The Pistons team that Cleveland dropped in four straight games last postseason was a shadow of the teams that dominated the decade. And right now, the shorthanded Pistons team the Cavaliers faced on Wednesday is a shadow of that team. The Wine and Gold were simply too much for the scrappy young Pistons on Thanksgiving Eve – carving up the Motown squad – 98-88. LeBron led everyone with 34 points, going an even 12-for-24 from the floor – including a monstrous throwdown midway through the fourth – and 9-of-11 from the stripe. James added eight boards, seven assists and a steal. King James has been a beast on the road through the month of November, scoring at least 30 points in every game. His numbers in six games away from The Q this month are 35.1 points, 6.5 boards and 7.1 assists per game. In that span, Cleveland is 5-1. Pics from last three games after the break.
