Cavaliers forward Kevin Love out with sore foot

Cavs teammate Channing Frye will join Kevin Love as a guest on the series

The Cleveland Cavaliers are bad without LeBron James - like, 0-wins bad - but that's not such a awful thing if you're a fan looking to score a REALLY cheap ticket last minute.

Cleveland cut a 12-point Pistons fourth-quarter lead to six with a minute left on a four-point play by Korver, who was fouled making a 3-pointer by Detroit's Reggie Bullock.

Love scored 14 points against the Nets, who pulled away in the second half and dropped the Cavs to 0-4 in their first season since 2013-14 without LeBron James.

James dominated with 28 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds in his 74th career triple-double - the first with his new team.

They'll both have their hands full on Saturday night with Pacers big man Myles Turner, who's coming off a 16-point night against the Spurs.

Kyle Korver led Cleveland with 21 points. Detroit went on a 12-0 run late in the second quarter and led 58-50 at halftime. Stephenson finished with 12 points.

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.

The (1-3) Lakers have struggled out the gate this season with LeBron.

Nikola Jokic scored 24 points for the Nuggets, who were off to their best start since the 2009-10 season.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Jayson Tatum scored 24 points, and Boston rallied from a 16-point halftime deficit to beat winless Oklahoma City.

Marcus Morris added 21 points, Al Horford scored 19 and Kyrie Irving had 15 for the Celtics. Totals 41-89 13-15 103.

The Cavaliers aren't the same squad that eliminated Indy from the postseason over the past couple years, but they'll still be in a mood for some revenge when they roll into Cleveland tonight.

The point guard notched 34 of his 41 points after halftime in a record haul for a Trail Blazers' player against Orlando. Hood's been consistent and showing progress so far this season - notching double-figures in all five outings - but he's shooting under 40 percent from the floor and has just a single three-pointer in nine attempts.
