Varejao's outlet pass was more the Jay Cutler variety, missing LeBron and flying out of bounds.
Wiggins a little jittery in his home debut. 0-3 in 9 minutes
Panthers fail to score points off Saints turnover again. Huge break. Still scoreless with 2:36 left in 1st
All of the bad passes are in this game.

Chandler Parsons: 0-of-3. Rest of Mavs: 10-of-10.
I'll be at Clippers/Thunder tonight - but after my girl's basketball practice
Carmelo Anthony could have been a Chicago Bull
Doc on whether team is emotionally charged tonight, considering OKC knocked them out of the playoffs: "They should be."
Tyson Chandler is dunking off of alley-oops as often as I've been doing Vines lately.
Shane Larkin penetrated and passed to an open man on the wing. It was the right play but the open person was a referee. Turnover.
Dirk shaking folks out of their sneakers. And Tyson gets another alley-oop dunk from Jameer.
Cavs played 4 out, 1 in (Varejao) on offense that last possession
Rodney Hood's been looking forward to playing against fellow Mississippian Monta Ellis. The Jazz rookie is on the floor with him now.
Chandler Parsons had the Mavs' first miss of the game — a 3-point attempt five-plus minutes in.
Keenan just blew up Cotchery to force incompletion. Big time play
Mavs' first miss was a Chandler Parsons 3 that rimmed out at the 6:49 mark. Hit first 8 shots from the floor.
There you go. A stop
Doc on Ballmer's pep-talk before game: "He was Ballmer-relaxed."
Quite a day. Heat fans irritated at me. Had a Cavs fan tweet that he hoped I got jumped 2nite. And now the Beliebers are after me.
The Mavs have hit their first eight shots to take a 20-11 lead over the Jazz. I haven't seen shooting like this since Media Training Camp.
You can tell Cavs fans packed in the Q are just waiting for LeBron to take over.
Thanks, CBS, for providing that picture (yuck).
Saints D can get off quickly. 3rd and 9 for CAR
Five minutes into this game and the Jazz have yet to get a single defensive stop....wow
Justin Beiber on Jumbotron, booed loudly. Cleveland just keeps getting things right.
Cavs offense looked cleaner in preseason than tonight. Some overpassing. Tough to evaluate anyone's defense against the Knicks.
"I love the kid down in Charlotte (Haverill, Mass. native) Noah Vonleh.He's going to be a very good player in this league." -Charles Barkley
I assume all those preseason 35-win predictions for the Jazz are being recalculated as we speak.
Caron Butler has training camp legs. Or maybe just 34-year-old ones. Needs to score before the month ends.
LeBron James has 4 turnovers in 13 minutes
What did Zach LaVine say when he was drafted?
Actually LaVine getting Martin, not Mo. Flip wants Williams with the rook on most occasions
One of the top 4 teams in the country, hahaha. Right. Sagarins computer knew the truth.
Caron Butler is struggling to score. 0-3, last shot an airball
LeBron's been kind of bad tonight.
Zach LaVine getting ready to make his NBA debut with Mo picking up 2 fouls
Nothing makes people crazier than politics, sports and religion and all three are represented in LeBron's Beats commercial.
Think the Mavs are happy to have Tyson Chandler back? Two early lobs for dunks. Mavs up 11-4 early. Quin Snyder calls timeout.
Quin Snyder took a quick timeout after Dallas jumped ahead of the Jazz 11-4.
DE Kony Ealy hurt on that last run by Ingram. Another 1st down on 5 yd rush and 5 yd CAR penalty

Anyone else wanna throw Tyson Chandler a lob? Jameer Nelson and Chandler Parsons already fed the big fella in the first few minutes.
Jazz' first five defensive possessions? not good
Lakers list same 5 probable starters for tomorrow night vs. Clippers - Lin/Kobe/Wes/Boozer/Hill
I watch LeBron workout in commercials more than I workout.
Really can't wait for Knicks/Lakers this season.
The Knicks should be all 29 foes' opening-night competition.
So 4 guys in this game played for Kevin Boyle at St. Pat's and Danny Hurley at St. Ben's: Irving, Dalembert, JR & Thompson.
Jazz' first three defensive possessions? not good
NBA commissioner Adam Silver is here for tonight's game.... or for Fergie. Not sure.
Flip was a big fan of KCP in the draft. He's off to a nice start. 8 pts on 4-6.
KCP looking like summer league KCP. Which is a good thing. 4-6 FG. Going to the basket
It would be really interesting to hold a draft of the top 50 UL and UT players and see how that would break down.
Shawn Marion just put up a shot that screamed, "So what if I miss, it's not like we're gonna lose." He missed badly. Cavs up 9.
Charles Oakley looking at Wear like he's wondering whether he owes him money http://t.co/gLxoSqtuPy
I'm trying not to make any comparisons, but, you know.
