What’s the buzz on Twitter?

David Morrow @_DavidMorrow
Evan Mobley is just an absolutely bonkers defender already. Brings help to stymie Plumlee, force a difficult kickout. Then guards Bridges superbly on the drive to force a very difficult shot. pic.twitter.com/nQXRZiBXXz12:35 AM

Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
#Cavs Ricky Rubio on the byproduct of Q4 turnovers: “It was all on me and I take that blame and I take this loss. It’s something that, as a veteran, I have to lead the way and know that if there’s one or two turnovers, the next play you can’t really rush it. I pushed it too much” – 11:25 PM

Final: Hornets 123, Cavs 112: Sexton 33p (13-21, 2-7 3s, 5-5 FT) 4r 1a in 35 minutes, Rubio 15-10, Mobley 13-2-2, Markkanen 13-5-2; Bridges 30p 7r, Oubre 25p. Cavs finish with 19 turnovers (34p), bench outscored 45-27, outrebounded 46-36. – 9:20 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
That wraps things up here for the home opener. #Cavs fall to the Hornets 123-112. A rough start to the fourth quarter with the turnovers really hurt the Cavs. Ended the game with 18 turnovers.
Collin Sexton scored a game-high 33 pts. Ricky Rubio ended with 15 pts and 10 assists. – 9:19 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Final: #Hornets 123, Cavs 112

Up next: at Brooklyn on Sunday – 9:19 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
With 1:52 remaining in their game vs. CHA and trailing by 14, the Cavaliers pulled their starters in defeat.
They play Hawks tomorrow in an early evening game (6:00 ET). – 9:18 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
Second loudest cheer of night (behind Myles Garrett) is when Bickerstaff empties his bench and Tacko Fall enters with 1:52 to go. – 9:15 PM
Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
Miles Bridges ain’t joking – 9:13 PM
Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
evan mobley is his own position – 9:13 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
Another #Cavs issue: A team that started 3 7-footers (minus 1 inch for Allen), and has Kevin Love (11 boards) is getting outrebounded 42-31. – 9:08 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
Yikes, #Cavs have 6 turnovers here in the fourth quarter alone, and the Hornets capitalized by scoring 13 points. Hornets have built their lead up to 18 points. – 9:02 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
For most of this quarter, Cavs can’t get it past the free throw line before the Hornets knock the ball loose. – 9:02 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
#Hornets are on a 19-2 run. Sound familiar? They lead 109-91. That was quick. – 9:00 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Solid game for Cody Martin. Has 8 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals in 20 minutes. – 8:58 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
Hornets opened up 100-91 lead with 10:03 to go. Cavs now at 14 turnovers, leading to 23 points. – 8:56 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Gordon Hayward 3-pointers gives #Hornets their largest lead of the game at 100-91. Cavs call a timeout. – 8:54 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Collin Sexton up to a game-high 27 points, but Cavs trail by one heading into the fourth quarter. – 8:51 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
3rd Q: Hornets 90, #Cavs 89: Sexton 27p, Rubio 15p 10a, Markkanen 11-3-2, Mobley 9-4-1, Love 6-11-3. Oubre 22p, Bridges 16-6, Ball 15-1-4. Cavs 33-61, 8-23 3s; Hornets 35-69, 8-22. Hornets 36-18 edge in bench pts, 36-25 RBs. – 8:51 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
End of 3rd Q: #Hornets 90, Cavs 89 – 8:48 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
I would love to see Kevin Love outside of this Cavs’ situation and be interested to see how much of this is an engagement issue, but he’s not exactly making a strong case over the first two games that he can help a good team purely based on his play so far. – 8:45 PM

#Cavs Ricky Rubio with a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists with about 4 minutes left in the third quarter. – 8:35 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
#Cavs Collin Sexton with 23 points (10-13 FG, 2-5 3s, 1-1 FT), 2 rebounds, 1 assist in 20 minutes. Cavs trail Hornets 68-67 at 6:57 in 3rd Q. – 8:28 PM
John Karalis @RedsArmy_John
Ime Udoka apparently loves to run horns sets. A lot of the C’s offense runs off that action.
I put together a video a few years ago about Hayward running it if you want a look

