Cavaliers Win Summer League Opener

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.
