Look Cavs destroy Celtics on Pierce's jersey retirement night

Look Cavs destroy Celtics on Pierce's jersey retirement night

And Pierce balked at sharing the stage with him on Sunday, Cleveland's only other trip to Boston.

LeBron James silenced a Boston Celtics crowd that came to celebrate Paul Pierce, scoring 24 points with 10 assists and eight rebounds to give the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers a 121-99 National Basketball Association victory.

DeMar DeRozan had 25 points and eight assists while C.J. Miles added 24 points as six Toronto players scored in double figures.

"It definitely gave me chills, especially with LeBron out there", Pierce told reporters afterward.

Trump Budget Would Privatize the International Space Station, Make NASA a 'Customer'
Astronauts have lived in space every day since the year 2000, performing research that could not be done on Earth otherwise. In President Trump's new proposal it does include more rocket testing with hopes of sending people further into deep space.

Pierce, who retired at the end of last season, watched the game from his sideline seat, waiting for the postgame ceremony. Hill hit shots and made things hard for his matchup on defense, Nance is a walking and living embodiment of the Energizer Bunny, Hood feels like a younger version of JR Smith (who suddenly looked like JR Smith again), and Clarkson was everywhere. But when the Cavaliers raced to a 27-point lead halfway through the final quarter the crowd couldn't hold back chanting "We want Paul Pierce". The Celtics made it 64-55 on the first basket of the third quarter but never even got close for the rest of the game.

James banged into Aron Baynes in the lane with about five minutes left in the first quarter and hobbled off the court, favoring his right leg.

While trading away ball-dominant guards in Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose, the Cavs have surrounded James with shooters who can create on and off the ball and demonstrated that in their Cleveland debut. Now the Cavaliers are 33-22, have won three in a row and are six games back of first out east.

Kyrie Irving posted 18 points and five assists in his third game against his old team.

But what was second to LeBron's performance was how the new guys blended in to their new roles.

In their first appearances for Cleveland since being acquired at the trade deadline, Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points and George Hill 12. "So that's a good sign".

It's no surprise that this team came to play on Sunday.

Head coach Dwane Casey became the first coach in franchise history to record 300 wins.
