1. What a difference two days makes
The Pistons look very different than they did just 48 hours ago. In case you missed it, yesterday Detroit shipped off Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley to the L.A. Clippers in exchange for Blake Griffin. Griffin, however, won’t be active in today’s game. The Pistons have lost eight straight and will have a pretty big chunk of their roster riding the pine tonight.
Over the last four years, this is the kind of game the Cavs have had a hard time with. Despite the changes and the absences, they will still need to remained focused if they want to come away with a win. They’ll especially need to focus on locking down Andre Drummond in the middle.
