The Cleveland Cavaliers (12-7) fell to the Milwaukee Bucks their last time out after going on a mini four-game winning streak.

The Detroit Pistons (5-16) are all the way at the bottom of the Eastern Conference.

We should be in for an exciting NBA game!

Aside from their All-Star backcourt duo, the Cavs could not get anybody else going in their most recent loss.

Donovan Mitchell put up 29 points, and Darius Garland put up 20 points.

On a night where things are clicking, Jarrett Allen would put up more points due to his dunking abilities and tendency to free up on the pick-and-roll, but he was completely taken off his game.

The Bucks simply wanted the game more, as they are in championship contention every year, which is where the Cavs want to get to.

“This is a great lesson for us,” Cavs head coach JB Bickerstaff said. “We played against an established team who knows where they need to go when they need to take it to another level. That’s what we’re learning. They took the game to playoff-level physicality, and those are things we have to learn how to compete against.”

Against a Pistons team that is not doing so well, that should give this Cavs team plenty of opportunities to patch up on their errors and get back to doing the little things that make this team elite.

The Pistons have not looked great this season, as this team has not been able to live up to expectations thus far this season.

However, things might be turning a corner, as they’ve won two of their last three games, with two of the wins coming against the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz, both teams well above .500 at the moment.

Bojan Bogdanovic has stepped up his scoring with Cade Cunningham sidelined, and Alec Burks and Killian Hayes have taken advantage of the newfound opportunities at the guard positions.

The Pistons are very versatile in that a bunch of their players can score the ball out on the perimeter and near the rim, as it has helped them cover for the gaping hole left behind by Cunningham, who has been on a tear this season.

It will be up to the Cavs to limit the Pistons’ ball movement and really make it a point to disrupt their rhythm.


The Cavs are favored by a -7 spread, as they are undoubtedly the way better team at this point.

The Pistons have shown that they can give elite teams a scare in recent games, but the Cavs also need a get-right game to get them back on track following a brutal loss to the Bucks.

Expect the Cavs to win this game and cover the spread out in the Motor City.
