The Pistons were up 12 heading into the fourth.

The Cavaliers were 3 of 18 on 3-point attempts Wednesday and have made 28 of 87 from behind the arc for the season. Their first three victories were secured by a combined six points. Cleveland may boast a positive attendance record of 19,432 tickets sold through two games, but that doesn't reflect how many seats were actually filled at the onset of the contest.

The Cleveland Cavaliers with LeBron James were a major draw over the past four seasons. Detroit's offense lacked rhythm in the early going, but Stanley Johnson's 11 first-quarter points kept his team within striking distance. Oladipo and Bogdanovic hit 3-pointers, and Collison knocked down a jumper from the corner and scored in the lane, to lead 81-66. Dudley scored 12 points. Kuzma added two huge dunks down the stretch of Los Angeles' second win in two days after an 0-3 start.

Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 24 points and 11 rebounds.
