LeBron James thankful Cavs finally paid attention to detail
You could feel the sense of relief in LeBron James after his Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics on the road Sunday.
Playing their first game with all the new players they acquired at the trade deadline, the Cavs took it to the C’s on the road with a 121-99 win. James only needed to play 28 minutes while the new-look Cavs spread around the minutes.
After the game, James expressed his relief that the Cavs finally paid attention to detail. He also pointed out how the team’s new players could create their own opportunities.

Cleveland got rid of six players and brought in four new ones as part of their roster reshaping. The early returns suggest the moves paid off. More than anything else, bringing in some new blood and getting rid of some others seems to be exactly what they needed.
