Love missed the game with a sore left foot, and Detroit lost Luke Kennard to a right shoulder injury after a Cleveland player set a screen on him in the second quarter.

The Cavaliers are facing a big loss as Kevin Love will be out for Thursday's game against the Pistons. "Then coming back in the second half, I thought Kyle got going, Larry (Nance Jr.) was good".

In Love's first season in Cleveland without LeBron James, he is averaging a team-high 19 points and 13.5 rebounds per game.

Jordan Clarkson has been doing it all season long and he was red-hot on Thursday night - finishing with 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including 2-of-4 from deep.

Cavaliers guards clearly made an effort to be more aggressive in attacking the basket early, something that Lue emphasized prior to the game.

Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, though only landed five for 20.

If Baynes nor backup center Daniel Theis - who was listed as questionable on Friday - can play, rookie center Robert Williams III could be in line for even more playing time after playing four minutes against the Orlando Magic in his National Basketball Association debut.
