With the NBA season set to start on Tuesday, looks like Boston will start Duke products Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Tatum wasn’t expected to start, but Marcus Morris is out with a sore knee so Tatum gets the nod.

As for Luke Kennard, he probably won’t start for the Pistons but expectations are rising.
