TNT had a funny snafu when Kyrie Irving scored the first basket of the NBA season

The NBA season tipped off on Tuesday night with the highly anticipated matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics.

Not only is the game a rematch of the Eastern Conference Finals and a matchup between the two favorites again this season, it also marked the return of Kyrie Irving to Cleveland for the first time since being traded less than two months ago.

The odd sight of seeing Irving in green apparently even fooled the people working the scorebug for TNT. Irving scored the first basket of the NBA season, and sure enough, the TNT production crew gave two points to the Cavs.

We can't make it up. Here is the video.

Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome broken ankle just minutes into his first game with the Celtics

Gordon Hayward suffered severe broken ankle just over five minutes into his first game with the Boston Celtics.

The incident came in the first quarter when Hayward went towards the basket and jumped to catch a lob pass. There was only minimal contact and Hayward seemingly just landed awkwardly on his left leg when it broke. 

Video of the injury can be found below.

The sound could be heard over the television broadcast and it was immediately obvious that Hayward had broken his leg just above his left ankle.

A hush immediately fell over the crowd and players were shown with shocked looks on their faces while other players were seen praying.

The Cavaliers bench reacted in horror when they saw Gordon Haywards awful injury

Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome broken leg just minutes into his first game with the Boston Celtics.

The injury could be heard over the television broadcast and once everybody in the arena realized what happened, a hush came over the crowd, followed the faint sounds of people whispering in shock.

Even without seeing the injury, the severity of the moment could be detected by seeing the reaction of players sitting near Hayward on the Cleveland Cavaliers' bench. They didn't see the injury immediately, but when they did, they all either turned their heads or covered their face in horror.

Just brutal.