James Plowright @British_Buzz
Oh no Terry Rozier has reaggrevated his foot injury here, visibly limping – 8:24 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
I don’t think the Hornets will ever need to run plays to get Oubre some looks, he’s quite familiar with getting his shots up, but it’s worked so far – 8:20 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Collin Sexton remains a bucket. He scored 17 points on 7-of-9 from the field and 2-of-3 from 3-point range in 15 terrific first half minutes. – 8:16 PM
Joe Gabriele @CavsJoeG
Solid 1H in CLE – #Cavs up, 59-54, at H; CLE, 50%FG, CHA, 49%; CLE, 7-17 3ptFG, 17asst on 21FGM; Sexton, game-hi 17pts, 7-9FG, 2-4 3ptFG; Markkanen, 9pts, 3-4FG, 2-3 3ptFG; Rubio, 8pts, 2-3 3ptFG, team-hi 7asst, 3stl; Allen, 7pts, 3-4FG, 14-15 this season; Love, game-hi 11reb. – 8:10 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
Half: #Cavs 59, Hornets 54: Sexton 17p, Markkanen 9-2-2, Rubio 8p 7a, Allen 7-1-2. Oubre 17-3-1, Bridges 11p 4r, Ball 9p 4a. Cavs 21-42, 7-17 3s; Hornets 23-47, 4-15 3s. Cavs 6 turnovers in 2nd Q, 8 for game (13p) – 8:09 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
At the end of the first half, #Cavs hold a 59-54 lead. Ball movement is still looking good as they have 17 assists on 21 made shots.
Collin Sexton is leading the team in scoring with 17 points. Ricky Rubio up to 7 assists and 8 points. – 8:06 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Halftime: Cavs 59, #Hornets 54 – 8:04 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Also seems like Charlotte is being a bit more physical with #Cavs rookie Evan Mobley. – 7:58 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
Kevin Love has 7 rebounds, 3 assists and a block in 10 minutes for #Cavs. But only 2 points, both free throws, as he’s 0-4 from the field, 0-1 on 3s. – 7:55 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Evan Mobley’s verticality when defending shots at the rim is impressive. Miles Bridges already frustrated with the no-call. Memphis was irritated about it the other night too. – 7:54 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
A weird offensive foul, a stupid push off on Rubio, can’t have Melo getting into foul trouble every game, he needs to understand he’s too important for that – 7:51 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Three fouls on LaMelo with 7:30 left in the second quarter. Has to take a seat. He’s having problems containing Colin Sexton. – 7:50 PM

Hayward, Bridges and Rozier a combined 3-12 Indy going to cut it. Gordon has had some good looks but shot just hasn’t been falling – 7:47 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
LaMelo passes are hilarious. pic.twitter.com/WRK5yWvIzp7:46 PM

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Holy Jarrett Allen… – 7:44 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
Hello Jarrett Allen. What a dunk. – 7:44 PM

1st Q: #Cavs 30, Hornets 27: Rubio 6p 2a, Osman 5p, Markkanen 4p, Sexton 4p; Oubre 10-1-1. Cavs 10-20 FG, 4-10 3s; Hornets 11-22, 3-7. – 7:39 PM

PG Kevin Pangos making his NBA debut with #Cavs. Thus far scoreless (has taken no shots) in his 5 minutes. – 7:37 PM
Rod Boone @rodboone
Kelly Oubre has 10 points off the bench already. – 7:35 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs offense in the 6 and a half minutes with Ricky Rubio: 20 points. Cavs offense in the three-ish minutes (before this current timeout) without him: 3 points. – 7:33 PM

James Plowright @British_Buzz
That Oubre 3 was the first real time all night the Hornets drove and kicked, made the extra pass. Balls been too static staying on one side of the ball, let’s pick up the pace – 7:28 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs Kevin Pangos makes his NBA debut at the 5:25 mark of the first quarter. He will be called on as the backup with Darius Garland out. – 7:26 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Malone said during the season he rarely had time to connect with Coach Pop, but he’s made sure he knows how much he appreciates the help he provided him. Pop helped Malone get a job in Cleveland w/ Mike Brown and later a job in New Orleans with Monty Williams. – 7:22 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Ricky “Green Light” Rubio – 7:21 PM
Marla Ridenour @MRidenourABJ
Ricky Rubio in the #Cavs lineup with 3 bigs — Lauri Markkanen, Evan Mobley & Jarrett Allen. Also Collin Sexton. Should be an interesting first quarter vs. Hornets. – 7:11 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Only getting the Cavs game feed through league pass currently which is less than ideal. If you’ve ever seen a trap game for the Hornets this is it, Cavs with a key injury, Hornets favored, Markkanen who kills Charlotte, all the recipes for disappointment 🤞 – 7:04 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
With Darius Garland out tonight, #Cavs starting five for the home opener against Charlotte:
Ricky Rubio, Collin Sexton, Lauri Markkanen, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen – 6:31 PM

Terry Rozier just finished his warmups and is going over some film. I’d say he’s indeed good to go. pic.twitter.com/3Wn913C9Vo5:56 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
James Borrego said he’s not sure yet if Terry Rozier will play tonight. If Rozier does play (as he told me he expects to earlier) Borrego will likely go 10 deep in the rotation. James Bouknight and Kai Jones remain on the outside looking in at the moment. – 5:47 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
#Cavs J.B. Bickerstaff said “we’ll see” about Darius Garland. Will be a game time decision.
He was listed as questionable with an ankle sprain. – 5:28 PM
