The Cleveland Cavaliers had a lot riding on their first game of the season Wednesday against the Brooklyn Nets.
The start of the season meant a new era for head coach Mike Brown. Brown served as the team’s head coach from 2005 to 2010 before returning to Cleveland and opened this season with a revamped roster.
The Cavs got off to a rough start in the first quarter, trailing by 8 points just a few minutes after tip off. But the deficit didn’t last long as the Cavs pulled through, ending the first quarter one point ahead of the Nets, 27-26.
The Cavs organization remained tight-lipped this week on whether Andrew Bynum would play against the Nets. But Bynum was on top of his game right out of the gate, making his first basket as a Cleveland Cavalier in the 2nd quarter and shortly after, hitting 3-point-play, sending a jolt of electricity through Quicken Loans Arena.
The Cavaliers held on to the lead through the half, 49-48.
