J.R. Smith on LeBron: "Who? The real MVP? There's a lot of speculation about who should get the award, but we all know who the real MVP is"

Chris Fedor

#Cavs J.R. Smith: "There's a lot of speculation, but we all know who the real MVP is," he says about LeBron getting a triple-double.

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs win season series vs. DET - get the 109-97 win with one remaining; @JR Smith, 8-13 3pt FG, 10-15 FG, 28pts, 2reb, 2asst.

Joe Vardon

LeBron James reaches 39th triple-double in meaningless win over Detroit. My instant analysis bit.ly/1Ew56cE

Chris Fedor

For those that still criticize Kyrie Irving's defense, while not all him I admit, Reggie Jackson had 2 points in 1st half. Has 16 in second.

Chris Haynes

I love me some Shump on the breakaway...

Chris Fedor

Iman Shumpert: Coming to Shaqtin' a Fool for what, the third straight week?

Rick Noland

if you saw LeBron chasing that 10th rebound, you know triple-doubles matter to him

Bob Finnan

That's the 39th triple-double of LeBron James' career in the regular season

Dave McMenamin

LeBron snags that elusive 10th rebound to give him 21p 10r 11a for his 2nd triple-double of the season and 39th of his career.

Joe Vardon

LeBron's got his 39th career triple-double with a rebound at 8:09. He's out for good

Rick Noland

Mike Miller in for LeBron, 7:41 to go

Bob Finnan

LeBron James grabs his 10th rebound at the 8:08 mark: 21 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists.

Rick Noland

triple double for LeBron, now get him out of game!

Chris Haynes

LeBron James has secured his second triple-double of the season -- 21 points, 10 boards and 11 assists. It's his second in last four games.

Rick Noland

timeout 8:22 left, looks like LeBron is staying in game

Joe Vardon

There's an in-game, on-court debate ongoing between Blatt and LeBron, who doesn't want to come out of this meaningless game

Joe Vardon

I don't want to hear LeBron say triple-doubles don't matter.

Rick Noland

LJ might get rebound sooner if he gave up ball on offense and went inside

Joe Gabriele

For #Cavs, Mozgov, 16pts, 13reb; @Kyrie Irving, 12pts, 3reb, 3asst before leaving game with hip tightness; CLE now 16-28, 57%, from 3pt.

Rick Noland

had a chance at another, ball hit shot clock.

Rick Noland

LJ just missed that board

Rick Noland

LeBron playing to start 4th

Joe Gabriele

All #Cavs in this one - lead, 93-73, after 3Q; JR @JR Smith, 8-12 3pt FG, 10-14 overall, 28pts; @LeBron James, 20pts, 11asst, 9reb.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs up 93-73 after 3Q. LeBron 20p 11a 9r; J.R. 28p; Mozzy 16p 13r; Kevin Love 5p 4r. We'll see if LeBron will go back in for the trip-dub

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 93, Pistons 63, end third Q. James doesn't have triple-double yet: 20 points, 9 rebounds, 11 assists. JR Smith game-high 28 points

Joe Vardon

LeBron w 13 pts in the quarter

Bob Finnan

JR Smith has made 4 of 5 3s in third Q. Is 8 of 12 behind arc in game. Has game-high 28 points

Rick Noland

J.R. 28 points, 8 of 12 from deep

Chris Fedor

LeBron wants that rebound. You can tell. Staying near the paint and darting toward the rim on every DET shot.

Dave McMenamin

J.R. Smith is already the all-time NBA leader in games w/ 7 or more made 3s & 8 or more made 3s. He has another tonight - 8-of-12 from deep

Chris Fedor

With the way Detroit is shooting (42 percent) that one rebound for LeBron's triple-double should be the easiest part of it.

Joe Vardon

LeBron a rebound away from another triple-double

Rick Noland

LeBron needs 1 rebound

Rick Noland

triple-double would be LeBron's 2nd in last 4 games played

Bob Finnan

LeBron James needs 2 rebounds for second triple-double of season: 10 points, 8 rebounds, 10 assists

Rick Noland

LeBron needs 2 reb for triple-double

Joe Vardon

Make that two rebounds

Bob Finnan

Timofey Mozgov having huge night on boards with 13. His career high is 29

Joe Vardon

James needs 3 pts and 2 rbs for his second triple-double this season

Chris Haynes

#Cavs guard Kyrie Irving sitting out rest of second half with hip tightness

Sam Amico

Kyrie Irving sitting out rest of Cavs-Pistons with hip tightness. Precautionary only, Cavs say.

Dave McMenamin

Irving is officially out for the rest of the game with right hip tightness, according to the Cavs. Calling it a precautionary measure.

Rick Noland

kyrie right hip tightness. will be held out as precaution

Chris Haynes

As a precautionary measure, #Cavs guard Kyrie Irving will not return to game tonight versus the Pistons with right hip tightness.

Chris Fedor

#Cavs Kyrie Irving is not on the bench either. He hasn't come back from the locker room. Was limping throughout the first half.

Bob Finnan

Delly started second half in place of Kyrie Irving

Rick Noland

Kyrie did not start 2nd half. no word

Chris Haynes

Matthew Dellavedova starts for Kyrie Irving in the second half.

Dave McMenamin

Delly out there to start the 2nd half at PG. Kyrie Irving has yet to emerge from the locker room.

Chris Fedor

Kyrie Irving is not on the court to start the second half.

