CLEVELAND -

Tristan Thompson scored 17 points, Kyrie Irving added 14 and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 99-87 in the preseason opener for both teams Tuesday night.

Cavaliers coach Mike Brown returned to the Cleveland bench for the first time since being fired following the 2009-10 season.

Brown coached the Lakers in 2011-12 before being let go five games into last season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, an 18-year-old guard from Greece who was the Bucks' first-round draft choice, scored 14 points.

Stephen Graham led Milwaukee with 15.

Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova left the game in the second quarter with a sprained right ankle and was helped to the locker room.

He did not return and scored six points in nine minutes.
