Cavs cruise past Detroit Pistons
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Kevin Love tied a career-best with eight 3-pointers for 24 points and LeBron James added 19 points and 11 assists as the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied in the second half to beat the Detroit Pistons 102-93 on Tuesday night.
Love fell just one short of teammate J.R. Smith’s record of nine 3-pointers against Detroit. Love missed both his two-point attempts.
James nearly had an odd triple-double, turning the ball over nine times, one short of his career high. Kyrie Irving added 18 points for Cleveland, which has won 17 of its last 19 games.
Reggie Jackson had 22 points, nine assists and eight rebounds in his second game with Detroit, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 21.
Tayshaun Prince started at small forward in his first game as a Piston since he was traded to Memphis in January 2013.
