CLEVELAND — No, Kyrie Irving, no Dion Waiters, no win for the Cleveland Cavaliers who lost their fifth straight falling to the Detroit Pistons 104-97.
Oh what a night for Brandon Knight who scored a career-high 30 points for the Pistons who beat Cleveland for the second time in six days.
The Cavs were led by Jeremy Pargo who had 24 points. Anderson Varejao who has been a big boost for the Cavs this season had 16 points but Cleveland was outscored in 27-18 in the third and that was the difference in the game, Cleveland could never close the gap.
The Cavs are off until Tuesday when the Los Angeles Lakers make their only trip to Quicken Loans Arena.
