(AP) — The Detroit Pistons’ improved defensive effort continues to pay off.

Detroit goes for its fourth straight victory overall and first three-game road winning streak in more than three years Tuesday night when it visits the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Pistons are in last place in the Central Division but have won seven of nine and three straight, including two victories over Boston last week.

Detroit (11-22) is coming off a 96-81 win over the Celtics on Sunday. The Pistons shot 37.8 percent, but scored 40 points off 24 Boston turnovers.

“I was happy with our guys,” coach Lawrence Frank said. “Their intensity, the ability through defense (being) able to create offensive opportunities, the deflections to active hands.”
