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

#Cavs Darius Garland to miss tonight’s home opener with left ankle sprain, sources tell @clevelanddotcom. Ricky Rubio to start in Garland’s spot.

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.

NBA overreactions!
Westbrook regret, Warriors best in the West, Jason Kidd’s coaching, Bulls stifling D, LaMelo’s Matrix + highlighter + Dick Tracy fit and more.
Do I believe all of it? Of course… 👇👇👇
