Overview of all main players


Kyrie Irving: Stats- 10 Points 3 assists 1-7 FG
Kyrie struggled to shoot the ball yesterday only capitalizing on one of his shots which should not be a big worry for Cavs fans as it is Preseason. However, Kyrie did have a  highlight with this beautiful dish to
Tristan Thompson 


CJ Miles
CJ Miles had a good debut with the Cavs with 10 points on 4-5 FG with 3 rebounds. CJ shot a deep three which got the crowd crazy. CJ started ahead of Waiters.However, Coach Scott said to fans to not look that much into it.

Alonzo Gee
Alonzo had a quiet night with 2 points. However, he did defend well with his competition at SF position. .

Tristan Thompson
Tristan had a excellent game with 12 points and 4 rebounds. Tristan showed us that he has improved his game by a good margin as he was able to power past his defenders. Tristan could easily become a double-double guy if he plays like this.

Anderson Varejao
Andy also had a good game with 6 points and 8 rebounds proving that he has not lost his touch in bringing energy to the team. Hopefully, Andy will stay healthy this season.

Bench Standouts

Donald Sloan
Sloan is a option as backup PG to Kyrie Irving. His performance in this game showed that he is the right man for the job as he scored 13 points on 4-7 FG. Jeremy Pargo is his competition this training camp.

Samardo Samuels
Samardo probably played his best game ever with 14 points and 7 rebounds. The slimmed down Samardo showed a good range in his jumper and also showed us that he has improved in his quickness. Hopefully, he plays like this during the season.

Dion Waiters
Dion Waiters had a solid rookie debut with 10 points on 3-6 FG. He looked way more comfortable with the ball than he was in summer league. He also showed us that he could knock the clutch shots.

Tyler Zeller
Zeller as well as Waiters had a solid debut as he had 7 points and 7 rebounds. He showed us that he could work in the Post well
