CLEVELAND -- Expectations were already high for the Cavaliers this season. Once Andrew Bynum stripped off his warm-ups and stepped on the floor, they rose to another level. Cleveland could contend again. Anderson Varejaos basket with 28 seconds left -- off an assist from Kyrie Irving -- sent the Cavs to a 98-94 win on Wednesday night over the remodeled Brooklyn Nets in coach Mike Browns first game back with Cleveland. But it was the return of Bynum, the massive 7-foot centre, after a 17-month layoff that gave the Cavs a boost that could propel them for months. Bynum, who didnt play a single second for Philadelphia last season because of knee injuries, played in his first NBA game since May 21, 2012. Bynum only played eight minutes, but it was long enough for the Cavs to get a glimpse of the team they could be. "Its a big body out there blocking shots," Cavs guard Dion Waiters said. "He changed the game. He changed the momentum. Im just glad hes back out there doing what he loves to do." Varejaos jumper gave the Cavs a 93-91 lead, and Irving, who finished with 15 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds, made four free throws in the final 14 seconds to help Cleveland put it away. Brook Lopez scored 21 and Paul Pierce scored 17 in his first game for the Nets, who were without coach Jason Kidd as he serves a two-game suspension for a driving-under-the-influence conviction. Kevin Garnett, another of Brooklyns new pieces, had 10 rebounds. But the Nets, who made a blockbuster trade last summer and are over $100 million in payroll as they seek a title, didnt make enough plays down the stretch and dropped their long-awaited opener. "Everyone has to be patient," Garnett said. "Its not just because you assemble guys and things are going to just voila. Were not a perfect team by far, but we are a hard working team. Were a team with no excuses." Tristan Thompson led the Cavs with 18 points and guard Jarrett Jack scored 12 -- all in the first half when Irving got into foul trouble. After Irving made two free throws with 5.9 seconds to go, Pierce made a 3-pointer to pull the Nets within 97-94. But Varejao dropped a foul shot to give Brown his first win in his second stint with Cleveland. Brown was fired following the 2010 season, but hes back and his return should help the Cavaliers put three miserable seasons behind them. Of course, having Irving helps, too. The All-Star guard was in early foul trouble and played just 11 minutes in the first half. But he was on the floor when it mattered most, and after dribbling through traffic for several seconds with the score tied at 91-91, he alertly found Varejao near the free-throw line for his critical jumper. Bynums appearance was a mild surprise. He had been making strides in practice as he recovers knee surgeries, but only got medical clearance to play a few hours before the game. The two-time All-Star, who signed a two-year, $24 million free agent contract with Cleveland in July, came off the bench with 3:40 left in the first quarter. He checked in to a rousing ovation from Cleveland fans, many of whom wondered if they would ever see him play because of his well-chronicled knee issues. But the big man moved without any limitations and finished with three points, three rebounds, two assists and one block in eight minutes. "It was kind of like riding a bike," he said. "I dont think Ive accomplished anything yet." The Nets believe they can make a title run this year, but it could take some time for their talented lineup to gel. Deron Williams played just 22 minutes as he continues to recover from a sprained ankle, and Brooklyn missed him being on the floor in the final minutes. "Obviously it hurts but we have to go back and look at the reason why we lost this game," Pierce said. "Throughout the course of the season we have to understand its always going to be about the little things. To be a championship team, you have to clean those things up." NOTES: Cavs rookie F Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick in this years draft, missed all five shots from the field. He finished with two points and five rebounds in 15 minutes. .... While Kidd serves his suspension, assistant coach Joe Prunty is assuming head duties. ... Williams wasnt surprised by his limited minutes, but he did think he would play in the fourth. "Its tough to get into a rhythm when youre limited," he said. ... As punishment for failing to bring donuts to a recent practice, Bennett and Clevelands other rookies were forced to wear brightly colored outfits to the arena. Bennett had to wear a purple fedora and vest. "You look like Cedric the Entertainer," Thompson told him. ... Nets F Andrei Kirilenko sat out with back spasms but could play in the home opener against Miami on Friday. Tre Boston Jersey . -- David Price didnt think he would be in Port Charlotte this spring.

Corey Liuget Jersey . Almost 40 years to the day, the two teams will meet again, this time at BC Place, to celebrate the past and try to earn important points for the present.Gareth Southgate is an ideal fit for the position of England manager, says former Club England managing director Adrian Bevington. Southgate has been at the helm for four matches on an interim basis since Sam Allardyce departed after just one game in charge.Southgate appears to be in pole position to land the role on a permanent basis, having been unbeaten in his four matches, which included an emphatic 3-0 defeat of Scotland in a key 2018 World Cup Qualifier. The former Middlesbrough manager will have to wait while an FA selection panel considers their options, but Bevington told Sky Sports News HQ that Southgate is definitely the man for the job. New QPR manager Ian Holloway did not hold back when hes asked about the England managers job I think hes earned the right to be England manager, said Bevington, who was Club England managing director between 2010-2015.Hes handled things incredibly well over the last two months. Hes used to the rhythm of international football, which is very different to club football.He knows the players, the players have spoken themselves that they support Gareth, and I think the time is right for him.Hes been in the system for several years now and has always been held in high regard.Theres no doubt the circumstances that led to him taking over as interim manager were unfortunate but hes worked with the players at all the different age groups, he knows the players coming throough and, however weve reached this situation, hopefully once the panel have had their discussions and reached their decision, I think Gareth is an ideal fit.ddddddddddddThe FA have been criticised in some quarters for not having appointed Southgate yet, but Bevington says the ruling body have their reasons. England drew 2-2 with Spain on Tuesday having been 2-0 ahead He attended Tuesdays 2-2 draw with Spain and reported: Im not sure they need to interview other candidates, but process was the watchword at Wembley last night with people I was speaking to.They were very determined to have a full evaluation of the process, to learn whats worked.The FA took a lot of criticism at a recent Select Committee at Parliament over due process around the appointment of Sam Allardyce, so they need to make sure they are credible externally, but personally I think Gareth has done enough to earn the job.The performance last night alone was enough to show the players are with him and hes trying to take the style of play forward in terms of encouraging them to come out with the ball. England are unbeaten in Southgates four games in charge There was a lot of confidence on the pitch last night.I think its important he is appointed at the earliest opportunity. There isnt another fixture until March but it is important that Gareth, if they are going to appoint him, that he is given full support of the FA and, more importantly, the whole country.If hes trying to encourage the team to play with more freedom, people must understand what hes trying to do.Hes conducted himself brilliantly, the players are with him. Now is his time.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!
