And tonight on Boston. Easiness in playing on match against Miami on the opening of the season does not make a dilemma of who is the favorite on this match. Last year, these two teams played introductory match and Boston was more successful as visitor, 95:89. I think I should not remind you how Cleveland was stronger then than it is today without LeBron and O'Neal, where the other one is now player of Boston. For two years Cleveland had a good team, they had 127 victories but they did not manage to get to the champion's ring. This summer the whole system fell apart after the departure of James to Miami. Now it is completely different team, with different coach. Next to all the troubles, tonight, Cavaliers will most probably be without the help of Mo Williams who has problems with groin. Due to injuries, Joey Graham and Daniel Gibbson are on special treatment, while Daniel might appear on the court. Boston started the match against Miami excellent, closed every access to its basket and quickly gained a significant advantage that they kept until the end of the match. Of course, it is not the same to play in your own hall, in front of your own fans but after the victory over preferred Miami, it would be unforgivable not to win this match. Last night, first five of Boston gave its 100% completely. Pierce was very useful with 19 points, 3 assists and 9 jumps; Garnett was the best in jumps (10) and added 10 points; O'Neal scored 9 points and had 7 jumps in the 18 minutes spent on the floor; Allen was the most efficient with 20 points and the star of the night was Rondo with even 17 assists, to which he added 5 jumps and 4 points. Backup players, Davis and Daniels used their opportunity excellent. So, Boston works as a team from the very start, while on the other hand, Cleveland is basically a new team comparing to the previous season so the advantage is on the side of visitors, which they will, I hope, use in a right way.
