Tough one last night, something to learn from. Atmosphere was crazy! Cavs fans are passionate
Carmelo Anthony on LeBron/Cavs: "It took time in Miami for him. It's going to take time here. He'll figure it out. They'll figure it out."
In Miami LeBron turned the ball over 8 times in his debut. Nine times the next game. Takes a few games to get familiar with new teammates.
In saying that about LeBron, how often do you really expect the best in NBA to turn the ball over EIGHT times and start 1-of-9 from field?
I think 15 1/2 hours at the Q today is long enough. Flight in a few hours for Chicago. Catch you guys tomorrow.
Cavs beat KG, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce & Celtics in 2010 opener... Then lost 26 straight in same season. Don't read too much into openers.
Knicks 95, #Cavs 90. Knicks ruin Cavs' home opener. clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2014/10/game-1…
LeBron James on this monumental evening: It was great but I'm also glad it's over."
LeBron James on his turnovers: “I hate turning the ball over. It’s a pet peeve of mine and eight is definitely something that’s not OK.”
Giants WR Victor Cruz was on crutches talking to LeBron outside the Cavs locker room after the game.
Shawn Marion on the pregame videos/introductions: "It felt like the Super Bowl or some sh--."
Shawn Marion on playing so little minutes: "That's the first time in my career. But that's OK, it happens"
David Blatt says LeBron James really wanted to win that game tonight. Says he has to do a better job moving him around.
Blatt on Marion/Miller not getting much burn: "That's on me. Those guys need to play more"
Blatt said the Cavs have to get LeBron when he's on the move on offense rather than when he's stationary to get him going
David Blatt: "We spiked at a certain point ... (Then) we kind of dropped off the map to be honest with you"
I'm pointing out facts here. Miami lost its first game of the Big Three era. Dallas, when it won 67 games about 10 years ago, started 0-4.
Clearly the number is inflated because the Cavs were desperately trying to get the win, but LeBron James played a game-high 44 mins too
Cavs fall 95-90 in their season opener. James had 17 pts on 5-for-15 shooting and 8 turnovers. Love with 19p, 14r. Kyrie 22p, 7a.
Nobody saw this coming...

LeBron gets called for an offensive foul on Shumpert. Which is in essence another turnover.
The Cavs "humongotron" came in handy getting his crowd riled up after the replay showed what appeared to be a phantom call of LeBron on Melo
LeBron James has a game-high of seven turnovers. He has not been himself, to say the least. He's also 3-of-13 from the field.
7 turnovers by James. Knicks up by 8 with 6 minutes remaining
"Not 6, not 7 (turnovers)"
LeBron's first game in Miami was a loss, 88-80, against Boston. LeBron had 8 TO's that night. Also 31 points, but 8 TO's
Knicks are shooting 52%. Since first quarter they're shooting 59%. That's why they're leading 77-71, 6:34 left

Cavs bench being outscored 31-6 so far. Blatt has played Marion/Miller a combined 6 minutes.
