Tremendous atmosphere in the Palace tonight. I've only been doing this 5 years, but by far the best crowd. Fun to see basketball return here
Kevin Love has a chance at Kobe/Donyell Marshall's record of 12 threes in a game. He is 8-for-13 from 3 with 5 mins to go in the 3rd.
So Kevin Love is having a night (24 pts, 8 3s). LeBron: 10 pts, 9 ast, 4 rbs
Cavs in bonus at 7:18 of third. Let's see if they take advantage
7-0 run for the Cavs since DET took a 14-point lead and Cavs called timeout.
Cavs trail the Pistons 62-53 at the half. Love 12p 5r; LeBron 10p 5a 4r. DET led by Reggie Jackson's 15p 5r 4a.
Perkins illegal screen. Foul number two in 2 minutes.
LeBron is called for a foul and the Pistons' crowd lets out a sarcastic cheer
Perkins picks up his first PF as a Cavalier, but (of course) got his money's worth -- planted a forearm into A. Tolliver's chest.
LeBron grabbed left knee and then right wrist after that fall
Perkins wearing No. 3. That number went back into circulation quickly
And here he comes. Cleveland, meet Kendrick Perkins
Kendrick Perkins checking into the game at next dead ball
Cavs down, 53-46 -- their biggest deficit in 118 minutes of play since the All-Star Break.
With Monroe and Drummond, Detroit is the kind of team Perkins could be useful. But he just arrived, so...
Piston with their biggest lead of the night. It's 7 points. LeBron hops off the bench for the final three and a half minutes.
It's like 2005 in here with Prince dunking and making 3s for Detroit
Love has 12 points now. All four makes have been three-pointers. He's 4-7 from distance in 12 minutes of action.
And with Love's 3ball, James is now the NBA's all-time leader in assists at the forward position
Three fouls now on Mozgov in the first half.
What a difference when Mozgov catches the ball
Few things more entertaining than Stan Van Gundy's 48-minute conniptions. Brewing another great batch tonight.
LeBron just tied Scottie Pippen (6,135) for the most assists by a forward in NBA history
Cavs up 30-27 after 1Q in DET. Love 9p 4r; LeBron 5p 2a. Reggie Jackson 8p 3a for Pistons.
James Jones, in at 2:44 of first. Interesting
Perk earlier tonight: "I’m a good guy if I’m on your team ... I feel like if another team don’t like me, then I done my job for the night."
Kevin Love now running guys off 3-pt line. Honest.
Not sure I've ever seen this many people at a Pistons game. Most are even cheering for the home team. Good to see
Great sight lines in Detroit http://t.co/IxNb1xG3Lf
Perkins on LeBron: "We’re always so cool. I know what he's all about being the leader of this team, I just wanted to come be a part of it."
Perkins, pt 2 on being loved as teammate/not as an opponent: "I feel like if another team don’t like me, then I done my job for the night."
Perk on being loved as teammate, not as a foe: "I know a lot of teams don’t like me, but that’s fine. I’m a good guy if I’m on your team."
Perkins just gave excellent interview, including this: It was between "the Doc and the King. I chose the King"
Kendrick Perkins on choosing between the Cavs and the Clippers: "It was Doc or The King ... I went with The King"

More Perkins http://t.co/KFm0GpdOZ7
Perkins, preparing http://t.co/IhHCLqpu2i
With 5 assists, LeBron would pass Scottie Pippen for the most assists by a forward in NBA history
Perkins is the 7th member of the 2003 draft class that LeBron will team w/ joining Bosh, Wade, Pavlovic, Kapono, M. Williams & J. Jones
The Cavs make the Kendrick Perkins signing official. He'll be available for tonight's game vs. Detroit and be wearing No. 3.
Cavs make Kendrick Perkins signing official.
My hotel has free hot chocolate. And I am taking full advantage!!
Cavs hopeful Kendrick Perkins' contract/paperwork complete for Pistons tonight. If not, Cavs debut will be Thursday vs Warriors.
#Cavs at #Pistons: Cavs have won 16 of last 18 games. It will likely be a battle tonight at The Palace. clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2015/02/game-5…
