The Cleveland Cavaliers opened play in the NBA Summer League this afternoon with an 88-82 triumph over the D-League Select in Las Vegas, Nevada.
J.J, Hickson led Cleveland with 18 points, while Tasmin Mitchell gobbled up eleven rebounds and Pooh Jeter dished out seven assists.
The Cavs overcame a four-point deficit entering the final period by outscoring the Select 28-18 in the stanza.
For the game, Cleveland shot 54% from the field, including 43% on threes. Oddly, a "regular" game nemesis reared its head again today as the Cavs shot only 59% from the foul line. Hickson did not help by going 0 for 6 at the stripe, but hey, a win is a win! Yes?
Cleveland takes on the Phoenix Suns tomorrow as the Cavs play their second of five Summer League games.
