He has, after all, brought Cleveland its first sports title in 52 years, took them to the Finals for four straight seasons and built a school for special-needs youth. I ran around, jumped, blocked a couple shots (Tuesday) so I feel good doing everything.

Kevin Love led the Cavs with 21 points, while Cedi Osman added 17. "That's the style we want to play, everyone's involved that way, I think everyone has fun playing that way".

To mark the start of the 2018/19 National Basketball Association season on Sky Sports, we take a look back at Cleveland Cavaliers star Larry Nance Jr's sit down with Jamie Redknapp in the Super Sunday studio back in August.

The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year played 37 minutes after being limited to nine games last season because of a quadriceps injury.

On Monday, Love was joined on the Cavs' cap sheet through 2022-23 by Larry Nance Jr.

Love knew he was off, and with him making this team go and being the guy that will make the others better, he knows that it's on him when a loss and/or an "off night" happens. Nurse said. "We've shifted a few more pieces maybe than they have, so they maybe got a little bit more time together than we do".

"We are extremely excited to have Larry in a Cavaliers uniform long-term", said Altman.

Giving up their leading scorer and fan favorite DeRozan for Leonard, who can depart after one season, was a risk that the Raptors were willing to take after repeated playoff failures.

"That rhythm wasn't there tonight", Love said.

"They may be further ahead of the curve because they have everybody back and have had the same team for a while", Green said.

It's quite possible that if Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue didn't make the move to go small in the fourth quarter after Valanciunas was re-inserted, Ibaka would have played about 22 minutes to the Lithuanian's 25.

"I don't have any regrets about leaving", says the former No. 5 lottery pick, who grew up between California and Oregon. "They gave me some more energy".

"I felt good. I'm happy we came out and got a win", Leonard said.

A franchise record for wins, a Boston Celtics team that was without two elite players and a Cleveland Cavaliers team that was in disarray.
