DETROIT--Pistons outscored the Cavs 32-9 to start the game. Cavs worked their way back into the game, tying the game in the fourth quarter. But the Detroit Pistons made key plays late and defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-105.
After a bad loss against the Chicago Bulls last Saturday night, the Cavs had the worst possible first quarter thanks to Saddiq Bey's six three-pointers in the opening quarter.
Cavs Head Coach J.B. Bickerstaff was not pleased about his team's efforts in the first quarter:
Cavs were able to work back into the game. Collin Sexton led the Cavs with 28 points while Darius Garland scored 23 points. Sexton and Garland scored the last 20 points of the game for Cleveland.
Meanwhile, Bey had 20 points (18 in the first quarter), Isaiah Stewart had 18 points, and Josh Jackson with 16 points for the Pistons. Frank Jackson had 20 points off the bench.
