The Cavs clinched the top spot in the East and the Pistons have clinched as well. So not much on the line here.
Ironically the outcome could determine whether these two teams meet in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs as well.
Given that this game could definitely be pretty vanilla, in fact I would expect it.
Having already clinched a playoff spot the Pistons have to call this season a success. At times it might have looked like they could have finished higher, and lower, but making it is part of every team’s evolution. I like this group generally.
I know he is epically bad at the free throw line but I like Andre Drummond. He is a beast on the boards and he knows what his game is offensively. Sure you have to watch where you play him late in games because they will hack but he is a big part of why this group wins.
Reggie Jackson is an explosive scorer but one who can shoot you in and out of games. If they are going to have any chance in the playoffs he is going to have to get on a roll. He has scored 20 or more in four straight heading into Tuesday.
Since joining the Pistons Tobias Harris has been solid. I really like his energy and they don’t need him to be a banger when Drummond is on the floor.
Overall the downside of this group is that they are not a strong outside shooting team.
The Cavs assured themselves top spot in the East with their win on Monday. In this final game of the year it is all about being healthy for what they expect will be a long stretch run.
Cleveland has been very good at home this season but one of their seven losses was to Detroit and they have only won one of three games against the Pistons. A win might help confirm their position if they do meet in the playoffs.
LeBron James and Kyrie Irving both played heavy minutes against Atlanta on Monday and both scored 30+ points. It was just one game but that was probably the model they want for the playoffs with Tristan Thompson in the middle providing activity and rebounding.
Kevin Love still disappears for too many stretches but they are going to need him and Thompson to bang against Drummond.
All bets are off in this one. Cleveland was very good at home SU (33-7) but their ATS record was just 20-20.
