BASKETBALL: Le Bron James has led Cleveland to a series-opening 116-105 win over Toronto - and the Cavaliers superstar even had time to grab a beer.

James scored 35 points in the win, with Kyrie Irving adding 24, in the Eastern Conference semi-final.

After being fouled on a lay-up attempt, James grabbed a beer bottle from a courtside server who was passing by, and looked set to take a swig before putting it back.

In Tuesday's other game, Houston took a 1-0 Western Conference semi-finals series lead over San Antonio with a 126-99 win.
