40 Jeramy Grant is not enough. The Detroit Pistons are located at Caves, 113-109

CLEVELAND – The Detroit Pistons were in control. An alley lob from Cade Cunningham gave the Marvin Bagley III Pistons an 80-68 lead late in the third quarter.

But the Cavaliers used 24-4 in the second half to control the match, leaving their home circuit with the win. The Pistons fell to the Cavaliers at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Saturday, 113-109, despite a top 40 points of the season from Jeramy Grant. Sadiq Bey finished with 20 points and six rebounds, and Kid Cunningham added a double-double with 15 points, 10 assists and six rebounds.

Cleveland’s run came after Stewart, who had a solid defensive play and kept Mobley in check for much of the night, exited the game with 3:35 left in the third quarter after making his fourth foul.

Detroit struggled to score as Cunningham, Grant and Bay have been off the bench in recent weeks, and that was the case on Saturday. A five-man bench unit made up of Saben Lee, Rodney McGruder, Isaiah Livers, Marvin Bagley III and Kelly Olynyk struggled to get ahead of anything. Cleveland took forever with 39.4 seconds to play for third, when they defeated Kevin Love 3 for a 14-1 stretch and put the Cavaliers ahead 82-81.