Bob Finnan

Cleveland Cavaliers notes: Boston Celtics are likely opponent in first round bit.ly/1CR6cdu

Joe Vardon

No Kyrie to start the second half. He's been hobbling for much of the game

Bob Finnan

#Cavs have become the 11th team in NBA history to make at least 800 3-pointers in a season

Joe Gabriele

For #Cavs, @Kyrie Irving, 5-7 FG, 12pts, 3reb, 3asst; @LeBron James, 7pts, 8reb, 7asst; CLE shooting 53% FG, 53% 3pt FG (9-17), DET, 34% FG.

Chris Fedor

#Cavs playing like they should against a terrible team already on vacation. However, Kyrie Irving looking less than 100 percent is a concern

Bob Finnan

LeBron James flirting with second triple-double: 7 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists. Might not get enough minutes

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs cruising through 1H, lead, 62-37; @JR Smith, 16pts, 4-7 3pt FG; Mozgov already double-double, 10pts, 4-8 FG, 11reb.

Dave McMenamin

Cavs up 62-37 at the half. J.R. 16p (4-of-7 from 3); Kyrie 12p 3r 3a; Moz 10p 11a; LeBron 7p 8r 7a; Love 5p 3r. CLE shooting 9-of-17 on 3s

Rick Noland

Moz 10 pts, 11 reb, LJ 7 pts, 8 reb, 7 asst - triple-double watch!!

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 62, #Pistons 37, halftime. Cavs bombing away from behind arc - 9 of 17. JR Smith game-high 16 points, 4 of 7 from 3-point line

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie has been holding his right hip the last several possessions and moving with a bit of a limp. Would be surprised to see him 2nd half

Rick Noland

cavs have become 11th team in nba history to top 800 3-pointers in season. currently at 802

Chris Haynes

#Cavs became only the 11th team in NBA history to knock down 800 or more threes in a season.

Rick Noland

if lined up properly, a lot of nba players would shoot free throws better blindfolded than Andre Drummond

Joe Vardon

Kyrie favoring that right hip big time.

Chris Haynes

The ongoing issue of Timofey Mozgov and his butter fingers. Sooner or later players have to let off the heat. He's not ready for the zip.

Rick Noland

cavs have gotten a little bored with the proceedings

Rick Noland

blatt getting on ref brian forte. he picks odd times to do so, for the most part

Chris Fedor

I've never seen an NBA player change their free throw routine as much as LeBron James.

Rick Noland

with normal rotation thru 3 quarters, starters should get entire 4th off in this one

Joe Vardon

Blatt wanted to play the starters regular minutes tonight. At this rate, he may not be able to justify it

Rick Noland

pistons have golf clubs and fishing rods packed

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 36, #Pistons 14: Changed score. Gave Love a 3-pointer instead of a 2 on earlier basket

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs shooting 56% FG, 54% 3pt FG (team, 6-11; Kyrie, 2-2); DET shooting 30% FG; Cavs outrebounding Pistons, 17-6.

Chris Fedor

Make that 22-point lead. Cavs were just given their 36th point on the scoreboard. Alright!

Dave McMenamin

Cavs bring back their big guns and let loose on Detroit, leading 35-14 after 1Q. Moz 8p 8r; Kyrie 8p 3r 2a; J.R. 7p; LeBron 2p 4r 3a

Chris Haynes

Amazing how much better role players play alongside superstars. That's what make the greats great. #Cavs lead 36-14 on Pistons after one.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs 35, #Pistons 14, end first Q. Cavs shooting 56% from field; Pistons 30%. Mozgov, Irving 8 points apiece; Cavs outrebound Det, 17-6

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs bounce back from rough Sunday in BOS - take 31-14 lead after 1Q; Mozgov, 8pts, 8reb; @Kyrie Irving, 8pts, 3reb, 2asst.

Chris Fedor

#Cavs with 10 assists on 14 makes in the first half. 5/10 from three-point range. 8 offensive boards. 21-point lead.

Rick Noland

Tristan, shumpert will be top reserves in playoffs, some delly, maybe jones if things are going really well or really poorly

Sam Amico

I have a hunch the Cavs aren't losing by 39 today.

Rick Noland

blatt said cavs would use normal rotation tonight, and james jones is playing as one of four subs

Bob Finnan

#Cavs have outrebounded Pistons, 15-1

Rick Noland

van gundy has already used two fulls and a 20

Chris Fedor

Andre Drummond should be embarrassed. He's averaging 13.5 rebounds and he's just getting shoved around by the Cavs, who have 8 off boards.

Bob Finnan

Timofey Mozgov 7 points, 8 rebounds in first 7:31. Cavs on top 23-5

Joe Vardon

Mozgov has more points and rebounds than the Pistons in their entirety

Rick Noland

mercy rule needed here at Q

Joe Vardon

JR Smith didnt score in his last game Friday. He already has 7

Bob Finnan

Timofey Mozgov has 5 rebounds, 3 points in the first 4:44 of the game

Sam Amico

Rich Paul (LeBron's agent) has signed NBA Draft prospects Montrezl Harrell of Louisville and Trey Lyles of Kentucky, according to Yahoo.

Rick Noland

cavs need seven 3-pointers to become 11th team in league history to reach 800 in season

Chris Fedor

#Cavs & Pistons tonight at The Q. I have you w the LIVE chat in about 30 minutes because I don't have game story duty cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…
