Pistons Blast Cavaliers 89-79
AUBURN HILLS (97.1 THE TICKET/AP) – Brandon Knight scored a game high 17 points leading the Detroit Pistons to victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers 89-79 on Monday.
As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – the Pistons (5-13) took early command of the game leading by 17 points at the half after holding the Cavaliers to 29 percent shooting.
Detroit is 1-10 on the road but 5-3 at home, and the Pistons have recovered a bit after losing their first eight games of the season. They beat Phoenix by 40 last week in their previous home game, and the victory over Cleveland wasn’t really as close as the score indicated.
Cleveland was without guard Dion Waiters, who sat out with a sprained left ankle. Anderson Varejao had 17 points and 18 rebounds for the Cavs.
