Monday, March 18th the Detroit Pistons face the Cleveland Cavaliers for the fourth and final time in 2018-19. Detroit enters on the second game of a back to back series after beating the Raptors on Sunday. The Cavaliers last played on Saturday in a loss to the Mavericks.
Last season, Cleveland defeated the Pistons in three of their four meetings and through three games this year Detroit has won every game. The Pistons hold the all-time record having bested the Cavaliers in 127 of their 217 matches.
The Pistons continue to win and have vaulted up to the sixth position on the East’s playoff ladder. Part of this is due to a season sweep of the Toronto Raptors. Still, I won’t lie, this team feels like fools gold to me having witnessed Dwane Casey get the best out of his regular season teams in Toronto prior to plummeting in the postseason
Whether the Pistons play the 76ers, Pacers, Celtics or Raptors I see a quick exit for Casey’s squad. In the interim, they’re enjoying late season success and now have a 1.5 cushion over the Nets.
Double-doubles are becoming almost second nature to Andre Drummond who registered 15 points and 17 rebounds versus the Raptors. The combination of Drummond and Blake Griffins 25 points proved enough to capture the victory.
Ish Smith also provided pivotal minutes for the Pistons as he continues to be a Raptors killer regardless of what team he is playing with (Smith has previously bested the Raptors while in Orlando, Philadelphia and other teams).
Detroit enters the match with no major injuries to report.
Having already been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs the Cavaliers are finishing off the season looking for high points to carry forward.
In the loss to the Mavericks Collin Sexton led the way with 28 points. Kevin Love and Cedi Osman each pitched in 22 points. During the game, however, Love fell and hit his neck and back on Ante Zizic and because of the fall may not be able to suit up for this match.
In fact, the list of injuries for the Cavaliers is extensive: Larry Nance Jr. (ribs) missed the last four games and Matthew Dellavedova (concussion protocol) missed the last five games. Neither is expected to play Monday.
Tristan Thompson (foot soreness) and John Henson (wrist surgery) are definitely out.
