The Cleveland Cavaliers let it rain Wednesday night in Game 2 against the Detroit Pistons. They tied a NBA playoff record with 20 made three-pointers that ultimately led to a 107-90 win. Seven of those threes came from J.R. Smith who ended the game with 21 points and 5 rebounds. Detroit played the Cavaliers well for most of the game, similar to that of Game 1 but Cleveland turned a 5 point deficit into a 14 point lead in the third quarter and never looked back. They outscored the Pistons 27-15, which included 6 threes to help push that separation. Majority of their scoring came from the starting lineup. Alongside Smith’s 21, Kevin Love had 16 points and 1o rebounds, Kyrie Irving had 22 points, and LeBron James had a game high 27 points and 6 rebounds. As a team, the Cavaliers were as hot as you can get. They shot 50% from the field and a whopping 52.6% from behind the arc. It was a complete different ball game for the Pistons compared to Game 1. They couldn’t miss from deep in the 1st game but last night they struggled only shooting 4-17 but still made it competitive for most of the game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have to continue to play this inspired, uptempo basketball while the Detroit Pistons have to figure out how to finish games down the stretch. The Cavaliers lead the series 2-0 as they head to Detroit for Game 3.
