The Cavaliers defeated the Atlanta Hawks, 123-107, in which LeBron James scored a triple-double while Kyle Korver exploded with 30 points in 9 of 16 shooting from the field and 5 of 5 from the free throw line.

Cleveland's new faces will be playing in their first game since being acquired and Lue will roll out with a surprising starting lineup of George Hill, J.R. Smith, Cedi Osman, LeBron James, and Tristan Thompson. Defensively, the Cavaliers are yielding 110.1 points per game. The Celtics were trailing by 21 points entering halftime, but clawed their way back into the game with a 34-17 third quarter. The 6-10 forward/center leads the team in assists and was named an All-Star for the fifth time.

Here's looking forward to the rest of the regular season and the playoffs as well.

The five-time NBA All-Star (including his 2018 call up) is now in the top 10 in the league for points per game, averaging 24.9 (as of February 6).

The two vets and Cleveland's second unit are about to get an infusion of youth beginning Sunday - with Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson making their Cavs debut in Boston.

For most of Sunday afternoon, James will square off against a rookie, but he's no ordinary National Basketball Association freshman.

On the season, the Cavaliers are averaging 109.8 points, 41.8 rebounds and 23.6 assists per game.

Jayson Tatum has been everything the Celts had hoped for and more - piling up points on pace with some of Boston's all-time greats through the first 56 games of his career and now ranked 10th in the Association, shooting 43 percent from long-range.

Also of note in the Cavs' new lineup is the inclusion of Osman, who made his first career start on Friday night.
