James stole Pierce's spotlight with 24 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds to power the Cavaliers to a 121-99 victory against former teammate Kyrie Irving and the Celtics in a battle of Eastern Conference heavyweights at TD Garden. They looked exhausted, old and disinterested that day, as they had for more than seven weeks until general manager Koby Altman hit the reset button on February 8 by trading away six players to acquire four - four players that want to be Cavaliers and shoot for a championship. It's my job to get these guys integrated as fast as possible. "The front office made changes that they felt best fit this franchise".
James went on Instagram to endorse the move for one of his best friends, posting "truly happy for my brother @dwyanewade!"
It's only one game, and not even a full practice, into the new chapter of Cavs' basketball, which started when general manager Koby Altman sent six players out the door for the four mentioned above. The two main bench players, Korver and Jeff Green, provided strong offense throughout the night and finished the night as the team's highest scorers, combining for 54 points.
Whatever the motivation, the overhauled Cavs looked great. "It was good to see", Lue said. "I like the pieces that we have coming in".
The Celtics trailed Cleveland by a peak deficit of 29 points - the same hole they dug themselves during a loss in Toronto last Tuesday.

The Cavaliers have been in a freefall, losing 13 of 20 games since Christmas Day. However, LeBron leaving the Cavs, again, is very much a possibility and much of that depends on how the Cavs finish out the season.

A former All-Star, Thomas still hasn't fully recovered from a serious hip injury and there were no signs he was going to improve enough to make a difference this season.
James also had high hopes regarding his new team-mates.
In addition, LeBron wished Isaiah Thomas well, and said he just wants the best for him. The Mavs got forward Doug McDermott from NY. But after starting off well offensively, and allowing the Cavs just about anything they wanted with the ball, the C's are clearly slumping. I had so many battles with him when he was in Indiana.
"I gave him a hard time for that because that's not true", Nance Jr. retorted.
While Altman's main objective was to fix Cleveland's culture, his efforts also were created to appease James, who hasn't been himself in recent weeks. In his 22 games in New Orleans earlier this season, Allen, while on the court, averaged a +3.4 point differential.
