The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost their fifth game in a row. In their last game, they lost the lead in the final minutes of the game and were that close in ending the losing streak. Kevin Love was the team’s top scorer with 30 points and nine rebounds while Collin Sexton had 20 points. Three other players made double-digit production and they were Darius Garland with 13, Cedi Osman had 17 while Brandon Knight finished with 13. Tristan Thompson was slapped with a Flagrant 1 against Andre Drummond but it was critical along the way. The Cavs should have won this game and their late-game decisions doomed them with the Pistons stealing this from them.
