WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says there were pluses and minuses from Monday’s game for the Cavs.

The Cavs won their highly-anticipated season opener against Kyrie Irving and the Celtics, 102-99. Irving demanded to be traded over the summer and landed in Boston. The new-look Cavs added Derrick Rose, Jae Crowder and LeBron James' former Miami Teammate and friend, Dwyane Wade.

Add them to James and Kevin Love, and the court can feel a little crowded.

“You have so many guys who are used to shooting the ball, and you only have one ball,” said WKSU commentator Terry Pluto.
