Cavaliers’ Love misses second straight game with sore foot

Cavaliers’ Love misses second straight game with sore foot

The Pistons have built a 4-0 record behind a free-flowing offense featuring Blake Griffin and some good fortune.

Griffin shot just 1-for-9 from the field before the break as Johnson was the only player to reach double figures for Detroit.

The teams will complete a home-and-home set in Boston on Tuesday night.

It's not yet known if he will be able to play Saturday night against the Indiana Pacers.

The Cavs are without All-Star power forward Kevin Love, who is out with foot soreness.

Cleveland ultimately dropped the game by the scored of 102-86 and has been outscored by a combined 58 points in four games.

"These are big growing pains and we need to get through these", he said.

Reggie Jackson has been even better - netting at least 18 points in every game this season and averaging an even 20.0 points per.

Clemson: 6 still hospitalized after party floor collapse
Jeremy Tester, who was there at the Kappa Alpha Psi-sponsored party, told CNN that he felt something odd underneath his feet. The 30 people were transported to area hospitals after officials said Clemson University Fire set up a triage at the scene.

The Cavaliers come to Detroit still smarting from back-to-back home losses and looking to turn things around by handing their longtime Central Division foes their first loss of the season. The Pistons led the Cavaliers throughout the second half but couldn't pull away. Three of the victories were against the Nets, Bulls and Cavaliers.

"I think you're always trying to get better down the stretch", Griffin said. It's a matter of one, two, three stops, that's it, and we just haven't done it yet.

The Celtics received 34 points from their reserves in the first half and built a 63-41 halftime lead. But if Blake Griffin and company can continue this momentum it won't take long for Piston fans to find their way to LCA.

"We finally looked like ourselves again", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Boston shot 14 for 34 (41.2 percent) from deep.

The Cavaliers remain winless this season after falling to the Nets by 16 points. "We're just too tense, '" Jayson Tatum told NBA.com and other media outlets. "And that was the difference in the second half". Theis led the way with 14 points and seven rebounds while former Piston Morris tossed in 11 points.

In three games, Smith has tallied 11, 15 and 21 points - shooting 59 percent from the floor and 55 percent from beyond the arc.

"He probably wanted to play here", Stevens said. "He still tries to race people off the bus after a hamstring injury". He's a competitive guy, he's a fun guy.

With Jaylen Brown struggling offensive so far this season, Brad Stevens still asked him if he wanted a shot at defending one of the NBA's hottest players.
