PREVIOUSLY...the Cleveland Cavaliers are off to a 1-2 start, beating the Celtics in Cleveland to open the season before losing at Toronto and, most recently, at home to Sacramento on Saturday.

JJ Hickson and Boobie Gibson have led the Cavalier offense in the early going with Antawn Jamison shooting just 38.6 eFG% thus far and Ramon Sessions struggling (42.1 eFG%, more turnovers than assists) in the absence of Mo Williams.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

You know, I really had hoped nights like this were a thing of the past, where Al Horford, Marvin Williams, and Jamal Crawford were really efficient shooting while Joe Johnson put up 20+ shots despite being completely ineffective. This is one of the signs that the coaching change has not had as big an effect upon the overall team concept as we'd like. The good news is that JJ has 7 assists