LeBron is just 1-of-6 to start this game.
Can we just get Travis that video of him defending LeBron and call it a night.
New Jersey well-repped in this game: Kyrie Irving played at St. Pat's JR Smith & Tristan Thompson at St. Ben's Dion Waiters at Life Center
I just saw a Travis Wear/Amar’e side pick and roll.
Tyson Chandler also got a loud ovation. But Dirk Nowitzki got the loudest ovation of them all.
The speed and playmaking ability of Charlie Strong's former team is striking. Both sides of the ball.
Knicks have a lot of -- 'oh, that's where they play now' - guys on their roster.
LeBron was 1-for-5 in the first quarter. What a disaster The Decision II has turned out to be.
Only complaint with the Cavs blue unis are the white socks -- gotta go black or navy
"And with the fourth pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks select..."
Joel Anthony lives!!!!
And just like Panthers drive stalls at NO39. Punt.
J.J. Barea just got a loud ovation during pregame introductions.
Cole Aldrich in game. Travis Wear in game. Safely you can say Fisher has no idea about his rotation. Not for a while.
You think Derek Fisher wishes he were sopping up minutes for a banged up Thunder team right now?
David Blatt has said that he will likely have one of the Big Three on the court at all times. So far, he's held true.
Cohesion b/t LeBron, Love and Kyrie quicker because his two new running mates easily took lesser roles. Bosh and Wade had success w/o him
Sixers exercised options on Noel, Carter-Williams and Wroten.
3 plays. 3 str 1st downs as CAR reaches NO 40
Thabeet will play for former Orlando Magic GM Otis Smith with expansion Grand Rapids Drive in hopes of playing his way back to the NBA ASAP
Crowd at the Q just booed Spike Lee on the "humungotron" videoboard as lustily as they'd booed Justin Bieber a while back.
One non-NBA note: For the only nite in my life, tonight I root for Petrino.
Funny this is the home debut of Andrew Wiggins and nobody knows it.
Where is Johnny Football?
Pierre Sarr, a 6-foot-7 wing out of New Jersey power Roselle Catholic, has committed to Monmouth. That's a big get for King Rice and staff
Hawks exercised Dennis Schroder's team option.
They wanted to KILL LeBron on Dec.2, 2010. To see this now ... I'm sure there's a precedent for this, but I've never been to Pyongyang.
To the local media the Clippers are still like that hiddin unknown speakeasy that makes the best drinks in town. http://t.co/p0EKCjhTvk
CAR went for homerun ball on 1st play. Incomplete to Benjiman
Kevin Love puts up 12 points, 7 boards, and 3 assists in his first quarter as a Cavalier.
Back spasms again for J.R. Smith, according to Tina C. Came out of game. Never had real back issues before preseason.
"I don't know why y'all keep showing the Lakers? This ain't the 2000s anymore. Quit showing the Lakers TNT! ESPN!" - Charles Barkley.
How will LeBron James & Kyrie Irving adjust to playing in an offense built around Kevin Love? *sarcasm*
What are Kevin Love's MVP odds?
Cavs lead 25-18 after 1. Kevin Love has 12 pts and 7 reb. LeBron looks a little tight, shooting 1-for-5.
JR is hurt. Holding right side/back. My wifi is spotty. Bieber is sitting between Usher & my pastor. And LeBron plays for the Cavs again.
David Blatt didn't appear especially pleased with that shot from Kyrie Irving.
Amico on Kevin Love: "He'll have the hardest time adjusting." Kevin Love's first quarter as a Cav: Game-high 12 pts, game-high 7 rebounds.
Justin Bieber gets no love in CLE. Was mercilessly booed as his image came up on the Humongotron. Crowd cheered for Usher, Michael Strahan
Rubio and Brewer: 4-7. Rest of Wolves: 2-11
So when does Taylor Swift come on the court?
Kevin Love playing a bit harder tonight than he did in Minnesota finale vs Jazz last year.
Just scooped Travis Wear in wack fantasy.
That pass must have been a missile at Stills. It caremed a long way.
J.R. Smith just left the game in pain. It could be the back that hampered him in the preseason.
Untie JR Smith's laces. He'll laugh.
Justin Bieber in the house.
Kevin Love with 10 points, seven rebounds, and 3 assists. The first quarter isn't over.
Justin Bieber, Usher and Michael Strahan are sitting together. I normally sit with Berman, Herring and Popper. They win.
Gotta love any play where a fat guy gets to run with the ball.
Justin Bieber just got booed here. Usher was cheered. Then Usher hugged Bieber. Boos. I think this is universal.
Justin Bieber loudly booed during a timeout.
The good people of Cleveland loudly boo Justin Bieber when he was shown on the jumbotron.
We're not in Miami anymore. Justin Bieber gets booed when shown on the screen.
