Cavs' Porter suspended 1 game for making contact with official

Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Porter Jr. and Chicago Bulls Ryan Arcidiacono compete for the ball during the first half of an NBA basketball game Wednesday Oct. 30 2019 in Cleveland

Hayward's final shot of the game was a particularly big one, as he salvaged a missed 3-point attempt from Kemba Walker to seal the Celtics' fifth-straight win.

Collin Sexton, who scored 21 points, hit a 3 with 1:33 to play that cut Boston's lead to 116-113.

The Athletic's Jared Weiss provided additional context to the rarity of Hayward's performance by comparing it to that of other perimeter players.

Hayward made 17 of 20 shots, including a 3-pointer.

As Hayward primarily dominated inside the lane by using his patience, basketball IQ and feel for the game rather than his explosiveness - although he was able to turn to the corner to beat his man a fair amount, especially after receiving a screen - it's hard to determine if his performance against the Cavs shows that he's returned to pre-injury form. The Cavaliers gave up 114.1 points per game while committing 20 fouls last season.

"I get to see my mom", he said. "Getting to see my family is what I'm looking forward to".

Walker added 25 in the contest, and Jayson Tatum chipped in 18.

"I don't think about it", Hayward said.

"Probably a case, I don't know what the film's going to show, ball-watching", Cavaliers forward Kevin Love said. He was drafted by the Hornets in 2011 and played there for eight seasons, making the last three All-Star teams.

The matchup Tuesday is the first meeting this season between the two teams. Also probable are big men Daniel Theis (ankle) and Robert Williams (hip), while Enes Kanter (knee) has been upgraded to questionable.

CLEVELAND- The NBA suspended Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Porter Jr. for one game without pay, the league announced on Monday. You can not do that with the officials.

Cavaliers: At the Washington Wizards on Friday.
