The Cleveland Cavaliers started the 2012-13 NBA season off right with a win against the Wizards at home. They now own the best record in the NBA. Leave all your post-game reactions and thoughts here.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards played the first game of the 2012-13 NBA season on Tuesday night. Kyrie Irving dropped a cool 29 points to lead the Cavs to a 94-84 victory. Anderson Varejao was an absolute monster, scoring 9 points, dishing out 9 assists, and grabbing an unreal 23 rebounds (12 offensive!!).

Tristan Thompson managed to notch a double-double with 12 points, 10 rebounds and added 5 assists as well. Dion Waiters had a great NBA debut, scoring 17 points on 6 of 14 shooting and grabbing a clutch rebound in the waning minutes of the ball game.

The Cavs held the Wizards to just 35% shooting from the field, so that will make Byron Scott happy. The Cavs did, however, commit 21 turnovers, so that will make Byron Scott sad.

As of right now, the Cavaliers are undefeated and unquestionably the best team in the NBA.
