Notebook: Cavaliers 93, Pistons 89


Dana Gauruder, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:20 AM - Updated Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:20 AM

THE FACT: The Cleveland Cavaliers extended their winning streak to four games on Wednesday. They haven't won that many consecutive games since an eight-game streak in March 2010, when LeBron James was still wearing their uniform.

THE LEAD: Power forward Tristan Thompson scored a season-high 25 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 93-89 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night at The Palace.

Point guard Kyrie Irving had 23 points for the Cavaliers, who snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Pistons despite trailing most of the way. Forward Josh Smith led the Pistons with 18 points and 10 rebounds and center Andre Drummond had 16 points and 17 rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "We're going to get to a point where guys understand that you've just got to find a way to win. When we get to that point, we'll have more wins like this. It's changing a little. Guys are starting to enjoy it and can't wait for the next game. That's what happens when you win."
-- Cavs forward Luol Deng on the team's winning streak

THE STAT: 8. The Pistons' late-game collapse was a fitting way for them to enter the All-Star break. They have blown eight games in which they led or were tied after three quarters. Detroit led by 10 with eight minutes to ago but once again couldn't deliver a knockout punch as Cleveland scored 34 fourth-quarter points.

TURNING POINT: Irving gave the Cavs their first lead with 2:06 remaining on two free throws. Cleveland then scored on its next three possessions behind clutch plays by Thompson and Irving. Thompson out-fought Detroit's frontcourt for two offensive rebounds, both of which he dunked home. Irving then hit the biggest shot of the game, a 3-pointer from the right side with 27.2 seconds left to give his club a four-point advantage.

HOT: Thompson was coming off a 16-point, 13-rebound performance against Sacramento on Tuesday and topped that with his best outing of the season. Coach Mike Brown was disappointed with Thompson's post defense in the early going but Thompson responded with a huge fourth quarter, collecting 14 points and seven rebounds. He outscored and out-rebounded Detroit's front line of Drummond, Smith and Greg Monroe during those 12 minutes, as that trio combined for seven points and six rebounds.

NOT: Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings had been red-hot, averaging 24.7 points in the previous 10 games. Irving and the Cavs cooled him off, as he managed just nine points and five assists in 36 minutes. Jennings too often settled for 3-point attempts instead of keeping the ball moving -- 11 of his 14 field-goal tries were from long range and he made only three. Jennings did not have a point or an assist in his seven fourth-quarter minutes.

QUOTABLE II: "I was shown the video. A couple of dance moves, we've got to work on those as a team going forward. We've got to get some practice in. Practice makes perfect when it comes to dancing, too."
-- Irving on the bench's celebration after his clutch 3-pointer

ROOKIE WATCH: Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went scoreless for the fifth time in six games. Cleveland forward Anthony Bennett couldn't build off his 19-point, 10-rebound outing against the Kings on Tuesday, contributing just two points and two rebounds in 15 minutes. Guard Matthew Dellavedova had three points and two assists in 13 minutes.

NOTABLE: Detroit guard and sixth man Rodney Stuckey, who scored four points, played only one minute of the second half after experiencing dizziness. ... Cleveland guard Jarrett Jack scored nine points and tied his season high with eight assists. ... Drummond now has 39 double-doubles, trailing only Minnesota's Kevin Love in that category. ... Smith's double-double was his sixth this season. ... Thompson's previous season high with 22 points against Atlanta on Dec. 26. His career high is 29 points. ... Deng missed all nine of his shot attempts. ... Cleveland Anderson Varejao missed his second consecutive game with a sore back.

UP NEXT: For the Cavaliers, Tuesday @ Philadelphia, Wednesday vs. Orlando, Friday @ Toronto. For the Pistons, Tuesday vs. Charlotte, Wednesday @ Charlotte, Friday vs. Atlanta.
