Here live at the Q, where there is a very late arriving crowd. A couple of notes to pass along before this game starts.
First off, LeBron James is under the weather. He's battling a cold and had to leave the floor briefly during pregame warmups. He said before the game that he didn't think it would affect him. We'll see.
Also, the Nets may be perhaps trying a little of early gamesmanship. They have claimed the basket in front of the Cavs bench for the first half, which is a switch from routine. Normally all teams play offense in front of their own bench in the first half so they can have help on defense in the second half.
Check back after each quarter for updates.
