LeBron spoils Pierce's day, leads new-look Cavs to rout of Celtics

LeBron James and his new look Cleveland Cavaliers were in Boston to take on the Celtics Sunday afternoon. James noted a key difference in Cleveland's performance.

Pierce's former teammates Antoine Walker, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo were in attendance for the ceremony, along with Pierce's former coach in Boston and with the Clippers, Doc Rivers.

"At the end of the day, I just want to be around guys who work hard", he said, per Rachel Nichols of ESPN. The Cavaliers defeated the Atlanta Hawks, 123-107, in which LeBron James scored a triple-double while Kyle Korver exploded with 30 points in 9 of 16 shooting from the field and 5 of 5 from the free throw line.

Terry Rozier came off the bench to lead the Celtics with 21 points. Marcus Morris was the only other player in double figures with 17 for Boston, which dropped its second straight.

Cleveland proceeded to close out the quarter on a 24-12 run to go up 64-52 at halftime and outscored the hosts 31-22 in the third.

The flurry of trades have added some more youth and versatility to the Cavs roster and should help them improve on defense but it will be interesting to see how well the team is able to gel by the time they come up against the Celtics on Sunday. He barreled into Boston's Aron Baynes driving to the basket and was called for the charge before limping to the sidelines.

James are leading in four major statistical categories for the Cavaliers: points (26.4), assists (8.9), steals (1.6) and blocks (1.0) per game.

Boston has been at the top in the Eastern Conference all season, thanks to superb play from Kyrie Irving, the NBA's top-rated defense and the rapid development of its young players.
