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"
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.
I love me some Shump on the breakaway...
Iman Shumpert: Coming to Shaqtin' a Fool for what, the third straight week?
if you saw LeBron chasing that 10th rebound, you know triple-doubles matter to him
That's the 39th triple-double of LeBron James' career in the regular season
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.

timeout 8:22 left, looks like LeBron is staying in game
There's an in-game, on-court debate ongoing between Blatt and LeBron, who doesn't want to come out of this meaningless game
I don't want to hear LeBron say triple-doubles don't matter.
LJ might get rebound sooner if he gave up ball on offense and went inside
had a chance at another, ball hit shot clock.
LJ just missed that board
LeBron playing to start 4th
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

JR Smith has made 4 of 5 3s in third Q. Is 8 of 12 behind arc in game. Has game-high 28 points
J.R. 28 points, 8 of 12 from deep
LeBron wants that rebound. You can tell. Staying near the paint and darting toward the rim on every DET shot.
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
The JR Smith Show
With the way Detroit is shooting (42 percent) that one rebound for LeBron's triple-double should be the easiest part of it.
LeBron a rebound away from another triple-double
LeBron needs 1 rebound
triple-double would be LeBron's 2nd in last 4 games played
LeBron James needs 2 rebounds for second triple-double of season: 10 points, 8 rebounds, 10 assists

Make that two rebounds

Kyrie Irving sitting out rest of Cavs-Pistons with hip tightness. Precautionary only, Cavs say.
Irving is officially out for the rest of the game with right hip tightness, according to the Cavs. Calling it a precautionary measure.
kyrie right hip tightness. will be held out as precaution
Delly started second half in place of Kyrie Irving
Kyrie did not start 2nd half. no word
Matthew Dellavedova starts for Kyrie Irving in the second half.
Delly out there to start the 2nd half at PG. Kyrie Irving has yet to emerge from the locker room.
Kyrie Irving is not on the court to start the second half.
No Kyrie to start the second half. He's been hobbling for much of the game

JR 16 pts, Kyrie 12
Moz 10 pts, 11 reb, LJ 7 pts, 8 reb, 7 asst - triple-double watch!!
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
cavs have become 11th team in nba history to top 800 3-pointers in season. currently at 802
if lined up properly, a lot of nba players would shoot free throws better blindfolded than Andre Drummond
Kyrie favoring that right hip big time.
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.
cavs have gotten a little bored with the proceedings
blatt getting on ref brian forte. he picks odd times to do so, for the most part
I've never seen an NBA player change their free throw routine as much as LeBron James.
with normal rotation thru 3 quarters, starters should get entire 4th off in this one
Blatt wanted to play the starters regular minutes tonight. At this rate, he may not be able to justify it
pistons have golf clubs and fishing rods packed
Make that 22-point lead. Cavs were just given their 36th point on the scoreboard. Alright!
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
Tristan, shumpert will be top reserves in playoffs, some delly, maybe jones if things are going really well or really poorly
I have a hunch the Cavs aren't losing by 39 today.
blatt said cavs would use normal rotation tonight, and james jones is playing as one of four subs
van gundy has already used two fulls and a 20
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.
Timofey Mozgov 7 points, 8 rebounds in first 7:31. Cavs on top 23-5
Mozgov has more points and rebounds than the Pistons in their entirety
