What you need to know about the Cavaliers

Cleveland has played three close games this week, escaping with wins in two of them.

This will be the fourth game of a five-game homestand for the Cavaliers, as they will host the Lakers on Monday night. Point guard Darius Garland leads Cleveland with 21.3 points and 8.4 assists per game. The Cavs are 11-3 in their last 14 home games. 

What you need to know about the Pistons

Detroit got off to a strong start this month, winning three of its first four games. The Pistons fell back to their losing ways immediately after that, dropping four games in a row. They bounced back on Thursday night, beating Orlando in a 134-120 final on the road. 

It has not been a good season for Detroit, but it has a chance to win the season series against Cleveland on Saturday night. Power forward Jerami Grant leads the team with 19.0 points per game, while second-leading scorer Cade Cunningham is adding 16.9 points.
