PREVIEW: Cavaliers go for fifth straight win against Pistons Monday night

3. Containing Drummond and Detroit’s rebounding advantage

Tristan Thompson can’t come back soon enough, considering the battles Kevin Love has had to endure down low. After having to contend with Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan in the last two games, he will have to face off against Andre Drummond on Monday night.

Drummond is leading the league in rebounding (15.8), and has pulled down at least 12 boards in each game this season. He is also averaging a career-high 3.4 assists.

The Cavs will need to crash the boards to help take some of the pressure off Love.
