NBA – The Pistons Drop Game One

Posted on April 18, 2016 in Professional Sports News.

Kyrie Irving scored 31 points in his first playoff game since being injured in last year’s NBA Finals.

Kevin Love added 28, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 106-101 win over the young and confident Detroit Pistons in the opener of their first-round playoff series Sunday.

LeBron James added 22 points and 11 assists for the top-seeded Cavs, who are favored to win the Eastern Conference again but got all they could handle from the Pistons.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 and Marcus Morris 20 — but just one after halftime — for the Pistons, making their first playoff appearance since 2009.

Andre Drummond had 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Detroit made 15 3-pointers.

Game 2 is Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena
