Notebook: Cavaliers 122, Pistons 100


By Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Apr 09, 2014 11:17 PM - Updated Wed Apr 09, 2014 11:42 PM

THE FACT: The Cavaliers routed the Pistons, but were eliminated from playoff contention when Atlanta beat Boston.

THE LEAD: Shooting guard Dion Waiters scored a game-high 22 points and rookie point guard Matthew Dellavedova collected 14 points and a season-best 12 assists as the Cleveland Cavaliers blew out the Detroit Pistons 122-100. Center Tyler Zeller added 18 points for Cleveland, which set a Quicken Loans Arena record with 41 assists. Point guard Brandon Jennings and power forward Jonas Jerebko paced Detroit with 17 points apiece, while center Andre Drummond rung up 11 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. The Cavaliers have not qualified for the postseason since 2010.

QUOTABLE: "It's an empty feeling you have -- not making the playoffs -- because you want to be playing for something. You think about what should've been done and could've been done, but as a man, you've got to suck it up and keep working."
-- Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving

THE STAT: The Cavaliers dished out a franchise-record 26 assists in the first half, also establishing a Quicken Loans Arena mark -- and the high-water mark in the NBA in 2013-2014. Cleveland's previous all-time best of 25 assists in a half took place on Feb. 22, 1989 vs. New Jersey and April 9, 1992 vs. Charlotte -- both in home games at The Coliseum. "That's the type of basketball we want to play every night," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. "We always tell the guys, 'You don't need to find the basketball, let the basketball find you.' They did that tonight."

TURNING POINT: Center Spencer Hawes poured in 13 points in the first nine minutes as the Cavaliers took a 31-18 lead after one quarter, setting the tone for all that followed. Dellavedova chipped in 11 points and five assists in the second period, extending Cleveland's advantage to 69-37 at intermission. The Cavaliers then stretched their lead out to 71-37 to start the second half when power forward Tristan Thompson made a mid-range jumper. "It's really important that our young guys play well at the end of the season, so that was nice to see," Irving said.

QUOTABLE II: "The better team won tonight. They outplayed us and outworked us. We were embarrassed in the first half. This is an unforgiving league, and they didn't care that we beat Atlanta last night. We didn't compete like we did last night, either."
-- Pistons interim coach John Loyer

HOT: The Cavaliers are 16-14 since firing general manager Chris Grant and have locked up their winningest season since 2009-2010. ... Irving picked up eight points, five rebounds, five assists, and three steals in 23 economical minutes. ... Brown posted his 304th victory with Cleveland, tying Bill Fitch for second place in franchise history. ... Pistons rookie point guard Peyton Siva, who had five points and four assists off the bench, is averaging 5.0 points and 3.5 assists since being placed in the rotation four games ago. ... Detroit rookie power forward Tony Mitchell grabbed a season-high six rebounds in just eight minutes.

NOT: Pistons small forward Josh Smith (left knee tendinitis) missed his second straight game and is listed as day to day. ... Detroit rookie shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope shot 1-for-7 from the field, making him 7-for-26 over the last five games. ... The Pistons have lost three in a row to Cleveland. ... Jennings missed his first 10 field goal attempts and finished the evening 5-for-17 with a team-high four turnovers. ... Drummond was 1-for-7 from the foul line. ... Cavaliers rookie small forwards Sergey Karasev and Scotty Hopson combined for zero points, three fouls, and five missed shots in 12 fourth-quarter minutes.

QUOTABLE III: "It's tough because going into the season, we thought we had a chance to make the playoffs. But I do feel better now because everybody is starting to understand what they need to do, on offense and defense to win games."
-- Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao

GOOD MOVE: Cavaliers centers Hawes, Varejao, and Tyler Zeller were aggressive from the get-go against Pistons power forward Greg Monroe and Drummond, which afforded their guards easy scoring opportunities from the weak side. The aforementioned Cleveland pivots wound up 20-for-27 from the field with 44 points, while Monroe and Drummond shot 12-for-28 with 26 points.

BAD MOVE: The Pistons have had three different coaches -- Lawrence Frank, Maurice Cheeks, and Loyer -- in their last three games in Cleveland, illustrating the ongoing impatience of owner Tom Gores. Instability on the bench is one of the main reasons why Detroit hasn't qualified for the playoffs since 2009 and has the eighth-worst record in the NBA this season at 29-50.

NOTABLE: The Cavaliers' inactives were shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain), rookie power forward Anthony Bennett (left patellar strain), and rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix (left patellar stress fracture). Miles and Bennett have resumed minor physical activity, but there is no timetable set for their return to action. ... The Pistons also played without point guard Chauncey Billups (left knee arthroscopic surgery), point guard Will Bynum (left foot soreness), and center Josh Harrellson (left knee soreness). ... University of Connecticut products Drummond and power forward Charlie Villanueva were given permission by Loyer to attend the NCAA Tournament Championship game on Monday. "I coached (Huskies coach) Kevin Ollie, so I was rooting as hard for Connecticut as they were," Loyer said. The Huskies beat the University of Kentucky to win the national title.

UP NEXT: For the Pistons, Friday @ Chicago, Sunday vs. Toronto, April 16 @ Oklahoma City. For the Cavaliers, Friday @ Milwaukee, Saturday vs. Boston, April 16 vs. Brooklyn.
