The new lineup for the Cleveland Cavaliers was not successful in their first game as they fell to the Atlanta Hawks 103-87. The Hawks offense was too much for the Cavaliers and shot 50 percent from the field including going 8-for-18 from three-point range.

The Cavaliers defense allowed the Hawks to have four players score in double figures with Joe Johnson scoring a game-high 28 points on an impressive 11-of-16 shooting from the field.

Alonzo Gee scored a team-high 20 points for the Cavaliers and Kyrie Irving chipped in with 19. Irving did get an increase in minutes from 30 to 37, but he was not able to take advantage of that in this game to put up more points.

Tristan Thompson Will Start At Center For Cavs, Kyrie Irving Will Get Increased Minutes

The Cleveland Cavaliers will play their first game since the trade deadline on Sunday evening when they face the Atlanta Hawks. To replace the departed Ramon Sessions, Donald Sloan has been called up and signed from Erie, and Manny Harris was re-signed for the remainder of the season as well. Harris and Sloan are not expected to see much action tonight, and neither will Luke Walton, according to Coach Byron Scott:

Other lineup changes involved the Cavaliers' two rookies, Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson. Irving will play increased minutes with Sessions now in Los Angeles. Scott said Irving will play 35 minutes per game, at least. He had been playing around 30 minutes per game to date in his rookie campaign. Thompson has been moved into the starting lineup, where he will start at center until the return of Anderson Varejao.
