AUBURN HILLS, Michigan– The Cavaliers won their 4th game in a row on Wednesday, beating the Pistons, 93-89, at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Tristan Thompson led the Cavs in scoring, cashing in on 25 markers as the Cavs overcame a fourth quarter deficit to win. 14 of Thompson’s points came in the paint as he played strong underneath.

The Cavs trailed 83-82 thanks to a Josh Smith slam for Detroit.

Then Kyrie Irving and Thompson got busy. Thompson scored to put the Cavs up, 84-83. Irving scorched a path to the basket, but a defender got a piece of the ball. Thompson was there to put it in for a three-point lead. Irving drilled a long three-pointer with 27.2 seconds left to put the Cavs up by four and they held on.

Irving had 23 points to aid the cause as the Cavs did not have Anderson Varejao for the second straight night.

Winning on the road in the second of back-to-back games was a good sign for the Wine and Gold. Thompson and Irving were the only Cavs in double figures.

Now Irving and Waiters head to Houston for the All-Star festivities.

Waiters will play in the Rising Stars game. Irving will start for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star Game and defend his title in the Long Distance Shootout.

    I never thought firing Chris Grant would have this kinda effect on on team chemistry, but it’s nice to see you guys play hard every night since he’s been canned. Whatever has changed this teams outlook let’s keep it up. About time fellas, better late than never
