Cleveland Cavaliers on their 1st win this season against the Boston Celtics and their former point guard Kyrie Irving. LeBron James unleashed the beast inside of him, scoring 29 big points for his team. 

Cavs survived the comeback attack of Boston, taking the victory in the final moments of the game 102-99.

It was unfortunate on the part of Boston when Gordon Hayward was unable to play halfway the 1st quarter and the rest of the game, thus allowing the Cavs to take advantage of their weak link and establishing a 16 point lead at the half.

Cleveland Cavaliers seemed to take control of the game from the first quarter up to the mid 3rd, but the Boston Celtics suddenly dashed to catch up with them, Boston completely outscored the Cavs in the 3rd quarter 33-18 to come back from a 16 point deficit, entering the final quarter with their prey within striking distance.

Approaching the 8-minute mark of the final quarter, the Boston officially made it back up by a Kyrie Irving three-point shot, giving them a sweet 82-80 lead. Followed by another triple from the hot uncle Drew to break the deadlock at 84, Celtics were up again 87-84.

Boston tried to expand their lead and succeeded by another long ball by Jaylen Brown assisted by Kyrie but LeBron does not want it to end with them losing, scoring with a layup followed by his own shot from beyond the arc to take the lead back 91-90.

Heading to the last 2 minutes of the game, the whole arena was set on fire by an alley-hoop play of Dwyane Wade and LeBron, bringing back the Miami vibe but is quickly answered by Kyrie passing on to Jayson Tatum for the easy layup.

Last minute to play, King James drives his way through for another layup, followed by a crucial turnover of Jayson Tatum, Cavs burned a timeout to carefully map out the next play that may cost the game for both teams.

Coming off the timeout, Kevin Love cast a dagger onto the green pips, making a huge shot from the rainbow country, and that sentenced the game to their favor. The Cavs survived against Kyrie and the rest of Boston Celtics.
