Pistons get pounded in Cleveland


Nance put up a career-high 22 points and 15 rebounds, while LeBron added 31 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in a big win over the struggling Pistons.

LeBron James leads in four statistical categories: points (26.7), rebounds (9.4), assists (9.1), steals (1.5) and blocks (0.9). "I've sat out some fourth quarters, but".

The Pistons open a two game homestand tomorrow night against the Toronto Raptors at Little Caesars Arena. Nance is, however, a career 55.1 percent shooter (mostly around the rim).

"It was a heck of a pass", Nance said. "So I'm sure I'll razz him about that".

Lue could use rookie Ante Zizic, who has played sparingly for Cleveland, which acquired him as part of the summer trade with Boston for Kyrie Irving.

Veteran point guard Jose Calderon was back in the rotation as well, playing 16 minutes as the Cavs improved to 19-9 in games where he's played at least 10 minutes. "I'm Larry Nance Jr.'s father". "That's why he's great".

Nance Jr. converted nine of his 15 attempts from the field, including some mid-range jumpers that had not previously been a consistent part of his game, and four of his five tries at the free-throw line on the way to the 22 points.

From an offensive standpoint, James made three straight 3-pointers while scoring 12 quick points as the Cavs went up 71-54 early in the third period.

The Pacers trailed the Bucks by two at halftime, but Bogdanovic scored 11 points in a third quarter as in took a 92-89 lead.

Lue said Hood still needs to be more aggressive with the ball and look to shoot.

"I'm just trying to be aggressive", he said. "Whatever it was, I just wasn't that comfortable shooting them in L.A".

Nance was inserted in the lineup after Tristan Thompson sprained his ankle and is expected to be out a couple of games.
