Who’s Playing

Cleveland @ Detroit

Current Records: Cleveland 30-19; Detroit 11-37

What to Know

The Cleveland Cavaliers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Detroit Pistons at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at Little Caesars Arena after having had a few days off. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, the Cavaliers have to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.

Cleveland had enough points to win and then some against the Milwaukee Bucks this past Wednesday, taking their contest 115-99. Power forward Kevin Love (25 points) and small forward Cedi Osman (23 points) were the top scorers for Cleveland. Osman had some trouble finding his footing against the New York Knicks last week, so this was a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, Detroit received a tough blow this past Friday as they fell 119-103 to the Orlando Magic. Shooting guard Cade Cunningham had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 30 minutes but putting up just eight points on 3-for-17 shooting.

Cleveland’s win brought them up to 30-19 while Detroit’s defeat pulled them down to 11-37. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Cavaliers come into the game boasting the fewest fouls per game in the league at 16.6. On the other end of the spectrum, the Pistons are second worst in the league in fouls per game, with 21.3 on average. Keep an eye on whether or not foul trouble puts Detroit in a difficult position.
