Time for LeBron to take this thing over. Wave off the plays and go. He's the best player on the court. #CavsOpener

Dave McMenamin

One part about the Cavs' game already clicking in midseason form: Those Love-to-LeBron outlet passes.

Chris Fedor

WOW! Melo a make. Love grabs ball through the net and launches 75-footer to James on the run for an easy layup. Insane play #CavsOpener

Dave McMenamin

Geraldo Rivera was just shown on the video board as one of the celebrity guests. Yep, I'm not in L.A. anymore.

Dave McMenamin

LeBron gets a straight-away 3 to go from the top of the key off the catch and shoot. Cavs still down 53-51 however.

#Cavs squander 11-point lead, allow Knicks to tie score at 38

Chris Haynes

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.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs played 4 out, 1 in (Varejao) on offense that last possession

Sam Amico

Justin Beiber on Jumbotron, booed loudly. Cleveland just keeps getting things right.

Bob Finnan

LeBron James has 4 turnovers in 13 minutes

Chris Fedor

I wonder what Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett are up to - Signed, No one in Cleveland #CavsOpener.

Sam Amico

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.

Chris Fedor

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.

Chris Fedor

They show Justin Bieber on Humongotron. Hearty boos!!! They show Usher. Everyone cheers #CavsOpener

Chris Haynes

That doesn't look like the triangle offense out there.

Chris Fedor

LeBron checks out. He is 1-for-5 with three turnovers. #CavsOpener

Chris Haynes

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.

Jason Lloyd

LeBron's first basket came off a 75-foot pass from Kevin Love. Carmelo grabs him, but LeBron powered it in with the foul

Dave McMenamin

Love finds LeBron with a 70-ft outlet pass. James scores the and-1 layup after getting mugged by Melo. Love, LeBron and Dion flex. Fun stuff

Bob Finnan

That was a 70-foot outlet pass by Love, who flexed his muscles afterward

Chris Fedor

Now LeBron has scored. Outlet from Kevin Love. Foul. Didn't matter. And one. #CavsOpener

Chris Fedor

Everyone in the #Cavs starting lineup has scored but one guy...LeBron james

Jason Lloyd

Players are so juiced up Kyrie Irving already got his dunk for the year.

Sam Amico

Well, this is over. Bring on the Bulls.

Those intros were incredible. Goosebumps #CavsOpener

Chris Haynes

LeBron James does the chalk toss and the crowd goes nuts. The King is officially back in Cleveland. #cavsopener

Bob Finnan

More than 300 media credentials issued for tonight's game. I feel like there's more here tonight than there was for 2007 NBA Finals

Dave McMenamin

Been covering the NBA for 10 years. Playoffs, Finals, All-Star Games, etc. That was by far the best pregame presentation I've ever seen.

The #Cavs' "Humongatron" blows me away. I've never seen a "scoreboard" quite like it. It's comparable, I'm told, to the Rockets' scoreboard

Dave McMenamin

Saw Justin Bieber go out of his way to dap up a portly gentleman wearing a bright pink three-piece suit before the game. It's all happening

LeBron is blasting Bone Thugs n Harmony in the locker room. I would tell you what song but my Bones knowledge doesn't extend that far

Chris Haynes

#Cavs @LeBron James focused. He's bumping Cleveland's own Bone Thugs N Harmony with a mean-mug on his face. Knicks in trouble! #cavsopener
