Cavs' Porter suspended 1 game for making contact with official

Cavaliers rookie Kevin Porter Jr. suspended

Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward had an all-time great performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night, scoring a game-high 39 points while shooting an ultra-efficient 17-20 (85.0%) from the field and going 16-16 from inside the arc. "He did a good job when they were guarding him with big guys". The Cavaliers gave up 114.1 points per game while committing 20 fouls last season. "He did a good job when guarded by small guys". Stevens said Kanter "really wants to play, but our medical staff doesn't feel like he's ready yet.".

Walker added 25 in the contest, and Jayson Tatum chipped in 18.

Chamberlain would finish that game, a 132-129 win over the Baltimore Bullets, with 37 points and 30 rebounds. In the 2016-17 season, when he made his first All-Star team, Hayward averaged 21.9 points.

Graham sank two of three from the free-throw line with 1.7 seconds remaining to ice the win, the Hornets' third in a row.

"To continue to play this way, to be poised and unfazed, he's grown right before our eyes", Hornets coach James Borrego said of Graham.

"I don't think about it", Hayward said. "I think we all realize that". "He's a special player". F Jaylen Brown (illness) worked out in Boston and could join the team in Charlotte. Forward PJ Washington (left leg contusion) is probable.

It's been a long wait for the star, who missed all but one game in the 2017-18 season due to the injury, then returned to average 11.5 points (his lowest mark since his rookie season) in 2018-19.

Celtics: C Enes Kanter (bruised left knee) missed his fifth straight game.
