jeff Phelps and @CampyRussell on Cavaliers Live pregame. 7 pm ET on @FOXSportsOH.

Lenn Robbins

After a mediocre 1st half, @LeBron James told Lionel Hollins it was time to go to work. He scored 9 of 18 in the 3rd q of a #Cavs win #Nets

Brendan Bowers

Cavs ball boys all wearing unreleased #Kyrie1's at #Cavs / #Nets game tonight #Nike

Sam Amico

Got flat on way to Cavs-Nets, security wouldn't let me in media parking and I forgot my press pass. Other than that, night's been smash hit.
