The Cleveland Cavaliers outlasted the Brooklyn Nets last night in their season opener, 98-94. The Cavs led by one at the half of the closely contested ballgame, but jumped out to a nine point lead heading into the fourth behind Tristan Thompson’s 18-point, nine rebound performance. In the fourth, a Dion Waiters basket and a layup from Anderson Varejao put Cleveland up five, but Brooklyn fought back to tie it. However, Anderson Varejao hit a jumper with 28 seconds left and Kyrie Irving hit four clutch free throws down the stretch to win the game. Cleveland will now hit the road to battle Charlotte on Friday at 7.
