Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond was selected to play in the All-Star Game on Tuesday as a replacement for injured Washington Wizards point guard John Wall.

The last time the Cavaliers played, they fell to the Detroit Pistons, 125-114.

The Cavs ended up taking a 63-59 lead into halftime.

"When I play aggressive and I'm up on the pick and rolls, getting steals and able to recover and block shots, it really ignites our defense", Drummond said.

Paul George had 28 points for Oklahoma City, but none in the fourth quarter while Carmelo Anthony missed three shots in the final 30 seconds.

Coach Tyronn Lue made a lineup adjustment before the Cavaliers played the Pacers on January 26, moving Tristan Thompson to starting center and Love to power forward. "A lot of blow-bys, we didn't take the challenge". Love was officially diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal, and he is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Wall was initially named as a reserve for Team LeBron but will be out six to eight weeks due to a knee injury.

"When it rains it pours".

Cleveland has been a magnet to injuries all season, as other major pieces like Thomas, Tristan Thompson, and Derrick Rose all missed significant time this season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers suffered a huge blow.

LeBron James, the leader of the Cavs, realises that Love won't be easy to replace. Ish Smith picked up 19 points and seven assists.

- Houston Rockets star James Harden became the first player in National Basketball Association history to have a 60-point triple-double Tuesday night.

"They would have said we were insane", Whiteside said.

Cleveland is now 29-20 and six games back of the Celtics for the No. 1 seed in the East.

Isaiah Thomas has never been a good defender, but those deficiencies have been exposed in Cleveland to the tune of a decades-worst defensive performance this year. "And my body's not allowing me to do that yet". The Cavaliers star has dealt with accusations of disloyalty on a couple of occasions, after leaving Cleveland for the Heat in 2010 and then returning in 2014. That margin was sliced in half by the time the horn sounded, with Detroit holding a 33-27 lead.

Johnson flashed his potential on Tuesday, going head-to-head against the best player in the National Basketball Association for much of the night and helping the Pistons end an eight-game slide.

Cleveland ranks 14th in fast break points per game (11.2) while Miami ranks 26th (7.5).

"At the end of the day, we hope for a speedy recovery for Kev and he can get back on the floor as soon as he can". "They would have said we were nuts". "This is a marathon, not a sprint".
