Brandon Knight and Kyle Singler each scored 20 points to lead six Pistons in double figures as Detroit blew out the Cavs 117-99. Tristan Thompson lead Cleveland with 19 points and nine rebounds.
Detroit outscored the Cavs 31-21 in the third quarter and really put the game away then.
Afterwards Kyrie Irving said he was "pissed off" during part of the game and described his play as lackluster. He also said he was disinterested in the second and third quarter. Irving took responsibility for it and said it would never happen again. He scored 14 on the night.
The Cavs return home to play Oklahoma City on Saturday night.
