Game Preview: Pistons Look to Continue Surge in Meeting Versus Cavs

The Detroit Pistons(33-33) face the Cleveland Cavaliers(43-22) tonight at 7:00p.m. Detroit is away for today’s contest. 

Cleveland was defeated in a close contest with the Houston Rockets, 117-112, on Sunday. LeBron James scored 30 points, grabbed seven rebounds, and handed out five assists. Kyrie Irving finished with 28 points and eight assists. The common problem for the Cavs as of late is that James and Irving are not getting enough help. That was once again the issue for the Cavs on Sunday. 

The Pistons come into tonight’s game off of a win against the New York Knicks on Saturday. Tobias Harris led the Pistons with 28 points, 23 of which came in the first half. Andre Drummond had another great game, scoring 24 points and corralling 15 rebounds. Reggie Jackson added 19 points and eight assists.
