Cavaliers vs Pistons – NBA :On the only match being played this Sunday in England, of the FA Cup’s quarter-finals
And they have a lot to thank Lebron for, since he returned and brought them back to the spotlight.
The truth is that now he left. Irving had left a year earlier and the team, despite having maintained some players that had even been valuable on the previous season (Kevin Love, JR Smith or Kyle Korver) couldn’t find the quality to even fight for the play-offs on the weak Eastern Conference, having even dismissed the first 2 players I’ve mentioned. The Cavs have a 17-53 record and they are in penultimate place.
The team has won only 1 of their last 5 games and they have been playing pretty poorly, more or less what was expected. John Henson, JR Smith and Tristan Thompson don’t play here and Dellavedova, Larry Nance and Kevin Love are still doubtful.
The Pistons got off to a much worse start, but they are on an incredible moment of form and I believe that they know won’t leave their spot inside the “top 8”.
The team has a 36-33 record and is in 6th place, being very far from the Celtics (6 games) and having a 2 wins advantage over the Nets.
The team has a “Big 3” composed by Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson, with Griffin playing very well lately.
The team doesn’t attack very well but they are the 2nd best team in the NBA in terms of 3-pt shooting, which is a nice balance.
They are also, as I’ve said, on a very interesting moment of form, having won 7 of their last 10 games and being on a streak of 2 consecutive victories and against good quality opponents (Lakers and Raptors). There are no players injured.

Cavaliers vs Pistons – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
One of these teams is waiting for their season to end while the other has to hold on to their play-off spot and if possible secure a good seed.
Detroit has been winning their games against Cleveland easily (and there have already been 3) and I believe that the effectiveness they have from outside and their good moment of form will be enough for them to win.
