The Cavs D gives up 37 pts in the 1st Q, allowing Dallas to shoot 57.1 pct from the field (including 5-8 from 3). CLE trails by 11.
WOAH! Chandler Parsons slammed it on LeBron James. That was impressive.
The Mavericks would be the second-best team in the Eastern Conference and an enormous obstacle for the Cavs, but alas, they are out West.
NBA official Derek Richardson prevents LeBron James from scoring in transition twice. First time Bron collided with him. One way to stop him
Kyrie uses an Andy screen and buries another 3. That's 6 quick ones for KI. LeBron has one shot attempt
Welcome back Kyrie. Bottoms a face-up triple
LeBron on a 36-year-old Kobe going into season No. 19 of his career: http://t.co/JwjjrXNVqE
LeBron on Mamba: "I love Kobe. I love his competitive nature. I love competing against him"
LeBron said he talked to Kobe just before training camp: "Just to say, ‘It’s great to have him back.’"
LeBron said he's never read the essay he wrote with Lee Jenkins because "I said it." Added it would be "weird" if he did.
After another particularly compelling pregame media session LeBron goes: "I'm here all year ... I got a lot to give"
For those interested in NBA preseason stuff, it's Andrew Wiggins & TWolves vs. Jabari Parker & Bucks tonight, live from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
David Blatt with praise for Shawn Marion after what Rick Carlisle said about Marion being underrated: I haven't seen a lot of guys like him
Rick Carlisle on Shawn Marion: "He's one of the most underrated players in NBA history"
Major points of emphasis for NBA refs this year: illegal screens, traveling violation, rule of verticality. Just briefed by Mike Callahan
The annual disorienting feeling of walking into a team's shootaround and seeing guys like Villanueva, Jameer & R. Jefferson on the Mavs
Dallas' Rick Carlisle on LeBron: "There's no doubt that we're looking at one of the 5 best players ever to play in the NBA"
CLE had Thursday off following a back-to-back but they brought in Kyrie for a group workout w/some of the young guys as a final ankle test
Kyrie has missed the Cavs last 3 preseason games with his sprained R ankle. Blatt says he's "raring to go" for tonight
Kevin Love's neck is fine, but he has the night off for "rest & maintenance" vs DAL. As does Shawn Marion. Kyrie Irving will play, however.
Kyrie Irving returns for Cavs vs. Mavs tonight. Kevin Love & Shawn Marion out. Both healthy, just resting. And yes, LeBron's playing.
Man. That's rough for the Jets. Geno did his job on two straight drives and the kick gets blocked.
Geno's supporting cast let him down. Again. Just repeat this every week.
Very backed up going into downtown this morning. More so than usual.
So again that's LeBron on Starz, KD on HBO, Kobe on Showtime and Dwight on EPIX this fall. Turns out Khloé & Lamar on E! had lasting impact
Add DH12 to the list of NBA players with TV projects coming out. Dwight Howard: In the Moment premieres on EPIX in November
The full, poignant LeBron quote from tonight when asked how he was able to forgive (Dan Gilbert, presumably) http://t.co/rGn619UlVd
LeBron on coming back to CLE: "How did I forgive? I'm a man ... There's a fine line between pride and progress. I'm on the progress side"
Coach Frank Vogel says Pacers have "displayed a really good spirit" so far despite tough loss of star Paul George. I'd agree with him there.
LeBron scores 26, Cavs stay unbeaten in The Return Era. Now 4-0 with 98-93 preseason win. Pacers' David West scores 15 in return to Xavier.
Cavs win it 98-93 to improve to 4-0 in the preseason. They host the Mavs in CLE on Friday.
First impression of Pacers: Very determined, D-minded. Not surprising under Frank Vogel. But aside from David West, who scores consistently?
Cavs hopeful Lou Amundson has been absolute beast around basket in practice. Showing same type of grit in games. Been impressive.
David Blatt, who grew up outside Boston, said this was his first time ever in Cincy. The city embraced him quick http://t.co/JbL8x3ZBCm
Always cool to see players execute what they do in practice. The other day Kirk stayed late going around the world working on 15 footers.
