Been a painful watch, to say the least. – 8:26 PM

Despite being without building blocks Garland and Allen, the Cavs team that has been pounding teams regularly has shown up in 1Q, off to a huge start. Cle 27-8 after 8 mins. Statistically, Cleveland is 4th-best team in #NBA based on net rating – 8:26 PM

Devonte Graham knocked knees with Isaac Okoro and went down quick.
He’s trying to walk it off and he takes a seat on the bench.
Tomas Satoransky is checking in for him. – 8:14 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Have already seen several fans in Auburn gear, here to watch Isaac Okoro and potentially Jared Harper making his #Pelicans home debut. Harper played three minutes Sunday at Oklahoma City – 8:02 PM
Mike Ganter @Mike_Ganter
DJ Wilson looked rather solid in that blow out loss against Cleveland but he’s no where to be found tonight. Wasn’t in warmups and is not on the bench. – 8:01 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Trey Murphy has missed 18 of his last 19 3-point attempts.
If the rookie is ever gonna break out of his slump, the Pels desperately need it to be tonight. – 7:48 PM

The Cavs will be without their starting point guard for at least the next few games as Darius Garland was placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocols on Tuesday, meaning he will not play in tonight’s game vs. the New Orleans Pelicans. trib.al/nGmem2Q2:29 PM
