The Pistons came into Tuesday night’s matchup in Cleveland with a lot of momentum from winning their last few games. All of that momentum and confidence was squandered when LeBron James and his squad demolished the Pistons 128-96.
Detroit failed to show much grit even in the early going of this one. The Cavs led 44-26 at the end of the first quarter. Cleveland shot 63.3% from behind the arc in the game and 59.7% overall. LeBron James finished with another triple double.
The Pistons were the polar opposite with their shooting; they shot an abysmal 21.1% from behind the arc and 37.4% overall.
Unfortunately, there is not much else to say about this game other than “the Pistons got their butts whooped”. Once Detroit witnessed a few Cleveland three pointers go in, they appeared to have given up on the defensive end.
The Pistons fall to (33-34) and will host the Jazz (42-25) Wednesday night.
