Luol Deng was a winner in his first game as a Cleveland Cavaliers.

The individual numbers weren't as superb as they had been before the All-Star forward was traded by the Bulls, but it was a winning night nonetheless, as the Cavs knocked off the Jazz, 113-102, in Salt Lake City.

Deng's night was a stark contrast in one category: minutes. Tom Thibodeau at times drew criticism for playing Deng as much as he did. Well, Deng got to take it relatively easy under new coach Mike Brown, playing just 21 minutes in the win. Deng finished with 10 points and just one rebound, plus a steal and a game-high four turnovers.

The Bulls traded Deng to Cleveland earlier in the week in exchange for several draft picks and Andrew Bynum, who the team immediately waived.
