Outlook

Not exactly the opponent the Pistons wanted after returning from their brutal road trip. The Cavaliers have won seven of the eight.

On the bright side (maybe?), Shaquille O’Neal will miss the game with an injured shoulder. Another bright spot (probably?), Cleveland plays at a fairly slow pace.

  • Check out Daily Dime Live during the game. I won’t be chatting, but the talk might turn to the Pistons at some point. If not, you can at least keep up with other NBA action.
