The Cavs beat up on the Pistons to take a 1-0 series lead, winning 102-82. LeBron was dominate from the start of the game hitting the Cavs first shot. He made some beautiful passes, great stops, and even hit a half court buzzer beater right before halftime. The Cavs went into half shooting 61% and it looked like the Pistons knew they couldn’t keep up.
The Cavs continue to beat up on the Pistons in the second half. Joe Smith made some nice offensive plays and continues to play a big role off the bench. At the end of the game, the Cavs blew the game open to win by 20 points. The Pistons made a short run to cut the lead to seven with LeBron James on the bench in the fourth quarter. Mike Brown took a timeout and got his superstar back in the game. This was a no-brainer and showed that the Pistons will not be able to keep up with LeBron.
Cavs Player of the Game – LeBron James – 38 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, and 0 turnovers
Pistons Player of the Game – Rodney Stuckey, 20 points and 4 assists (The sad thing about this is he missed 14 of his 21 shots)
