Isaiah 🙄Thomas Sits 4⃣th Quarter, Cavaliers Win🎉 121-104 Over Pistons

  |   Basketball

LeBron James scored 25 points with 14 assists, Kevin Love rejoined the offense and Isaiah Thomas sat the whole fourth quarter in a 121-104 win over the Detroit Pistons.

"What was it 'Major League,' who's the skipper, says, 'Two games in a row, that's a winning streak.' That's what it feels like right now," Love said.

The Pistons have now lost eight straight, which is the longest current losing streak in the NBA. They played Saturday, too, and were missing two of their top three players in Avery Bradley and Reggie Jackson.

In their last two meetings with the Pistons -- one this season and one in the last -- the Cavs have beaten Detroit by a combined 60 points.

But the month of January has turned the Cavs into beggars. So let's not get choosy over the opponent.

"It was a good win for us, man," Lue said.

""We'll take what we can get," Love added.

Love finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds on 8-of-14 shooting. He'd been averaging 9.2 shots this month, coinciding with Thomas joining the team and taking away Love's looks.

Thomas contributed 14 points with a season-high seven assists and shot 5-of-12.

"Yeah, I changed (the way I played) because they was mad at my shot selection," Thomas said, sarcastically. "No, I just made the right play. That's all I did."

After a rocky fourth quarter in Friday's win over the Pacers in which Thomas shot 2-of-5 with a turnover, coach Tyronn Lue left Thomas on the bench for the entire fourth against the Pistons.

"What do you want me to say? I'm just glad we won," Thomas said.
