(AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are both rebuilding, and it’s clear that their rookie point guards continue to provide excellent building blocks.

Kyrie Irving and Brandon Knight are the league’s top rookie scorers and meet for the third time Wednesday night when the Cavaliers host the Pistons.
Irving was chosen No. 1 by Cleveland (17-30) and Knight at No. 8 by Detroit (17-32), and both teams have to be happy with their selections. The Cavaliers guard leads all rookies with 18.6 points per game, with Knight second at 12.5.
