The highlight of the game was the scream team performance to Michael Jackson Thriller song. Other than that every thing was flat from start to finish.
Lebron had the worst opening night of his career. He shot just 2-of-11 from the field, made five turnovers.
Larry Hughes summer training didn’t pay off. He shot 2 of 13 from the field.
Zydrunas Ilgauskas was at his best and tried to keep the Cavaliers in the game. He had 17 points and 18 rebounds.
“We got our behinds kicked,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “Dallas came in here and did what they wanted to do offensively and defensively.”
“It’s the first game, hopefully we can put it behind us,” James said. “We didn’t play well — at all. It’s kind of how we have been playing in the preseason. We didn’t do anything right. We didn’t play hard. We didn’t execute.”
