Derrick Rose hit a 15-footer with 27 seconds left and the Detroit Pistons rallied for a 115-113 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rose, who scored 24 points, hit a runner in the lane to give Detroit a 114-113 lead and cap a comeback that began with the Pistons trailing 110-91 early in the fourth quarter. Collin Sexton’s late shot didn’t hit the rim and Cleveland was called for a shot clock violation. The Cavaliers have lost five straight.
Kevin Love matched a season high with 30 points, but had only two shots in the fourth quarter. Love made Cleveland’s last basket, a 3-pointer with 2:57 to go, as the rebuilding Cavaliers continue to have problems closing out games.
