24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
The Cavs began their quest to return to the NBA Finals on Sunday afternoon as they took on the Pistons in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals in what turned out to be an amazing game.
The Pistons surprisingly had a five point lead at half time and nailed 15 3-pointers in this one tying a franchise playoff high, however, the Cavs Big 3 was just too much for this young squad in Game 1.
Kyrie Irving led the way with 31 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds as he played in his first postseason game since Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Finals. Kevin Love had a big night adding 28 points and 13 rebounds and LeBron James was dominant as always with 22 points, 11 assists and 6 rebounds.
Cavs pull away late to get the 106-101 Game 1 win.
