Just Like Ole Times, Baby!

Coming off a loss to Orlando on Monday, the Cavs came into the Q and handled business against their long-time rivals, the Detroit Pistons.  They played killer instinct defense and held the Pistons to only 73 points in the game, the fewest they’ve allowed all season.

Here’s the rundown:

  • Ben Wallace joked with his former teammates before the game, but frustrated them during it.  He held Rasheed Wallace to 1/7 from the field in the first half and 6/17 for the game.  He blocked shots, altered shots, and even hit few baskets (including a put back jumper to beat the buzzer at the end of the 2nd quarter).

  • Mike Brown’s rotations looked fairly solid.  He gave the Pistons a steady dose of big men off the bench, and subbed quickly off mismatches. 
  • The team went on a 9-0 run to end the 2nd quarter, and went into the half up by 7 (45-38).
  • Andy Varejao provided good energy off the bench, and pulled in 6 points and 6 boards.
  • Lebron was just that…Lebron.  He was 11/19 from the field and 6/7 from the freethrow line, pulling in 30 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists.
  • The Cavs had a field day in the 4th quarter, shooting 68% from the field.  Lebron hit 11 of his 30 points in that quarter, going 4-5 from the floor.
  • Zydrunas Ilgauskas got off to a good start and finished with 20 points and 8 boards.
  • The Cavs held the Pistons to only 39% shooting from the field.  What a difference from the Pistons game the night before against Denver where they shot 60%.
  • Wally Szczerbiak, who has been struggling to find his shot since the trade, pulled in a solid 10 points on 4/7 shooting. 
  • The Cavs got a 89-73 win, tied the season series at one a piece, and extended their home-winning streak to 8.
