After feelers were sent out on the expected Christmas day matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors a few days ago, another report has come out on a very important night for the Wine the Gold.

According to ESPN’s Ian Begley, it’s starting to look like the Cavs will be opening their season at the Quicken Loans arena against the New York Knicks.
