LeBron James, Kyle Korver lead rebooted Cavaliers over Hawks

Or would it be another disappointing day? Both teams shot over 50 percent from the floor and made it look like this could turn into a shootout.

After scoring more than 30 points in each of the first three quarters, the Cavs were held to 26 points in the fourth, but still held on to win 121-99. By the time the half came to an end, the Celtics had lost their one-point lead and were down by 12, 64-52.

Hours later, he was gone along with five other players who weren't doing enough to keep the Cavs among the league's elite teams. The Cavs tried to incorporate him into their offense, but it was forced and bogging them down. The Mavs got forward Doug McDermott from NY. It was the type of performance that has been rare from the Celtics in a big spot and just as rare for the Cavs. With about two minutes to go, Cleveland got the lead up to 25 points, 92-67. A few years ago with the Detroit Pistons, he averaged 16 points per game, 9.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.

Korver played four-plus seasons with the Hawks and made 818 of his career 3-pointers with the team.

"I like the pieces we have coming in", LeBron said on Friday morning.

In their first appearances since being acquired at the trade deadline, Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points, Rodney Hood had 15, George Hill had 12 and Larry Nance scored five points.

First off, Cleveland got Larry Nance Jr., who is a great defender, which they didn't really have before, plus Nance is the kind of player that could fit in any team, so he is a clear upgrade to the roster.

Altman consulted with Wade and James about the move since their friendship is what led to them playing together in Cleveland this season. He wasn't the best player available, but he was exactly what the Celtics needed. This might be just one win, but it is a big one. "It's nearly like the new guys have been here". "Got him a lob, got him a dunk, so it was a good start for the new guys, a good start for all of us with our revamped team so far".

LeBron James has been doing his bit to try and get used to his new teammates as quickly as possible in order to get the team back on track this season as, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, the Cavaliers star will have a few games with his new team on National Basketball Association 2k18 beforehand.

Former Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce raises his number 34 to the rafters during the ceremony to retire his number at TD Garden. He shouldn't take much time to get comfortable in Cleveland. But the loss didn't stop fans from showering Pierce with "Thank you Paul Pierce" chants anyway.

As you can see below, the Detroit Pistons (+1000) now have the fifth-odds along with the Philadelphia 76ers to land James, behind only the Houston Rockets (+250), Cleveland Cavaliers (+275), Los Angeles Lakers (+500), and Golden State Warriors (+600).
