Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons Preview: All I want for Christmas is a win

The Cavs are looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss in Chicago Saturday night as they face another Central Division opponent in the Detroit Pistons.

Twas the last game before Christmas, and all through the Q,

Everybody was waiting, especially you,

The nets have been hung on the rims with care,

Hoping that Anthony Bennett could get his butt up there.

The Cavaliers will warm up, decked out in their threads,

With thought of a divisional victory, running through their heads,

Irving shoots the ball, causing the net to splatter,

Jennings trying to cover, causes me laughter.

Carr and McLeod on the call, as we watch the clock tick,

Watching Irving play, we thank St. Nick (Gilbert).

Who? Detroit Pistons (13-16) vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (10-16)

When? 7:00 PM ET

Where? Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland OH

Where on my eyeballs? Fox Sports Ohio/ NBA Leaguepass



And now I present you with the Twelve Keys to the Cavs game.

On the last game before Christmas, the Cavs gave to me:

12 missed Drummond free throws

11 deleted gamethread comments

10 Smith long two's

9 Bynum post ups

8 pull up JJ jumpers

7 point Cavs win

6 missed Monroe rotations

5 of last 6 at the Q

4 Tigger jams

3 missed games for Dion :(

2 game losing skid for Detroit

and a Irving crossover that's just silly.

Fear the Sword's Fearless Prediction

Cavs give us something to be happy about over the next few days. Win 104-97
