LeBron James, Cavaliers open preseason at home

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James will play his first preseason game with the Cavaliers at home before he faces his former team, the Miami Heat, in Brazil.

The Cavs will open their exhibition season Oct. 5 against Maccabi Tel Aviv, the Israeli club formerly led by new Cleveland coach David Blatt. It will be James' first game with the Cavs since re-signing with them last month as a free agent.

On Oct. 12, James and the Cavs will play the Heat in Rio De Janiero. James won two NBA titles and went to the NBA Finals four straight seasons with the Heat.

The Cavs will also play in Cincinnati on Oct. 15 against Indiana and against Chicago in Columbus on Oct. 20 on Ohio State's campus.
