#Cavs have hit #Pistons with 7 triples, but deficit only 3. Drummond back-to-back lay-ups. He has 8 and 6.

Shaun Powell

Not only did Cavs surrender the Rookie of the Year for K-Love, but Wiggins is on a rookie contract. Cheap for 3 years.

David Mayo

Joe Vardon

LeBron is really setting up teammates tonight. #Cavs have missed their last four shots though

Timofey Mozgov's athleticism, on both ends, is a factor in Detroit. Extremely coordinated for a guy his size. Cavs up 39-33.

Kevin Pelton

LeBron James just got blocked by Tayshaun Prince in a Cavaliers-Pistons game. What year is it?
