CLEVELAND (AP) -- Tayshaun Prince matched a season high with 29 points and rookie Brandon Knight added 16 to help the Detroit Pistons beat Cleveland 87-75 on Wednesday night, handing the Cavaliers their fifth straight loss.
Prince made four 3-pointers and added eight rebounds for the Pistons, who closed with an 11-4 run after the Cavs got within five.
Rookie Kyrie Irving had 20 points with 9 rebounds and 6 assists for Cleveland, which has dropped eight of nine.
Irving's jumper made it 76-71 with 4:08 left, but Knight hit a 3-pointer, Jason Maxiell grabbed a rebound and dunked and Prince hit a short hook.
Greg Monroe added 10 rebounds for the Pistons, who scored more than 80 points for the first time in four games.
BEST OF MAXIM
The tape may be out. Forty-two games in to his NBA career, opposing defenses are starting to clamp down on rookie point guard Kyrie Irving. The result, at least if we are using ‘win total’ as a guage, has not been pretty with the team dropping four straight contests — seven of their last eight — with the most recent being a double-digit loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
There were like 1500 people watching the Pistons-Wizards game last night, hence the lack of buzz from Brandon Knight jumping over the Detroit bench and into the Gatorade buckets. The Pistons won a meaningless game, the Wizards draft pick positioning (2nd worst NBA record) gets better and BC lands this video of Knight getting rained on. Everyone is a winner this morning.

Sloan, Harris get chance with Gibson out
The Cavaliers will have to adjust to playing without guard Daniel Gibson for likely the rest of the season. Not that he was having a great season. Just the opposite. His trusty jump shot had abandoned him for much of the season.Backup guards Donald Sloan and Manny Harris have been forced into major minutes. Both of them have left observers...
One word review: Horrible.
Nothing much else to say about this one. 19 assists to 18 turnovers for the Cavaliers compared to 25 assists to 10 turnovers for the Sixers. Right now, the Cavaliers are struggling to even be competitive in games.
I’m not sure if there is such a thing as dog days of spring or not, but if there is, you could arguably say the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-29, 10th in the East) are there.
The excitement of trade deadline has passed, the thought of the Cavaliers making the playoffs has long passed, injuries to Anderson Varejao and Daniel Gibson, along with the trade of Ramon Sessions has left the...
