Irving seals sweet 16 for Celtics, Cavs rout Pistons

Putting together their most impressive performance of the season, the Cleveland Cavaliers dominated the Detroit Pistons in a 116-88 victory at Little Caesars Arena on Monday night.

Kevin Love led the Cavs with a double-double on 19 points and 11 rebounds, while LeBron James scored 18 and dished out eight assists. "That's what happens when we don't let up".

Coming into play on Monday night, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James led the National Basketball Association in minutes per game at 38.6.

Against the Pistons, though, James was limited to 27 minutes-still joint second on the team, behind stand-in starting point guard Jose Calderon.

"Yeah, I hear about that all the time", Lue said.

The terrorists, who were hiding in a house, were asked to lay down arms but they kept on firing on search parties. Naseer Ahmad, a youth from Chimmar village in Kulgam district, returned to the mainstream, officials said.

The Clippers and Cavaliers went into overtime in a tight matchup, and the Cavs came out on top, 118-113. We knew they were going to come out and try to give us their best shot, and we had to be ready for that.

James said after Monday's win: "You make so much a big thing about my minutes".

Stanley Johnson, who drew the defensive assignment on James, said: "He's a great player and all that, but what really killed me was the first foul". As a team, the Cavaliers' main weapon during the first two quarters was the 3-pointer, with seven different players connecting on 11-of-17 (65 percent) from long-range. There were a lot of good things tonight that felt like or looked like the stuff we're capable of out there on the floor. But we just had a lot of flurries.

No, this one's on the coach, a point Van Gundy couldn't stress enough. In the latter category, Detroit managed to hit on just 29 percent from the field, one reason why they trailed 101-62 when the horn sounded to end the period. That's exactly what they did after a jumping out to a huge first-quarter lead, going up 36-23.

Channing Frye scored eight points early in the second, helping the Cavs push the lead to 20 points. The 36-year-old Calderon has seven points, five assists and five turnovers in 48 minutes on the season and hasn't produced a basket since October 25. They had difficulty getting stops against a team that needed only three quarters to reach triple figures. Here is Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue after the Detroit win, via Dave McMenamin of ESPN. "That's what we're capable of doing when we play the right way". "It's not like Dwyane's not used to playing the point".
