No Final Thoughts. One laptop fried on me tonight, forcing me to race home for another. It's so old I barely got story in. Try again Weds.

Rick Noland

well, don't step back. be behind the arc when you get the ball is what I meant, rather than shoot 22-footer

Rick Noland

I've long believed a 22- to 23-footer is worst shot in nba. step back to 23-9 and make it worth 3 pts

Rick Noland

after tonight, six teams could have 800 threes this season. seven had it in league history prior to this season. shoot 3 rather than long 2

Cleveland Cavaliers 109, Detroit Pistons 97: LeBron James secures triple-double bit.ly/1FId58f

Rick Noland

Portland needs 8 threes tonight to make it 13 teams in history with 800 in season --- and sixth team this season

Rick Noland

12 teams have now made 800 3s in a season in nba history. Houston, Golden St, Atlanta, Clippers and Cavs did this season.

LeBron James when asked by @FSOAllieOop postgame what does it take to be a champion: http://t.co/vuiIM5vugZ

Bob Finnan

LeBron James said he was able to get his 10th rebound while the Cavaliers were trying to get the win over Detroit. tout.com/m/fwinlb?ref=t…

Sam Amico

LeBron records triple-double, as Cavs take no pity on Pistons. foxsports.com/ohio/story/leb…

Rick Noland

LeBron was uncertain when asked if he would play Wed

Rick Noland

Kyrie left locker room before reporters were allowed in, Blatt said injury not serious but Cavs need to be cautious

Rick Noland

“We played some good basketball,” James said. “We wanted to try to keep our rhythm -- the rhythm we had before guys sat out.”

Rick Noland

“We played hard and we played right,” Blatt said. “That’s what we needed before the playoffs and we got it.”

Rick Noland

“We did exactly what we wanted to do,” coach David Blatt said.

Rick Noland

James: "Tonight it was like we didn't sit out any games at all"

Rick Noland

“LeBron had played a heckuva game,” Blatt said. “He wanted a shot to get the 10th rebound and I was happy to oblige.”

Rick Noland

Blatt didn't dispute that LeBron lobbied to stay in game in pursuit of triple-double, but James denied it

Another good win and one more game to start the #Playoffs-Let's go @Cleveland Cavaliers/Mais uma boa Vitória e so falta 1 jogo pra começarem os #Playoffs

Chris Fedor

#Cavs head coach David Blatt says Kyrie Irving should be OK. Nothing serious. Felt tightness in his right hip.

Dave McMenamin

David Blatt on Kyrie's R hip: "Not serious but something that we need to be cautious about ... He should be OK"

Chris Haynes

#Cavs G Kyrie Irving (hip) just walked out arena in good spirits and without complications. Precautionary, it was.

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

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

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

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.

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

Rick Noland

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

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
