IT'S THE CAVS-PISTONS ON A WEDNESDAY

After four games in a row against the NBA's heavyweights, Cleveland welcomes the Detroit Pistons to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse for a Wednesday night matchup. Detroit is coming off a win over Philly on Monday.

LAST TIME OUT

The Cavs played the defending champs tough on Monday, but ultimately, LeBron James proved too much in the fourth quarter. Andre Drummond had a 25-point, 17-rebound double-double and Cedi Osman chipped in with 20 points of his own.
