Game Preview: Pistons Attempt to Avoid Sweep Against Cleveland
Down 3-0 in the first round of the NBA Playoffs to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Pistons look to avoid the broom tonight in Game 4.
The series has been tough for Detroit. In two of the first three games, the Pistons the Cavs well, but were unable to win either game. While the Pistons have yet to beat LeBron James and the Cavs, Detroit has shown they can compete but just aren’t good enough yet. What Detroit has shown is very encouraging for the future, as many of the Pistons’ players enter their prime.
PG: Reggie Jackson
SG: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
SF: Marcus Morris
PF: Tobias Harris
C: Andre Drummond
PG: Kyrie Irving
SG: J.R. Smith
SF: LeBron James

Detroit- Reggie Bullock(leg) is doubtful to play in Game 4 after missing Game 3. He played well in the first two games of the series.
Cavaliers- Mo Williams is yet to play for Cleveland in the series.
For Detroit, looking to avoid the brooms, is about the best thing they can hope for. While winning the series is highly improbable, it is not impossible. The Pistons must come out and outplay the Cavs from the start.
