Nearing the midnight hour…

Celtics Cavaliers Basketball

Just finished my game story.

It’s a wrap here in Cleveland.

The Cavaliers lost, 95-89, to the Boston Celtics in the season opener for both teams. The Celtics have proven players, the addition of Rasheed Wallace looked good and he really strengthens their bench.

The Celtics outscored the Cavaliers, 26-10, in bench points.

Thought Shaquille O’Neal looked OK. At least that’s what James said about O’Neal’s 5-for-11 effort. O’Neal started the game 3-for-3, which means he ended it shooting 2-for-8 from the field.

He left some shots short, but did grab 1o rebounds and actually didn’t play too bad of defense. Then again, no Cleveland player shot 50 percent from the field. James was 12-of-22.

In short, the offense needs work. Point blank. The defense is not bad, but then again, the Celtics are going to be hell to guard all year.

With four games in five days, it will be interesting to see how the Cavs look tomorrow at Toronto.

Good night. Got to hit the road.
