After dropping four home games since the All-Star Break and with a six-game road trip tipping off this week, the shorthanded Cavaliersreally needed a good effort on Monday night.
Larry Nance Jr. supplied 22 points and 15 rebounds after being inserted into the starting lineup.
The last time Cleveland played the Detroit Pistons, the Cavaliers lost the game and Kevin Love for up to eight weeks with a broken bone in a hand. But we can't dig ourselves holes at the beginning of games either and expect for those guys to come in and bring us back every time. Don't know right now (who will start when Thompson returns)."So there it is".
In addition to Thompson and Love, the Cavs are also missing reserve forward Jeff Green (lower back soreness). He's very fast, athletic and puts himself in a position to be successful on the floor.
Smith's been quite unreliable from beyond the arc and his defense took a major toll this season, while Thompson's never going to be an offensive factor and has looked out of rhythm and slow rather than the dominant offensive rebounder he once was, so they should just try and deal them in exchange for some late 2nd rounders or spare parts.

James and Nance have developed a nice on-court chemistry. The Cavaliers aren't the most reliable home team in terms of betting trends, but the home team has covered in eight of the last nine meetings while the Pistons have been awful on the road no matter who they play. He also missed 20 games with a left calf injury and has bounced between the starting lineup and bench when healthy."I was just letting (Nance) get a chance to figure out our offense, our defense and what we want to do", Lue said.
"It just kind of felt easy", Nance said. "Whatever it was, I just wasn't that comfortable shooting them in L.A". Cleveland had two starters - George Hill and JR Smith - fail to score in the first half.
The Nuggets dropped 19 3-pointers, including three in the final 2:26, to hold off a second-half charge from the Cavs, who remain a work in progress as they try to blend four new players in on the fly.
Both Tristan Thompson and JR Smith were key elements of the Cavs' title run but both of them have gone downhill ever since the start of the campaign, and they actually wind up hurting the team way more than their actual contributions. "So I'm sure I'll razz him about that".
"They had it going tonight offensively, so we just tried to throw everything at them", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.
