Larry Nance Jr's sit down with Jamie Redknapp

Cleveland acquired Nance from the Los Angeles Lakers as part of a four-player deal at the trade deadline.

"Everybody knows I love Cleveland", Nance said Saturday when asked about his impending contract extension.

Kevin Love scored 21 points and Cedi Osman had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Cavaliers. I mean, I've been able to play there a few times.

Cavs All-Star Kevin Love hasn't received many technical fouls over the course of his career. It feels a bit like the Cavaliers are negotiating with themselves here, as it's hard to imagine any rival team giving Nance the bag and forcing Cleveland to match an offer they're not prepared to match. The 27-year-old missed his first three shots before Lowry gave up an easy basket for a pass to the trailing Leonard four minutes into the game.

To mark the start of the 2018/19 National Basketball Association season on Sky Sports, we take a look back at Cleveland Cavaliers star Larry Nance Jr's sit down with Jamie Redknapp in the Super Sunday studio back in August.

"The Cavs wanted to get this done", Pluto said. Patience has worn thin among the public in terms of how the Congolese veteran is viewed after a disappointing regular season and a complete disappearing act in the playoffs in 2017-18, but, truth be told, the Raptors also need him.

Larry Bird used to say how much he loved going into a hostile arena and quieting the home crowd. "We're going to have to go after every loose ball that we can, we're going to have to be the team that dives on the floor".

"I'm actually at a loss for words right now", Nance said about the extension.

In Houston, where Anthony linked up with pals Chris Paul and James Harden to offer yet another offensive option (albeit a redundant one) to the Rockets, it was not a smooth start. We know he's going to get plenty of opportunities. I grew up here.

It's quite possible that if Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue didn't make the move to go small in the fourth quarter after Valanciunas was re-inserted, Ibaka would have played about 22 minutes to the Lithuanian's 25. "I'd like to keep it a little fluid, only because I think this is a super versatile team and I'd like to keep us in a versatile mindset, especially starting out here".
