Pistons improve to 4-0 with win over Cavaliers

Detroit Pistons logo

Drummond has been an elite rebounder with 17.8 points per game (ranks first in the league) and has been particularly impactful on the offensive glass (6.0 offensive rebounds per game). The Cavaliers were outrebounded 48-to-30 in defeat.

A key reason for those rough numbers is how badly Cleveland is losing on the three-point line, as they are last in three-pointers made per game and have given up the second-most per game. Blake Griffin also had 26 points while grabbing 10 boards for Detroit. That is what is staring Cleveland and head coach Tyronn Lue in the face, though, and it's unclear how much hope there still is for this year now.

CLEVELAND (103): Osman 1-8 0-0 3, Frye 2-4 0-0 5, Thompson 3-8 0-0 6, Hill 6-11 3-3 15, Hood 4-12 2-2 10, Nance Jr.

Kyle Korver led Cleveland with 21 points.

A 40-point third quarter helped it erase a 16-point halftime deficit.

Kevin Love (Out - Foot Soreness): The Cavs have listed Love as OUT for Thursday's game (Oct. 25) against the Pistons. Detroit was able to close the game out after that.

Tatum leads the Celtics in scoring (18.8 points per game) and rebounding (9.6).

But the Boston Celtics made sure it did Saturday, dominating the previously undefeated Detroit Pistons, 109-89, two nights after a 16-point second half comeback in Oklahoma City.

James scored 45 points in Game 7 and the Cavaliers survived their toughest test in reaching the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season.

The Cavaliers dropped to 0-5 to start a season for the first time since 2003, Lebron James' rookie campaign. Detroit's offense lacked rhythm in the early going, but Stanley Johnson's 11 first-quarter points kept his team within striking distance. He's averaging 19.0 points and 13.5 rebounds, but is shooting just 32.3 percent from the field.

The Celtics led 63-41 at the half and kept a double digit for nearly the entirety of the final three quarters.
