Detroit Pistons Game Recap: The Larry Nance Jr. Show

08 March 2018

The Cavaliers defeated the Pistons 112-90 on Monday night at the Quicken Loans Arena, with Nance having a career-night with 22 points, 15 rebounds, an assist, two steals, and he was 9-of-15 from the field. "The guys gave me all the opportunities in the world to make my shots, and I just happened to be making them".

James made five of seven shots from beyond the three-point arc and added seven rebounds and seven assists. The Cavaliers have really cooled off since the All-Star break and they've only covered in six of their past 28 games against teams with losing records.

The Cavs opened the second quarter with a never-before-seen lineup of Calderon, Clarkson, Korver, Osman and Zizic and actually outscored the Pistons by two points in the three minutes that unit was on the floor, largely because those players defended.

Detroit scored the next six points, but its frustration mounted as Drummond and Griffin were both whistled for technicals.

Instead, the Cavaliers dominated the glass and the paint - and Larry Nance Jr. had the best game of his career in his first start as a Cavalier. The elder Nance had 149 20-point games for Cleveland. "I couldn't be prouder of our guys".

Stiers had a busy post- " M*A*S*H " career with TV shows including the "North & South" miniseries and " Perry Mason " TV movies. Stiers joined the M*A*S*H cast at the beginning of its sixth season and replacing Larry Linville after he left the series.

With Thompson out, coach Tyronn Lue will likely start Larry Nance Jr., who came over in a trade last month, on Monday against Detroit. Jamal Murray and Wilson Chandler added 16 points apiece for the Nuggets, who are 9-3 since February 1. "(James) is a large part of that. He had a total of three double-doubles this season. He said he spoke with his teammates about what happened but not with Jones, a former National Basketball Association player who has been on Tyronn Lue's staff for two seasons. He was also impressed with how the 25-year-old performed on the court.

"To be honest, playing here I have quite a bit of confidence".

Because of Smith's volatile reputation and shoot-first-ask-questions later playing style, his soup-throwing tantrum led to a social-media storm Friday as Twitter filled with posts about him and his possible soup choice. With Kevin Love already being out with a fractured left hand suffered in January, there is severe lack of depth at the center position which is stretching Cleveland's frontcourt depth even thinner. What it didn't know was that he could shoot the ball. "I liked what he did off the bench because we need that spark and that energy".

"Ain't got nothing to do with me", he said.
