Kyrie on Blatt: "That's his 1st NBA win. He deserves the game ball. It's his 1st time in the NBA. I call him the virgin of the NBA"

After rough opener, LeBron dominant again as Cavs best Bulls. foxsports.com/ohio/story/leb…

Game 2 socks!! Happy Halloween!! Great win !!!! instagram.com/p/u1_MgCMg5k/

LeBron: "Today was a huge step. It was something that I didn’t know that we had just right now."

Jason Lloyd

LeBron: "Today was a huge step. It was something I didn’t know if we had right now."

Dave McMenamin

LeBron James: "For me, I take pride on how I perform and last night I gave myself a F"

Chris Fedor

I love looking at the "Twitter recommendations" for follows. I rarely follow & some suggestions make me laugh knowing I will never follow

Chris Haynes

Can confirm @Brian Windhorst that Tristan Thompson will not get an extension with #Cavs. Will be a restricted free agent next summer.

Sam Amico

Update: Cavs have offered Thompson more than $48 mil. But either way, free agency not bad thing. He can test market in July, Cavs can match.

Brendan Bowers

LeBron James postgame in Chicago following Cavaliers win http://t.co/zJWLexatmk

Sam Amico

Now told Cavs not gonna go for $48 million for Tristan Thompson. It appears he will enter restricted free agency at end of season.

Sam Amico

In other Cavs news, LeBron playing at 85-90 pct, tops. Back issue robbing him of lift/explosion. Few days off expected to help significantly

Brendan Bowers

Kyrie Irving: "Emotions got the best of us last night. We know that's no excuse, so we had to come out here and play our game" #Cavs #Bulls

Sam Amico

Half hour until deadline for extension, told Cavs' talks w Tristan Thompson agent Rich Paul serious. Source: Offer worth more than $40 mil.

Chris Fedor

Since he made me tell y'all. My boy @WintersGo is covering my shift. So you are in somewhat capable hands haha. I kid Gene!!

Jason Lloyd

With about 35 minutes until deadline, #Cavs still negotiating extension for Tristan Thompson. But time is running out.

Chris Fedor

I will not be in during my normal time on @923TheFan tomorrow. 1 of my best friends is getting married & I'm in the wedding. Back next week

Brendan Bowers

Kyrie Irving presented Blatt w/ game ball for first NBA win in locker room. Team joined celebration messing up his hair, stuff like that

Chris Haynes

David Blatt was handed the ball by his players after the contest for winning his first NBA game. Kyrie Irving made sure he took the ball.

Cleveland Cavaliers get their first win of the season with a gritty road win over the Chicago Bulls ow.ly/2Q04nA

Sam Amico

Cavs' Kevin Love tells @FOXSportsOH of win vs. Bulls: "It's not always gonna be pretty. Tonight it wasn't at all." Then LeBron hugged him.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs get the first win of LeBron's second coming, take down the Bulls 114-108 in OT. LeBron w/ 36p, 8r. Kyrie 23p. Love 16 & 16. TT 16 & 13

Sam Amico

Final in OT: Cavs 114, Bulls 108. LeBron with 36 on road. Kyrie 21. Love 16 pts & 16 rebs. And this team can still get better on O.

Jason Lloyd

Final OT: #Cavs 114, Bulls 108. LBJ 36p,8r; Love 16p,16r; Irving 23p,3a; Thompson 16p,13r.

Dave McMenamin

Flashback Friday RT @cjzero Kobe back - beats Matt Barnes baseline and throws down reverse slam vine.co/v/OOKbzXBiYph

Chris Fedor

Chicago's strength was always its frontline. Andy played Taj to a draw. Tristan outplayed Noah. Gasol and Love were about even.

Chris Fedor

LeBron has 36 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists and people talking about him like he played the way he did vs. New York.

Brendan Bowers

73 points for Cavs big three (James 36, Irving 21, Love 16) #Cavs #Bulls

Sam Amico

Tristan Thompson (14 pts, 13 rebs) has saved the Cavs. He's had a great training camp, been fantastic in practice. It's showed tonight.

Dave McMenamin

Tristan Thompson with 14 pts and 13 reb as the clock ticks down to the extension deadline. He's being a bank robber for Halloween.

Chris Haynes

Tristan Thompson has been huge. That's four offensive rebounds in overtime for the kid.

Chris Fedor

Tristan on the offensive glass. Teams fight so hard to get stop the #Cavs offense and Thompson gobbles boards to get them more looks.

Jason Lloyd

Thompson with his 4th offensive rebound of overtime. They've all been huge, but that one (and dunk) gives Cavs 108-104 lead 24 secs left

Brendan Bowers

Monster putback by Tristan Thompson right there #Cavs #Bulls

Chris Fedor

Delly takes the charge. Dion probably would've been in the wrong spot, honestly.

Jason Lloyd

End 4Q: #Cavs 98, CHI 98. LBJ 28p,8r,4a; Irving 19p,3a; Love 16p,15r. CHI Rose 20p; Gasol 12p,8r. CLE 41%, 11TO; CHI 45%, 15TO

Sam Amico

Cavs-Bulls tied at 98 despite Kirk Hinrich turning into someone other than Kirk Hinrich. OT in Chicago.

Chris Fedor

Love against Noah would have been like my 4th option there.

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love misses a three at the top of the key and we're going to overtime all tied up at 98. #Cavs-Bulls.

Chris Fedor

Who takes this shot?

Chris Fedor

GREAT D there by Irving and the #Cavs I thought

Chris Fedor

I want Marion in the game on this possession.

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie gets a generous continuation call for the and-1 and we have a 98-98 tie with 27.9 seconds left in the 4th.

Chris Fedor

So many things that we want to learn about this #Cavs team and some of those things are happening tonight. Can they got a stop?

Chris Haynes

All tied at 98 here between the #Cavs and Bulls with 27.9 seconds remaining. Chicago will have the ball after this timeout.

Dave McMenamin

New story: LeBron says his lasting memory from his big return game to Cleveland will be those 8 pesky turnovers es.pn/1E8EcFC

Brendan Bowers

Bummer for Cavs fans that Kirk Hinrich turned into Reggie Miller just now

Chris Haynes

Back-to-back turnovers from #Cavs leads to two straight threes by Kirk Hinrich. Bulls up 96-91 with 1:15 left to play.

Chris Fedor

Chicago's defense has picked up here. Causing all kinds of issues for the #Cavs

Chris Haynes

Derrick Rose left the game late in the third quarter and never returned. He is not on the bench.

Chris Haynes

Bulls now say they meant Derrick Rose is questionable to return with a left ankle sprain. Not Taj Gibson. Not sure how you mix that one up.

Chris Haynes

This is one heck of potential Eastern Conference Finals preview. These two teams are neck and neck.

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: #Cavs 78, CHI 69 LBJ 24p,4r; Love 12p,13r; Irving 13p; Thompson 10p,7r. CHI Rose 20p,4r,4a; Gasol 10p,7r. CLE 45%, 8TO; CHI 44% 11TO

Brendan Bowers

From skyview press row seats at United Center you appreciate Cavs new humungotron even more #Cavs #Bulls #humungotrons

Jason Lloyd

After missing 9 of his first 10 shots, Love has now made each of his last 3 with Kyrie, LBJ off floor

Chris Fedor

Kyrie has been too good tonight for the Cavs to have him on the bench with four fouls. Gotta take the gamble, Blatt.

Chris Fedor

Blatt SCREAMING at Dion to get back on D after Dion's awful shot.

Sam Amico

When Cavs get D rebound and get out and run, no one anywhere has chance. That's just the truth.

Chris Fedor

Chicago shot 51 percent in the first half and trailed by 6.

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs crushing Bulls in rebounding 27-15. Their 12 off rebs have resulted in 16 second-chance points

Sam Amico

Cavs 58-52 over Bulls on road at half. LeBron with 19, or 2 more than last night. Tristan (8 pts, 7 rebs) playing big off bench.

Jason Lloyd

Half: #Cavs 58, Bulls 52. LBJ 19p,3r,2a; Irving 11p,1a; Love 6p,7r; Thompson 8p,7r. CHI Rose 18p,2a; Gasol 8p,4r. CLE 45%, 5TO; CHI 51%, 6TO

Chris Haynes

End of the 1st half. #Cavs on top of Bulls 58-52. James 19 points, 3 rebounds. Rose 18 points, 3 rebounds. Irving 11 points.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs lead 58-52 at the half. LeBron with 19 pts. Rose with 18 pts. We got a good one.

Chris Fedor

Rebounds: #Cavs 27. Bulls 15. Cavs were outrebounded 35-33 by the Knicks last night.

Chris Haynes

LeBron James and Derrick Rose going blow for blow. This is NBA basketball!!!

Chris Haynes

LeBron James has it going. He's attacking the paint, not settling for the jumper. It's opening up his entire game. Has 17 points on 8-15.

Dave McMenamin

LeBron James has 17 pts already, matching his total last night. He's shooting 8-for-15 (was 5-for-15 last night).

Dave McMenamin

LeBron 15 - Derrick 15. Cavs 48 - Bulls 42

Chris Haynes

LeBron James almost got undercut on that fastbreak layup. That was a dangerous play.

Chris Fedor

Marion guarding Rose now. Another value of having The Matrix.

Dave McMenamin

With Kawhi Leonard's high school teammate Tony Snell cutting his hair, pretty sure Kawhi is the last guy left in the NBA with cornrows.

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie changed out of the pumpkins.

Chris Fedor

This is the Tristan Thompson the Cavs need to stabilize that second unit.

Dave McMenamin

LeBron James clearly looking to make a statement after last night. Took 10 of the Cavs' 23 shots in the 1st Q. Has 11 pts. CLE up 28-27

Chris Haynes

End of 1st Q. #Cavs lead Bulls 28-27. James 11 points on 5-10 from the floor. Rose 9 points on 4-of-6.

Jason Lloyd

End 1Q: #Cavs 28, Bulls 27. LBJ 11p; Love 5p,4r; Varejao 6p,3r. CHI Rose 9p; Gasol 6p,3r. CLE 48%, 3TO; CHI 58%, 2TO

Chris Fedor

Make that four offensive boards for TT...counting for 10 points.

Chris Fedor

Three offensive rebounds for Tristan Thompson now. One more board than he had last night. Have led to 8 points.

Jason Lloyd

LeBron coming out firing tonight, looking to eat first. He has 11 points and has taken 9 shots, more than double anyone else. Rightfully so

Chris Haynes

That's two times that offensive rebounds by Tristan Thompson has led to three-point field goals.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs-Knicks game on TNT on Thursday earned a 2.9 U.S. household rating, 27.2 in Cleveland market, 7.0 in New York

Jason Lloyd

A Bulls team that allegedly struggles scoring is on pace for 30 in the first quarter. They're shooting 64%

Chris Haynes

Derrick Rose just blew right by Matthew Dellavedova on the baseline for the and-1. That's a tough guard for him. For anybody.

Brendan Bowers

Cavs at Bulls #Chicago http://t.co/4ozXwfuMBm

Bob Finnan

Cleveland Cavaliers, Anderson Varejao agree to extension bit.ly/1u3vLcG

Jason Lloyd

Noah going hard at Love, who has missed his first 3 shots. Noah swatted one of them at the rim

Mike Miller played 3 minutes last night, didn't play until 3Q. He's in halfway through 1Q tonight.
