The Cavs almost got their first win of the season without Love when they faced off against the Detroit Pistons on Thursday.

They'll also miss Love's presence on the boards, where Love has been dominant with 13.5 rebounds per game (5th in the NBA), especially as they face off against a Detroit frontcourt featuring Blake Griffin (11.3 rebounds per game) and Andre Drummond (16.3 rebounds per game, second in the NBA).

The Cleveland Cavaliers going 0-5 to start the year is still hard to believe, considering the team isn't quite as talent-deprived as it was back when the first time LeBron James left, as we've mentioned throughout the last few months.

It has been tough sledding thus far for the Cavs with or without Love, as they have lost three out of their five first games by double-digit margins.

The Pistons announced that an MRI of Kennard's right shoulder revealed an AC joint sprain. After being listed as inactive for the first two games, Williams - the 27th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft - has been active for the both of the games that Baynes has missed.

Neither the Brooklyn Nets nor the Cleveland Cavaliers (post-LeBron) are expected to draw big crowds anytime soon.

James got Staples Center rocking on a go-ahead dunk with 3:31 to play before Lonzo Ball made an artful step-back 3-pointer.

Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 24 points and 11 rebounds.

Korver was one of four Cleveland backups who scored in double figures.

Marcus Morris added 21 points, Al Horford scored 19 and Kyrie Irving had 15 for the Celtics.

Love is one of only three players left from Cleveland's 2016 National Basketball Association title team.

Oklahoma City led 50-34 at halftime. He's averaging 19.0 points and 13.5 rebounds, but is shooting just 32.3 percent from the field.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Damian Lillard scored 34 of his 41 points in the second half, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Orlando Magic.
