The Cavaliers kick off the 2017-18 NBA regular season with an Eastern Conference Finals rematch against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night at Cleveland’s Q Arena.
LeBron James has been nursing a sprained ankle since the start of the NBA preseason and his status remains unclear for Tuesday night’s game, but team officials say he participated in Sunday’s walk-through ahead of the opener.
The Cavs will take on a Celtics team led by former Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving. The crowd’s reaction will likely be mixed with cheers of appreciation and taunts and boos
Tipoff between the Cavs and Celtics is at 8 p.m., while arena doors open at 6:30 p.m.
