i would say in the 20-25 point range, aldo the D.Rose matchup is more than favorable

A very inefficient 26 points in a loss to CLE.

50 pts. It'll be his game to show the world why he didn't want to play under lebron . I can see it being a historic performance

Woah.  Cupcakes bake really quickly, especially minis.  He's going to have to neglect every single defensive possession (possible), and take 35 shots (possible), in order to put up 50 points.

Fun fact: In the NBA-sphere, the term cupcake was reportedly coined by our very own former enforcer, Perkins, while in OKC:

Since everyone can find a reason for the certain number of points to be dismissed, let's keep everyone guesses, like untied shoelaces, free for themselves. Season opener will tell the outcome (less than 5 weeks away!).

BTW, as far as I can see it, W-Brook got dissed on that photo, since his only chance for the NBA championship just abandoned him right there. Cute? IMO, not so much for him.

36 points, 12-24 fgs, 5-9 on 3's, 7-8 fts with 6 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 TOs, and 1 steal. Celtics pull away in the fourth due to superior fire power exploiting their poor D.

I'm also guessing there's going to be some shoving matches and stuff in this game. Kyrie and one or more Cavs will get into it, Jae will get into it with Gordon, etc.

18: seems a good choice since I cover by default the the whole 0-18 range.

I think the energy will be through the roof. Kyrie probably has a terrible first quarter but will find his rhythm and turn it on late to score 30. We'll beat the Cavs and the headlines will either start crowning us as the team to beat in the East this year or start wondering whether Lebron and the Cavs are in trouble.

I think Kyrie will play fine, probably ~24 points or so and a half-dozen assists.

I think the two guys most likely to be 'jacked' for the game will actually be Lebron and Jae Crowder, though.   

Lebron has apparently been maniacal in off-season prep for this season, still burning over losing in the Finals.  He'll want to make a statement in the first game in his own house.  And he will probably want to make that statement over Kyrie once or twice.

And Jae will come in with a big chip on his shoulder.   He tends to hit a lot of threes in his 'chippy' games.

Given its against the guy he thumbed his nose at .   

The game could turn into a epic scoring match .


Irving 35
Bron.  42   12 rebounds 10 assists

Celtics by 2 in OT

If Rose guards Kyrie the whole game, Kyrie goes off for 50!
