Cavaliers Vs. Pistons Final Score: Cleveland Embarrassed By Detroit, 116-77

The Cleveland Cavaliers had a chance to gain a game on the Detroit Pistons to try and remove themselves from the basement of the Central Division, but played like they'd rather have the extra lottery odds in a 39-point shellacking on Tuesday night, losing 116-77.

The Cavaliers trailed by 50 points going into the fourth quarter, 100-50, and may have lost by 60 if the Pistons didn't clear their bench for the fourth. Rookie Brandon Knight scored a game-high 28 points on 11-for-12 shooting and assisted a game-high seven baskets to boot.

The Cavs' active rookie Tristan Thompson did have a double-double in the embarrassing loss with 12 points and 13 rebounds, but he also shot 6-for-16.

The Cavs have six games remaining on their schedule and play against Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

Cavaliers Vs. Pistons Score Update: Cleveland Down 23 At Half, 61-38

The Cleveland Cavaliers have suffered a long fall from grace this season, especially since Kyrie Irving has been sidelined with a shoulder injury. The probable rookie of the year is missing his 10th straight game on Tuesday night against the Detroit Pistons and the Cavaliers find themselves down 23 at the half, 61-38.

The Cavaliers are allowing the Pistons to shoot 64-percent through the first half while only shooting 40-percent themselves. They have turned the ball over 11 times and are getting outscored 14-2 on the fast break as a result.

The only bright spot for the Cavs has been their other first round pick Tristan Thompson, who has eight points and seven rebounds in just under 16 minutes of action.

Tayshaun Prince leads all scorers with 10 points for Detroit.
