Derrick Rose capped a 24-point performance by making the go-ahead shot with 26 seconds remaining as the visiting Detroit Pistons posted a 115-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday.Detroit’s Andre Drummond recorded 23 points and 20 rebounds, including 11 and 10, respectively, in the first quarter.Tony Snell made four 3-pointers to highlight his 18-point performance for the Pistons, who overcame a 15-point deficit to post just their third win in 12 games heading into Thursday’s rematch in Detroit.The Pistons announced earlier Tuesday that forward Blake Griffin was out indefinitely after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. The six-time All-Star has scored 15.5 points per game with 4.7 rebounds, well under his career marks of 21.7 points and 8.8 boards with the Los Angeles Clippers and Pistons.Cleveland’s Kevin Love collected 30 points and nine rebounds on Tuesday, hours after he labeled his recent behavior as “childish.” Love was referencing his outburst on the bench in a loss to Toronto last week and for showing up his teammates and coaches during a setback to Oklahoma City on Saturday.Collin Sexton had 20 points, and Cedi Osman scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half for the Cavaliers, who have dropped five in a row.
