Kevin Love: "We were sloppy with the ball. We didn't get into any of our sets. Gotta give some credit to the Knicks too."
Sidenote to Cavs-Knicks: Blatt took responsibility 4 not playing Marion/Miller enough. Marion couldn't recall playing so little when healthy
LeBron says the night was "great... and I'm glad it's over."
LeBron talks about need to develop chemistry. "I was throwing the ball where I thought my teammates will be.... Those things will come."
David Blatt: "We've got to do a better job of getting him the ball in motion."
David Blatt on LeBron: "First of all, that was an emotional night for him. He wanted badly to win the game & help the team play well."
All eyes on LeBron, just like he wanted.
So Steve Ballmer is crazy, too. Just good crazy.
Heat fans will always have tonight.
Pretty confident that will be the last time I root for the Knicks. It's been a confusing night.
Knicks win, 95-90. LeBron & Carmelo hug. LeBron finishes w/ 17/5/4 & 8 TO's. Irving w/ 22/5/7. Carmelo w/ 25. And Cavs in Chicago tomorrow.
ATTN Cleveland Writers: It was the right basketball play. 30-inch follow.
Fans starting to shuttle out with 8.9 left. Knicks' 3 guard lineup (with Carmelo at 4) worked down the stretch.
An uncontested J.R. Smith floater in the lane is going to determine this game. I rest my case.
Knicks lead Cavaliers 88-83 w/ 2:18 left. Carmelo has 23. Love finishing game at the 5, as expected. Dellavedova closing, not as expected.
But seriously, the Cavs have three guards on the floor right now that play no defense and Kevin Love.
Team LeBron flat until the final five minutes? I've read this story before...or wrote it 100 times last year, as the case may be.
NBA Replay Center Cam is so clutch.
LeBron consults w/ Mike Miller & James Jones before heading back to floor. Knicks up 80-71 w/ 5:48 left.
Looking forward to checking out the Travis Wear & Quincy Acy statues in Times Square
Fans are restless in Cleveland. No movement on offense at all.
Mystic Woflman Barfar's hairstyles through the years should be made into a flipbook and then shot into deep space as a warning.
JR Smith vs. Dion Waiters on clearouts.... It's what the people came to see.
Mike Miller finally enters for Cavaliers, with 1:24 left in the third. Played in all 82 for Memphis last season.
I took a bath in Wild Irish Rose once.
So if FSU loses tonight and Oregon loses to Stanford college football is just going to start the year over, right?
Cavs leading 44-42 at half. LeBron 1-of-9 with four turnovers. Not getting to comfortable spots in offense. Love 14/9/3. Carmelo's 4-for-11.
Carmelo Anthony could have been a Chicago Bull
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.
Cavs offense looked cleaner in preseason than tonight. Some overpassing. Tough to evaluate anyone's defense against the Knicks.
Nothing makes people crazier than politics, sports and religion and all three are represented in LeBron's Beats commercial.
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.
David Blatt didn't appear especially pleased with that shot from Kyrie Irving.
Justin Bieber just got booed here. Usher was cheered. Then Usher hugged Bieber. Boos. I think this is universal.
LeBron starts 1-for-5 with 3 turnovers. Love already at 8/7/3, again mostly standing out by 3-point line.
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.
Not sure what shape of offense the Knicks are running, but it's not much of a triangle
Why is LeBron "6-8, 275" when all summer we heard about him losing weight?
LeBron took James Jones, y'all. James Jones. Don't tell me that wasn't personal.
I'm trying to reconcile this scene with December 2, 2010.
"I’m not having a press conference or a party. After this, it’s time to get to work."
Wow, this one heck of a pep rally! But it's totally cool since it's at "home".
And Bobby Petrino is supposed to be an offensive genuis?
Here's my PSA for the majority of my followers.... My next 2 games are in Cleveland & Chicago, b4 Toronto/Miami on Sunday.
Knicks look like a homecoming opponent for 2nite's LeBron homecoming in Cleveland. Starters: Dalembert, Acy, Shumpert, Larkin w/ Carmelo.
Wishing my guy @fullcourtvision much success on his basketball camp this weekend in Detroit. Follow him for more info.
Tim Tebow: "ESPN is really going overboard in hyping the Cavs' season-opener."
Howard the Duck was based in Cleveland, making tonight the second-greatest moment in the city's history.
Boosie new mixtape is straight
Chris Andersen, at 36.33 years on opening night, listed as 12th oldest player in NBA (when not counting Steve Nash).
Per NBA survey of opening-night rosters, Glen Davis listed as heaviest player at 295 pounds, although that does seems a bit off.
Norris Cole tied for sixth-lightest player in the league at 170 pounds. Shabazzz Napier tied for 13th-lightest at 175.
Heat eighth-lighest team in NBA, at average of 216.2 pounds per player. League average 219.49.
Heat fifth-shortest team in NBA based on opening-night rosters. Heat players average 78.8 inches tall. League average is 79.1.
Heat 27th-oldest team in terms of average age (28.7 years old). Average age of NBA player 26.89 years.
19 players from Kentucky most of any school on NBA opening-night rosters (none on Heat). Duke 2nd with 18 (Heat: Deng, McRoberts, Dawkins).
Are the banks and schools closed today in Cleveland for the national holiday?
LeBron, moments ago, on Cavaliers opener tonight, "This is probably one of the biggest sporting events that's up there ever."
Per Nielsen: Heat-Wizards higher TV rating (9.7) in South Florida than ESPN Knicks-Bulls (1.6), and Game 7 of the World Series on FOX (7.9).
pence. They came together to make the world good (2/2)
Looks kind of weird seeing Chris Bosh on the Top 5 list for rebounding. Yes, I know it's early. Very early.
