Detroit Pistons Game Recap: When It Rains, It Pours

Detroit Pistons Game Recap: When It Rains, It Pours

Speaking of injury, the Cavaliers received potentially bad news on Tuesday night, as Kevin Love left the contest after just five minutes with a hand injury. As a five-time All-Star, the 29-year-old could have potentially been used as part of a package to take someone like Drummond or DeAndre Jordan to Cleveland to give the Cavaliers a dominant defensive presence at center.

Last meeting: The Cavs won 108-97 on November 28 at The Q. In Cleveland though, they will have their work cut out, even despite the Cavs' seemingly endless issues.

The story floating around last night was the Clippers did the Griffin deal with an eye on trying to get an audience with LeBron James in July and having enough flexibility to potentially include another marquee player like Paul George, stealing a page out of the Lakers' dream plan. Defensively, the Cavaliers need to improve as they are 26th out of 30 teams in the league, allowing just shy of 110 points per game. He went in for X-rays after the play and did not return.

But in the second half, the momentum belonged to the Pistons.

If anyone knows what it's like to leave a franchise on his volition and experience massive blowback, it's Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James. We'll be getting a lot smaller now.

Love sustained a non-displaced fracture in his left hand fifth metacarpal, the team announced on Tuesday.

"Kevin Love likely out 6-8 weeks".

"It's very important", Lue said.

With a major player changing situations, things seem like they might be starting to heat up on a number of fronts. In those two games, Cleveland scored 118 points per game.

"It's a huge blow for our team".

Love's injury will likely affect the Cavs' plans as the February 8 trading deadline approaches. "It sucks, it sucks big time".

The UCLA product is averaging 18 points and 9 rebounds for the Cavs this season. Korver ended his night with 10 points.

"They would have said we were insane", Whiteside said. "As far as Kevin, it's a tough break because he's been playing so well". They are now 29-10 and six games out of first out east.

Point guard Isaiah Thomas came forward to deny there was any "bad blood" between him and Love, but it was clear the turmoil hadn't totally subsided.

Cavaliers guard Dwyane Wade, who played with Dragic in Miami, tweeted: "It's time to put Goran Dragic in the All-Star Game".

With the two bigs together on the floor, the Pistons could potentially recreate "Lob City" in Detroit, with Drummond occupying the role DeAndre Jordan did for so many years alongside Blake.
