Reeling Detroit Pistons host the Cleveland Cavaliers

PI-NBA-Clippers-Blake-Griffin-012618

Speaking of injury, the Cavaliers received potentially terrible news on Tuesday night, as Kevin Love left the contest after just five minutes with a hand injury.

Love was pulled out of the game during the first quarter. The team said he had a non-displaced fracture in his fifth metacarpal and his status would be updated after additional examination Wednesday in Cleveland.

Love underwent surgery on the same hand in October 2009 that required three screws to be inserted. "We gave up a lot to get him, including Tobias Harris - one of the hardest-working, highest-character players I know - and two high-quality young men in Avery Bradley and Boban Marjanovic", Gores said.

The reeling Detroit Pistons - who'll be short-handed following last night's trade - host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Johnson may be one of the pieces the team could seek to move for more veteran help, though after Tuesday's performance, the Pistons may think twice about sending him-and the potential that was on full display against the Cavs-packing before the trade deadline. In opposition of Miami, a little over half of Cavaliers games have finished over the total.

Griffin, 28, is one of five players in the National Basketball Association averaging over 22 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists per game this season, the others being LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and DeMarcus Cousins (who's now out for the season).

Magic Johnson Calls For Firings Amid Michigan State Sexual Assault Scandal
Former sports doctor Larry Nassar has been sentenced to 175 years in state prison, but he likely won't serve his time in MI . "If we have learned anything from the Nassar sentencing, too many voices of too many victims were unheard".

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has already picked Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George to replace Cousins and Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond to replace Wall.

This team can beat anybody in the East and the game against the Cavs has likely been circled on their calendar for some time.

The Pistons used a 17-3 outburst to gain a 79-68 lead midway through the third.

This is the second year in a row that Love went down with an injury around this time of year.

- Houston Rockets star James Harden became the first player in National Basketball Association history to have a 60-point triple-double Tuesday night. It was the Cavs' 11th loss in their last 16 games.

Griffin is expected to join the Pistons for Tuesday's game against Cleveland (29-19). LeBron James put up 21 points, seven helpers and six boards for Cleveland, which had won its previous two.
