Cavaliers' Love misses second straight game with sore foot


Andre Drummond powered for 26 points and 22 rebounds for Detroit to remain unbeaten with a 110-103 National Basketball Association victory over the winless Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers cut the margin to six with 49 seconds left in the fourth when Korver made a 3-pointer while being fouled for a four-point play. Three of the victories were against the Nets, Bulls and Cavaliers.

Dwane Casey has coached Detroit to its best start in a decade. Cleveland may boast a positive attendance record of 19,432 tickets sold through two games, but that doesn't reflect how many seats were actually filled at the onset of the contest.

With Love out, forward Sam Dekker could start in place of the five-time All-Star as he did during the preseason.

A remote Hawaiian island just disappeared beneath the sea overnight
Just days after one of the most powerful hurricanes ever to hit the Pacific, one remote Hawaiian archipelago was all but gone. He was the second-largest island in the French-frigate-shoals, the largest Atoll of the northwestern Hawaiian Islands.

Neither the Brooklyn Nets nor the Cleveland Cavaliers (post-LeBron) are expected to draw big crowds anytime soon. They combined for just one assist against Detroit. Kennard exited Friday's game between Cleveland and Detroit with a shoulder injury.

The Pistons host the Boston Celtics tomorrow night.

CLEVELAND (103): Osman 1-8 0-0 3, Frye 2-4 0-0 5, Thompson 3-8 0-0 6, Hill 6-11 3-3 15, Hood 4-12 2-2 10, Nance Jr. Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, but he shot 5 for 20. Drummond added 22 rebounds and Griffin, who was coming off a career-high 50-point effort earlier in the week against Philadelphia, added 10 boards. Totals 41-78 17-29 110.

But with 30 seconds remaining and the Cavaliers trailing 108-101, rookie Collin Sexton battled three Pistons players to the floor chasing a loose ball in front of the Detroit bench. That is what is staring Cleveland and head coach Tyronn Lue in the face, though, and it's unclear how much hope there still is for this year now.
