Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons gamethread

It’s some in-season tournament basketball as the Cavs return home.

A few thoughts on this one....

  • Injuries continue to keep this team from being full strength. Darius Garland returns for this one, per’s Chris Fedor, but Donovan Mitchell hits the bench with a hamstring issue. Tough.
  • 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.
