Cavaliers Vs. Pistons Score Update: Cleveland Still Struggling, Trail Detroit At Half By 5

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to avoid their fifth straight loss and have a pretty good slump-busting opponent in town to do that in the Detroit Pistons, who the Cavs have beaten in both prior match ups this season. Unfortunately, they can't seem to get it going despite the Pistons missing two of its more prominent scorers and they trail at the half, 49-44.

Cleveland is shooting just 38-percent and have turned the ball over nine times through 24 minutes. Kyrie Irving has five of those turnovers, although he has a team-high 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Tayshaun Prince scored 13 of his 18 points in the second quarter in which the Pistons outscored the Cavs 28-21. He leads all scorers with 18 points and hit all three of his triples.

The Pistons lost Rodney Stuckey in the first quarter with a sore left hamstring and he will not return.