Gotta love Chuck, calling out TNT and ESPN, one network he works for, for showing the Lakers.
That doesn't look like the triangle offense out there.
JR seems to break every rule that was ever written involving the triangle.
Ah yes, the immortal Travis Wear/Amar’e Stoudemire/Samuel Dalembert front court.
3rd and 6. Graham and Stills back in
I respect K. Love going with the cutoff shirt under the jersey. That was my move.
JR seems to break every rule that was ever written involving the triangle offense.
Cavs making an effort to get Love touches in the post. Hw was a little annoyed at how many jumpers he was being asked to shoot in preseason.
Blake Griffin drilling 5 straight Corner 3s during his pregame shoot.
Drummond starts off 0-4, then Jennings finds him for two layups, including a lob-layup
Travis Wear getting some early minutes. Fisher mentioned as an option on the wing during pregame.
Saints reach red zone on an 18 yard catch by @thejimmygraham.
Almost cruel Melo has to play the Bulls and Cavs in his first two games after not signing with the Bulls to challenge the Cavs.
Jason Smith, who was rather horrible last night, has bagged 2 straight mid-range jumpers. That's why they signed him.
LEBRON IS STRONGEST HULK THERE IS. http://t.co/szFstxc1xE
Two of the guys who carried a large load Sunday, are factoring early. Ingram and now Cooks
LeBron starts 1-for-5 with 3 turnovers. Love already at 8/7/3, again mostly standing out by 3-point line.
Love is going to get all the open 3s he wants this season.
After tonight's win, Kevin Love will be 169 games under .500 for his career.
Jacque Vaughn receives a technical foul -- likely for wanting a carry on Marcin Gortat. Vaughn's right on that one.
The cult of personality created by LeBron's manipulation of mass media for his return to Cleveland will be taught in J-Schools one day.
We make a big deal about the Lakers but the Knicks also have 20 more national TV games this season.
Marv once worked for Knicks. As did Thibodeau & Steve Clifford. How's that for a triangle. And they were all dismissed by...the Great Kazoo
2:43 left in the first quarter, the Knicks have 7 rebounds as a team. Kevin Love has 7 rebounds by himself.
Only hope for Knicks and Lakers this year is if they merge.
Not sure what shape of offense the Knicks are running, but it's not much of a triangle
Love is eating in this offense. Easy looks on offense, baseline screen for a corner 3 for him early, outlet passes. Too easy.
Gonna be painful watching NYK take this many midrange jumpshots all yr, especially when you consider how good they were from 3 not long ago
Pekovic has traveled more times in two games than the entire league was whistled for last year, I think.
Saints will start at their own 20.
Kind of weird to watch LeBron play this way. He's so exited it's messing him up.
Can't wait to hear the crowd pop when Brendan Haywood checks in.
Knicks are 6-for-18, missing open looks all over the place, and there have been many possessions with no triangle being run.
I know we're only a few games in but I'm having a difficult problem deciding on who's worst between the Lakers and Knicks.
Mid-range jumper, brick, rebound, outlet, fast break. There, I’ve summarized the next three quarters.
"I don't need shooters, I need MAKERS."
Kevin Love: 8 pts, 7 rebs, 3 assts, 2-2 3s in 9 minutes. Whew.
Kevin Love showing why he is the best outlet passer in the NBA. Crisp, accurate passes that push fast breaks or draw fouls.
LeBron a bit out of control so far, so pepped to be back. 3 turnovers for James but Cavs lead 21-12.
"It must be cool to know that you're the best basketball player in the world." -- my 8-yr-old, accurately.
Who's hurt for the Knicks right now? This can't be their actual roster right?
Looks like the Knicks have given up on the triangle until the day Marc Gasol signs.
I thought Corey Brewer might be end to end the fastest guy in the league...KCP might be up there with him
LeBron is so good that Dion Waiters now makes a high percentage of his shots.
8 points, 5 boards, and 2 assists for Kevin Love in his first 8 minutes as a Cavalier.
Kevin Love would probably be the best quarterback in the NFL, too.
Kevin Love looks like a natural fit on this Cavs roster. So hard to defend someone w/ his skill set playing alongside LeBron.
This offense isn't fair.
I feel like every Knicks fast break ends up in a Shane Larkin pull-up jumper.
Wiggins with a couple nice interior passes. Both teams struggling shooting. 8-24 combined
Man, the Cavs are gonna be fun.
So Kevin Love upgrades from Corey Brewer to LeBron James as wideout for his long outlets. Melo mighta wrapped up Brewer. Not this guy.
My guess on why Moe isn't playing is that Vaughn is looking for offense from Ben Gordon and Willie Green.
Kevin Love grabs the defensive board, then outlets to LeBron who catches the ball at the opposite three point line.
Kevin Love throws the ball downfield with such authority that Al Davis just returned from the grave to sign him for the Raiders.
