Miami Heat at Cleveland Cavaliers Preview 01/31/18

Miami Heat at Cleveland Cavaliers Preview 01/31/18”

He was an All-Star in 2016 but was absent a year ago. "He's going to be out for quite a while - maybe two months - so it's just tough". If the injury does sideline the All-Star for somewhere between six to eight weeks, he's looking at returning to the lineup at the end of March.

With the Pistons dropping out of the playoff positions, they needed to make a change to save their season and this move could prove to be crucial.

"When it rains, it pours", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said.

Andre Drummond dominated the Cavaliers as he posted a monster double-double of 21 points and 22 rebounds on the night. His 61.3% true-shooting percentage is a career high, aided largely by his lights-out 40.4% shooting from three. "It doesn't matter how". There's a lot of meat on the bone, but one of the most interesting bits pertains to Thomas' close relationship with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert.

After some details of the meeting were leaked, there appeared to be lingering tension between Love and some other Cavaliers players.

The lineup change helped the Cavaliers win two straight before playing the Pistons on January 30.

Pistons: Detroit had 44 points in the paint in the first half.

"Right now, I'm not confident like I usually am", Thomas said about his continuing struggles to get back to his past All-Star level.

DETROIT - returned to the following a two-game absence spent by the side of his agent, Henry "Hank" Thomas, who died over the weekend at the age of 64. Wade (21,800) moved past Larry Bird (21,791) for 32nd place on the NBA's career scoring list.

National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver filled injured John Wall's All-Star roster spot with Detroit center Andre Drummond.

Love is averaging 18.2 points and 9.6 rebounds a game.

The Pistons are hopeful Griffin and Drummond will develop good chemistry together, the way Griffin did with DeAndre Jordan while with the Clippers. "We didn't know why he wasn't on the bench supporting his teammates and why he wasn't in the locker room after the game". They slowly whittled away at Detroit's lead in the second, until an Isaiah Thomas three-pointer put Cleveland up, 50-49, with 4:56 to play in the quarter.

"It's a huge blow for our team, obviously", LeBron James said late Tuesday following a 125-114 loss to the Detroit Pistons, who were short-handed following their trade for Blake Griffin.

James and the Cavs will look to get back to their winning ways on Wednesday, when they host his former team, the Miami Heat, for a 7:30 p.m ET tip. All eyes will be on Griffin's availability for the next game on Thursday against Memphis.
