The Cavaliers took the show on the road for their first preseason game against an NBA opponent – welcoming Milwaukee to the Canton Civic Center. The Bucks were less than gracious guests, however, rolling over the Wine and Gold – 97-80 – on Tuesday night.

One night after topping the Euroleauge’s Montepaschi Siena at The Q, the Cavaliers turned in an offensively uneven performance in central Stark County on Tuesday. Only two players – Cleveland’s starting backcourt of C.J. Miles and Kyrie Irving -- notched double-figure scoring.

It’d be hard for someone Tristan Thompson’s size – with his skill and personality – not to be a team’s natural center of attention as a rookie. A kid like that would’ve to had to been drafted on the same team as the Rookie of the Year.

Oh. Right.
