Box Score: Pistons 104 Cavs 97

After holding a three point lead at half time, the Cavaliers fell behind shortly in the third quarter and could never quite catch up. Cleveland made a strong push in the fourth quarter, getting stop after stop on the defensive end, but continously came up empty on the offensive side of the ball.

The Cavs were led by another strong showing from Jeremy Pargo who finished with 24 points, and Anderson Varejao who recorded his 14th double-double in 15 games.

Tyler Zeller had maybe his strongest game as a Cavalier, scoring 13 points, and pulling down 5 offensive rebounds.

Detroit was led by second year point guard Brandon Knight who finished with a game high 29 points.

The Cavs are now 4-17 and get back into action on Tuesday when they host the Lakers.
