A few thoughts on this one....
- Injuries continue to keep this team from being full strength. Darius Garland returns for this one, per cleveland.com’s Chris Fedor, but Donovan Mitchell hits the bench with a hamstring issue. Tough.
#Cavs Darius Garland WILL PLAY tonight against Detroit, but Donovan Mitchell is OUT, sources tell @clevelanddotcom. That means it's once again Dean Wade going into the starting lineup, sources sayhttps://t.co/b2omW5zcT2— Chris Fedor (@ChrisFedor) November 17, 2023
- The more we’ve seen them, the more I like the City edition jerseys. The in-season tournament court is also more than fine, especially compared to some of the other ones around the league.
- It’s do or die here for the Cavaliers’ NBA Cup hopes. If they want any shot of making to Las Vegas, a win against the Pistons here is a must.
